A new 'free to enter' 10k is coming to Teesside on Sunday (22 July) with a race where runners will be given the opportunity of competing to the backdrop of one of the region’s most historic grounds. The Trust10 takes place at Ormesby Hall, a Grade I listed building that dates back to the 18th century
The free race will be staged each month and is the latest event that has been created by the National Trust for their Trust10 series, which also includes trail runs in Longshaw Estate, Hanbury Hall, Goldolphin and Cragside.
The principle behind the events is to encourage participation in sport with the backdrop of spectacular scenery – Ormesby Hall, which was completed in 1754, has been under the control of the National Trust since 1962.
Alex Hennessey, operations manager at Ormesby Hall, commented: “We’re really excited to be staging the Trust10 here at Ormesby Hall, it will be a great opportunity for people to have a regular goal each month, as well as a chance to explore this special place.
“We want as many people to enjoy their local environment as possible, so as well as hosting the Trust10 each month, the route itself will be open to all runners throughout the year for free.”
The Trust10K at Ormesby Hall will be staged on the fourth Sunday of every month and is free to enter. Further information is available here.
