Due North Events Half Marathon Trail Race Series
Supported by The North Face & Sportsshoes.com
About the Trail Race Trio ...
These 3 races are aimed at all levels of runners. From those new to trail running, those wanting to increase distance and those more experienced runners who are looking to test themselves over a new course.
Due North are keen to promote events which are inclusive, therefore we think that these 3 courses, although technical in parts and include some challenging terrain and ascents, we have made them accessible to all by fully way marking the route and giving generous cut-offs. This way the experienced runner can take on the course, mentally and physically pushing themselves across the mud, steep climbs and tricky descents whilst the less experienced, or ‘leisurely runner’ can relax and take in the stunning scenery and enjoy the experience of running in this beautiful part of the country.
Prizes will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd Male & Female and also age categories, V40, V50 and V60 Male and Female.
- Every runner will receive a FREE gift bag with Due North merchandise and a few more treats
- Each runner will also get food and drink at the finish included in the entry cost
- Car parking is included.
Food & Drink:
- Water stops will be allocated along the route with various refreshments
- Please have a bottle or cup to use as we are aiming to be more environmentally friendly.
For each race you are required to have the minimum of a waterproof jacket with hood, a cup/bottle – no cups are provided at the drink stations – and a mobile phone with a location app such as OS Locate https://shop.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/apps/other-apps/os-locate/,
For anyone who prefers to have a paper map rather than a gps device/mobile app, then grid references and a diagram of the route can be found on each individual race page.
No dogs are permitted to join you on the race due to crossing farmland.
Spectators are welcome and in each race description we have detailed the best viewing points. The Burnsall Half Marathon Start/Finish venue and the Kettlewell Half Marathon Start/Finish Venue are perfect for bringing the family. Beautiful riverside locations, ideal for picnics and plenty of room for games whilst waiting for the finishers. Spectators may also be able to buy food from our on-site caterers.
