For general info, please see our advice for new athletes page here.

Important Information on Parking, Travel, Registration etc.

Race Parking is at Durham County Hall (DH1 5UF) car park only. It’s free and only 400m from the start – please do not park anywhere else, please do not try to park closer to the course as you will be charged, or worse, and we could lose this venue! There will be plenty of parking for everybody at County Hall but please car share & obey the car park marshals!

Registration is in County Hall reception area should you need it – use the main entrance to County Hall. Toilets are located in County Hall foyer and there will be portaloos close to the race start area. Do not enter County Hall in muddy shoes – they won’t let us come back next year if you do! The course is walking distance from County Hall car park (follow the signs) & is on the former Aykley Heads sports fields.

Use the A1M and turn off at Junction 62 (signposted for Durham & Sunderland). At the top of the slip road turn right at the roundabout joining the A690 into Durham. At the next roundabout (where the dual carriageway ends) stay on the A690 & follow signs to City Centre & Consett (straight over). At the next roundabout stay on the A690 & follow signs for Crook, Consett & County Hall (straight over – but get in the outside lane). At the next traffic lights turn right signposted for Consett, Chester-Le- St & County Hall. Turn right at the next roundabout into County Hall – you’ve arrived!

Travelling West (e.g. from Sunderland)
