chopwell - COming soon in 2020

Dusk til Dawn… Chopwell Wood. Coming soon in 2020!

Chopwell Woodland Park is a 360-hectare mixed woodland on the fringe of Gateshead. Miles of woodland paths and old colliery railway tracks making it very popular with walkers and cyclists. The trails criss-cross through the woodland, offering glimpses of the area’s industrial past including restored railway trucks that would have carried coal from the nearby collieries.

The Woodland Park is great for trail running and enjoying the local wildlife. If you’re lucky you may spot one of the deer, badgers, red kites and squirrels. The route follows well marked footpaths/forest trails/bridleway with occasional views of woodland sculptures.

Solo runners, and teams of 2-5 participants complete as many loops of the course as possible from the start of the race until the end.

Descend Park-Runduro – coming soon in 2020

Hamsterley Forest is the largest forest in County Durham and covers 4900 square acres. It is home to the one and only Danny Hart’s descend bike park. We are incredibly fortunate and a little bit mad to take the opportunity to hurtle down the trails on foot. This will be an adrenaline fuelled, quad destroying couple of hours of racing. Will anyone be faster downhill than the bikers? We will see….

The evening of racing will follow the MTB Enduro format, where we will race down multiple timed stages, set off at intervals. There will be non-competitive transition stages to allow you to get back to the top of the course. All stages will be chip timed and you will receive a print out following completion.
