Come and Beat the Bull! Run the Kielder 10K around the stunning Bull Crag Peninsula of Kielder Water.
If the full marathon is 20 miles too far for you, panic not you can still enjoy the stunning scenery and join us on Saturday 3rd October for possibly the most beautiful 10K in the UK! The 2014 event was a sell out so make sure you get your place booked quick once entries open!
We're delighted to welcome back for a second year our sponsors Active Northumberland, supported by Northumberland County Council.
The 10K, which starts and finishes at Leaplish Waterside Park takes you off on the Lakeside Way, in the opposite direction to the marathon and you will head up and over the Bull Crag Peninsula before rejoining the Lakeside Way and heading along the shoreline of this stunning lake back to Leaplish. You will be absorbed by your beautiful surroundings as you churn out the miles!!
TRANQUIL, PEACEFUL, INVIGORATING, INSPRIRING, CHALLENGING, PICTURESQUE, MEMORABLE, REWARDING...but just remember...it's no bus ride!!
The Kielder 10K closely follows the start of the Run Bike Run on the 3rd October and sets off an amazing weekend of activities, in which there is something for everyone!
