Raby Castle 2.5k

The 19th Annual Raby Races will take place on Sunday 28th May 2023, hosted once again by Teesdale AC within the spectacular scenery offered up by Raby Castle and its surrounding 200-acre estate. Your race number gets you and two supporters free entry into the grounds and the deer park, and with free parking its a lovely place to have a picnic after the races have finished. Your race number will enable you to buy discounted entry to The Castle, and you can also buy tickets for the new Plotters Forest, an outdoor playground in a Natural Christmas Tree Plantation (no discount sorry). This year there are three races taking place, the 2.5k Fun Run for those under 11 years old the 5k Fun Run, for those aged 11 and over and the highly regarded 10k Race for competitors aged 16 and over. Adults can run with under 5's in the 2.5k Fun Run. (See each race page for online entry – STRICTLY NO ENTRIES ON THE DAY)


Results for this race are not yet available.
