27 Jul 2016

Maiden Castle, Durham
Starts: 19:00
Distance: 5.2 Miles
Entry Fee: £10.00 - £12.00

Clamber – A summer cross country race

Race the most beautiful woodland trails and grassy meadows in Durham. Our undulating race is a real beauty, taking you past the confluence of the rivers Browney & Wear, alongside the Wear itself, past both the wonderful wicker man, wicker women and all this still within hearing distance of Durham Cathedral Bells. After enjoy a social drink or two while partaking of our now famous complimentary buffet during prize giving at the Court Inn. Or as Malcom Cox of Sunderland Strollers put it: “Well call me foolish, call me irresponsible, call me what you like but there is no better feeling than running as fast as you are capable of round the best trails in Durham and then drinking beer! Happy days!” And David Savage of Washington RC: "The toughest 5 miles I’ve ever done and the best after race food of any race."
