https://www.highterrainevents.co.uk/kielder-10km-night-run Starting and finishing at Kielder castle, this is still the same figure of eight format, with the course returning through the castle grounds after the initial loop. The initial loop is slightly longer than previous editions.
Starting in front of Kielder Castle you'll soon be running on a few twisting singletrack sections, including 'Gibbies Knowe' on the blue graded mtb route, then from here return back to Kielder Castle . Then it’s back out, past the Minotaur Maze picking up the trail through Viaduct Wood along the banks of the River North Tyne.
This leads onto a loop which initially crosses underneath then across the historical Kielder Viaduct.
The route then follows the course of the old railway line alongside Bakethin Nature Reserve, leading onto a section of the Lakeside way multi-user trail. Follow the lakeside way, returning back to Kielder Castle to a well deserved finish.
