Further information

Penshaw was the first race in the Urban Trails series of races. The Pieces of 8 10K is set on the fantastic trails surrounding Penshaw Monument. This race has everything you would want in a Trail Race. Great views set on lovely trails. We describe the route as undulating, some that have actually taken part in the race, go as far to say that this course is brutal for a 10k! This race is part of the Urban Trail League. A set of 4 challenging races set in locations that might surprise you.rnrnThis race also has great facilities for the whole family. Herrington park has a children's play area, woodland walks and fun trail walks. There is also a great cafe and an ice cream van on the park as well.
