Poultry Run



All ages

  • 7.5 km multi terrain running


It is a multi-terrain event and has built up a reputation as one of the friendliest and most fun events in the North East running calendar. Why not run in fancy dress and embrace the festive season. All finishers will receive a quality Poultry Run T-Shirt. This year there is a slightly changed run of approximately 7.5 miles but remains one that covers country lanes, bridleways, footpaths and muddy farmer’s fields. The course is generally ascending for the first half of the race, with a steep climb at approximately half-way to the Boulby mast. It is then an exhilarating downhill run down to the finish  Sturdy trainers or trail shoes are recommended – there is too much road to suggest fell shoes. (Unless there is heavy snow as in 2009). With costumes, a brass band and lots of camaraderie the Poultry Run is a great way to get your festive holiday off to a flying start. And who knows, with some generous prizes of Christmas fare – including the eponymous poultry – it could also be a handy way to stock your larder!
