The No Ego Trail Challenge - Durham Course

The Hamsterley 'Conquer the forest', 10k and 10 mile will be the first in a series of NO Ego planned events in 2015 where runners take on mother natures best terrain. Not Bob the builders. Please check out out web site for other 'Conquer the Forest' challenges at Otterburn in Northumberland and Dalby in N.Yorkshire. Hamsterley Forest is a delightful 2000 hectare oasis, sprawling along the sides of a sheltered valley. This event starts at 10.40am for the 10 mile and 11.05am for the 10km. Choose your distance at registration. Both distances are the same price. The route will be well marked, but don't expect us to hold your hand with marker tape every 50 yards. Look down to check for ground conditions, look up to see the next marker. It may be 100 meters it may be half a mile. Off road trail shoes or full knobbies are HIGHLY recommended. There will be NO constructed obstacles on this race route. However, each event will have enough multi terrain obstacles, fallen tress, mud, water, hills and a bit more mud and hills to keep your heart pumping and adrenaline flowing. The course will take you away from the start onto fire roads, single track paths, fire breaks, narrow tree breaks, mud bogs and through the toughest areas Hamsterley has to offer. This is real trail running. There will be flatish undulating breaks on the route and the plus to climbing hills is that you always have to come back down. Always appreciated!! You will feel like a rock star when you complete this event
