wannabe ultra runner?

I prefer to take the approach of running in Aldi trainers and kit, and grinning at the more experienced kit buyers as I pass them. The Aldi trainers give me that psychological edge

Trail Outlaws present Saint Cuthbert's Way Ultra.

Bridging the national borders between Scotland and England, this inspiring 100km(62.5 miles) route will be reversed. Starting at Holy Island in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Northumberland coast. The route heads Westwards crossing large sections of the Northumberland National Park and the beautiful Scottish Borders region. Finishing at Melrose, which is where Saint Cuthbert's journey is thought to have started.

There is also a 40 mile race options starting at Wooler.

Andy I can show you at least 2 links from Tanfield to Beamish, the best of which is via Causey arch

Hi Rob,

Yes I use the Bowes railway line to link up to Beamish/Causey then run back the Sunderland/Consett line to make it a loop.

Another great route is the tidal path on the Wear starting/finish at Penshaw. Best to run when tide is out to stay on full tidal path Is a loop as run back on the other side of the river.

Between 16 to 20(ish) miles depending on if you run to Sea or not.

For Newcastle/Gateshead runners there is good run from Blaydon rugby club if you head up the railway line and take a left after about a mile up a hill. It takes you up to Tanfield, from there you can run back via Dunston or head over to Beamish and Causey Arch  You can even head down the Tanfield Railway line towards from there tp the Angel of the North and Gateshead
