This is a very scenic race run in the grounds of Newstead Abbey, birth place of the poet Byron. The out and back course is gently sloping for the first half mile and broadly flat after that. The finish is before the initial slope and is ideal for those wishing to obtain a fast time.The combination of usually fine weather, delightful surroundings and the opportunity for fast folk to "go for it" combined with a chance for newer slower runners to test themselves in a friendly, encouraging atmosphere, over a short distance, is adding to the popularity of this evening race.
Entry to the race is via the Ravenshead Abbey entrance, there is NO vehicle
access via Newstead village
