We wish Josh well as he begins a new life chapter at York University. Looking ahead to 2019: please pencil in Thursday, 25 April, for our first juniors of next year (2019).

Welcome to the evening trail 10k in the beautiful grounds of Sledmere Estate located 5 miles from Driffield in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds.
The course is a small and large lap with ground conditions ranging from grass to hard chalk paths. There are no deep sections of mud however there are some very uneven sections and surfaces could be slippery in wet conditions. The start is in front of the house and is the same as the start for the fun run. For the 10k runner continue for a second lap, passing through the start and completing a larger lap, finishing with a fast flat and downhill chalk path before a final uphill 400m to the finish in front of the main hall.
Parking is directly off the B1253 and will be in the house car park or across the road in the gallery car park, follow signs. Please follow the directions of the car parking attendants. The start is a very short (2min) walk from the car parks.
