Sledmere House is located 7 miles northwest of Driffield. Postcode for Sat Nav YO25 3XG

We will be using the large ‘Pig Pen’ car park that we used for the 2023 race. Please do not attempt to park in the main car park by the entrance to Sledmere House. Instead, follow the race car park signs and marshals who will direct you to the correct parking area. Parking is free of charge.

Race HQ
There will be a Race Village located In front of Sledmere House, opposite the start/finish area. This will include Fun Run & Trail Taster registration & number collection desk, light refreshments outlet, portable toilets, massage service, sponsors desk, First Aid and Great Driffield Radio.

Sledmere House gift shop and Cafe will both be closed on the night. However Sledmere will be providing refreshements of Tea’s, Coffees and Cakes at the race village.
The main toilets by the main entrance will be open as well as portable toilets by the race start/finish area. Note: As the event is held within the grounds of a stately home, it’s imperative that only these toilet facilities are used and no ‘au naturel’ alternatives are sought. Please come ready to run as changing facilities are not provided.

Headphones/earphones are not permitted to be used during the race, this is to ensure safety for all and so that marshal instructions can be heard.

Dogs are not permitted to join runners on the course, but they are welcome at Sledmere House. They must be kept on a lead at all times and any dog poo must be cleared and placed in the bins within the grounds.

Race Course and Finish
Both the Fun Run and Trail Taster 3.6km start and finish in front of Sledmere House. The 10K starts a couple of hundred metres along the path from Sledmere House. Its only takes 5 minutes to walk down there. Note: The start area for the 10K is quite narrow, so get to the start a little ahead of time if you prefer to be near the front when the race begins. However, as it’s chip timed, your positioning at the start makes no difference to your finish time. The 10K finishes in front of Sledmere House too. There will be a lead bike on the 10K and a sweeper runner/walker at the rear.

Water stations / Post Race Snacks
There are two water stations on the course. One is located near to the finish area, which is also available at the end of the first loop of the course. The second water station is located at the top end of the course. At the end of the race, there are snacks available.

10K Prizes
Prizes will be awarded on the night to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd placed male and female finishers. All other age category prizes will be posted out after the event.

Pre/Post Race Massage

Barry Kitching will be once again providing a massage service for runners. He only asks for a donation for his service.

Health and Safety

As this is a trail race, the ground can be uneven in places. Entrants should take care and be aware of any hazards. This is an evening event and fading light requires additional concentration. In the event of daylight being an issue the organsiers may ask runners to amend their route to minimise any health and safety risks, please follow the Marshall guidance at all times.
