South Park 20 (inc relays)

Flat and fast 20 mile multiple lap race with marathons in mind

Darlington Harriers & AC, are hosting this multi lap event for those runners who are looking to run a fast 20 mile race, prepare for a full or half marathon.

Using predominantly the same course as the Darlington South park parkrun, although removing the infamous ‘Squirrel Hill’ (who has seen better days of late). Starting outside the tropical bird cage…well it has a parrot. Runners will head out past the children’s play area before taking a sharp left down a slight incline before taking another left as you head towards the bandstand. Taking a right turn, takes the runners around the outskirts of the bandstand and around a cluster of trees and a sharp left before taking the left path adjacent to the river Skerne before once again turning left one last time back to the starting point.

Runners will receive a bespoke medal. We will allow teams of up to 4 to enter a relay team on the day for those not training for a marathon but want to be part of the event and support friends and family.

All Competitors will receive a race medal. Prizes will be given to 1st 3 in both Men and Women’s race with some Veteran prizes. All prizes will be posted to winners post race.


This years race will take place on Saturday September 4th at 11pm with registration opening at 10am after the mornings parkrun.
