900-year-old Auckland Castle in Bishop Auckland was one of the primary palaces of the Prince Bishops of Durham and is now a visitor destination, sharing the stories of these powerful men. In 2020 its surrounding 150-acre parkland will be home to the Wild Deer Auckland Castle 10k Trail Run, supported by Shildon Running Club. The outstanding castle will act as the backdrop to the run through the picturesque Deer Park, taking in historic features and natural beauty along the way.
There will also be a 2.5k Family Run for all ages.

The Event will be part of our “Castles Challenge” which will include the Lambton Castle Half Marathon a week later on 22/8/2020. Discount available for those tackling both eventsEntry Opening Soon
