Wooler Trail Marathon is set in the heart of Northumberland National Park and includes many splendid uninterrupted views to the far horizon and many undulations along the way. The race starts in Wooler before heading towards some of the best views in the country, if not the world. The race is split across two days so why not come up for the whole weekend. The Sunday after the race is party night in Wooler! See travel page for further details.
This is a challenging Trail Marathon with just over 6000 feet of ascent, but the views available are well worth the effort. The half marathon route also offer a challenging run with some of the same great views. All the routes will be marked with tape and signs.
All of the check points have basic first aid facilities. If you suffer an injury or accident that warrants direct medical attention and you are not able to get to an aid station, then please try to phone one of the race directors(07734309500 or 07984307900). If you have no phone contact, ask any runners that pass you to relay the message.
We do provide first aid personnel, with a mobile ambulance on the route and staff at the start/finish. If you are injured but able to walk, please make your way to the nearest check point. If you suffer a severe injury, encounter someone in serious difficulty or are in any doubt at all please call 999. If you are on/beside a driveable tarmac road then please ask for the Ambulance service. If you are not by a drivable road then please request the Police and request Mountain Rescue.
