The Raby Castle 10k race and 5k and 1.2k fun runs will be held the week before Whitsuntide bank holiday in 2015. The Raby Castle runs are run entirely within the grounds of Raby Castle, and apart from the odd tractor the races are virtually traffic free. The races takes you through the scenic Raby Castle Estate with deer herds and long horned cattle; one lap for the 5k and two laps for the 10k. Please note that the course is not suitable for wheelchair athletes. The new 1.2k fun run is one lap from the start and then cuts back past the front of Raby Castle to the finish area.

Entry to the race gives you access to the Raby Castle grounds and gardens for your family during and after the race. Please note you must arrive early entering via the South gate; as the 5k fun run starts first at 10.00 am followed by the 10k race at 10.45. The 1.2k fun run is expected to start straight after the 10k start at 10..45.

The first Raby Castle events were held in 2003 after the cancellation of the Barnard Castle 10mile run and 4mile fun run in 2001.

We receive entries from various parts of the country and lots of interest from all the local running clubs who supply a number of top athletes at this event. The current 10k course record is 30 minutes and 16 seconds set by Yarod Hagos in 2012, the ladies record is held by Sarah Tunstall who set a time of 35 minutes and 54 seconds in 2009.

For a few months before the race, entry forms can be downloaded from this site and are also available around the town and in the Sports Centre, you can also enter online at runnersworld.co.uk
