Run Bike Run
Saturday 7th October 2023
The Active Northumberland Kielder Run Bike Run follows an almost entirely off-road course around northern Europe’s largest man-made lake, Kielder Water, in Northumberland.
NEW DISCIPLINE DISTANCES AND TRANSITION LOCATIONS FOR 2023
10KM Run – 34KM Bike – 6.4KM Run*The full event distance will remain the same, however for 2023 we have decided to locate Transition 1 at Kielder Waterside to allow for easier sign-on before the event and easier access to the course for spectators.
The next stage sees you leave Kielder Waterside on your bike following the Lakeside Way up to Kielder Village, then taking in the North Shore on two wheels, covering 34km* you will return over the impressive Kielder Dam to the South Shore and Transition 2 on the approach to Bull Crag Peninsula. We would recommend mountain bikes, hybrid bike, gravel or cyclocross for the bike section. Traditional road bikes are not suitable.
The final stage is a 6.4km* run taking in the final stages of the 10k route and the stunning Bull Crag Peninsula and back along the Lakeside Way to the finish at Kielder Waterside.
*Distances are approximate
