Stately Trails: Constable Burton

May 23rd 2024
Constable Burton Hall

At Constable Burton you will find a beautiful Grade I listed Georgian house set amongst extensive formal and woodland gardens in the heart of Wensleydale. We bring you the opportunity to race a 5km or 10km on stunning trails through this exclusive estate! Expect gentle trails across pasture fields, farm tracks and through woodland. The course is beautiful, but it may still be muddy! There is a stream crossing on the course where you can opt for the bridge, or just get your feet wet!

Course Markings

The race course will be well marked with orange barrier tape and pin flags, trail junctions and turns will be well marked with coloured arrow signs to show you the way. All critical turns and road crossings will be manned by our marshals so you are going to have to try pretty hard to go wrong but be aware that course markings can be moved or stolen and for this reason we strongly advise carrying a copy of the route map.

Aid Stations

There will be one water station for the 10km course at the start of the second lap. Water is available for 5km runners at the end of their race.


Toilets will be available at Race HQ.

Runners & Rubbish

Please respect the trails and the beauty of the dales by disposing of any rubbish at one of our aid stations or take it home with you.

Code of conduct

Be polite to our marshals, first aiders and members of staff, these people are volunteering their free time to assist you in reaching the finish line and are doing everything they can to get you there.

Do not rely on marshals, photographers or other staff persons to direct you on your course. It is YOUR responsibility to know your course and follow the course signs.

Remember to always remain on the designated marked trails, no short cutting.

Poles are not necessary for this event.

This course includes single track. If you are attempting to pass, please alert the runner in front of you before flying past them. Likewise, if you hear a runner approaching you from behind, attempt to find a spot to allow the runner to pass.

As a general rule, when passing a runner, announce, 'on your left'.

Uphill runners/hikers have the right of way to downhill runners. Remain in control as you descend and respect the other runners.

Everyone is after the same goal here so let’s be respectful of each other’s races and have fun.
