Lancaster Castle has an interesting & dark history with ‘Hanging Corner’ being of historical importance.  Lancaster was named the Hanging Town, as more people were sent to the Gallows here than anywhere else outside of London!

Race Information

Race registrations, the race finish line and the final presentation take place inside the Castle courtyards.  The race starts just a short walk from Lancaster Castle at Lancaster Football club’s Giant Axe ground.

The race route is mostly rural taking in the Luneside countryside and will be relatively flat so suitable for new runners and personal best hunters!  But… aware this race has a tough final 1/4 mile finish uphill back to the Castle!
