All of the Tyne Trail Ultra Races follow the River Tyne Trail from Source to Sea as established by our charity partner ‘Daft as a Brush’ as a defined walking route. The events will give entrants a full experience of all that the North East of England has to offer from remote moors, stunning valleys and historic sites from pre-Roman developments to the great industrial revolution and modern sites of Tyneside. An annual event, the Tyne Trail Ultra alternates each year between the North Tyne & South Tyne Trails.
