All of the Tyne Trail Ultra Events will 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.

 

Tyne Trail Ultra – North

The route starts at Deadwater, the source of the River North Tyne, close to the Scottish Border & follows its course, passing alongside the imposing Kielder reservoir down through the beautiful valley to the ‘Meeting of the Waters’. The route then follows the mighty river towards the industrial heritage of Tyneside and the ultra race finish in front of the historic Tynemouth Priory, a total distance of 150km (93 miles). There is also a shorter course available, the North Tyne Trail, which starts at the source at Deadwater, following the same course and finishing at the ‘Meeting of the Waters’, a total distance of 75km (45 miles).

 

Tyne Trail Ultra – South

The route starts at Tyne Head, the source of the River South Tyne, in the remote Cumbrian Pennines and travels through picturesque scenery to the ‘Meeting of the Waters’. The route then follows the mighty river towards industrial heritage of Tyneside and the ultra race finish at coastal South Shields. There is also the option of a shorter course, the South Tyne Trail, which starts at the source at Tyne Head, following the same course and finishing at the ‘Meeting of the Waters’.
