The Sunderland 10km and 1/2 Marathon
The Stadium of Light, Sunderland
Sunday 4th May 2014
Starting from the Bob Stokoe statue at the Stadium of Light, the 10Km route almost follows the same course as last year, there is a change around Mowbray Park and through Roker Park. The 1/2 Marathon route is brand new and appears to be quite fast.
These events form part of the 'Club Challenge', with the prize being a trip for 4 with accommodation to the Dublin 1/2 Marathon in August....we've won the challenge for the last few years, lets continue that trend!!
