Take on a Tough 10 run in the hidden forest within Roundhay Park you never knew was there.
No obstacles - this is the chance to take on 10k of steep, muddy trails and forge through streams that cross your path. With a new terrain around every corner, the real challenge is staying on your feet.
Think that a 10k event at Roundhay will be more like a walk in the park? You’ll be amazed at the steep, muddy hills, tricky woodland paths and rocky streams we have found to create this challenging course – this is not one for a personal best!
Here are some key statistics of the course terrain:
• 50% grass
• 30% paths and woodland trails
• 20% mud

By public transport
To plan your journey on public transport use the West Yorkshire Metro Journey Planner.
The race will start at 11am.
Please arrive 30 minutes before the start. You will need your running number that will be sent out to all entrants before the event.
The route at Roundhay Park is a mixture of grass, paths and woodland tracks - some of which cross through streams. Depending on weather conditions the course can get very muddy and slippy. Although this isn't a course to be setting a new personal best, trail shoes will help you maintain grip and get a faster time.
Please make sure you bring spare layers for the cold autumn weather and dress appropriately for the conditions.
The race will be chip timed using ResultsBase.
The timing chip is a blue loop that attaches to one of your trainers and will be sent out to entrants before the event.
