Parking will be in the Errington Woods public car park.

The entrance to the car park is at grid reference NZ 617201 and the What3words reference is ///diggers.lazy.irritate.  The nearest postcode is TS11 8EE.

Click on the link to see a map.  You can zoom in (and, optionally, switch to Satellite mode) to see the details of the final approach to the event.  You can also get directions if you specify your starting location.

If coming from the west, go past the Wilton chemical works and continue on the A174 towards Saltburn.  The event will be signed from the roundabout at grid reference NZ 609223.  Turn right (i.e. south) and go up the hill and across a crossroads.  The entrance to the car park is on the left, just before the road takes a sharp right at the top of the hill.


Errington Woods is a well established wood with a substantial path / track network, steep-sided slopes and many varied features.

There are many mountain bike tracks throughout the woods and new ones can appear at short notice, so some may not be mapped.

Benches, carved sculptures and mountain bike jumps are not mapped.

Full leg cover is required.  Apart from anything else, there are many areas of brambles!

This wood is used by many local people from the Marske area, and runners should take this into consideration whilst taking part in the event.  Please be particularly aware of horse riders (some of whom may be children) and mountain bikers.

In the event of inclement weather waterproofs may be made compulsory.  Please come prepared.
