Follow this link for an introduction to Virtual Running Routes.


The Start is where the footpath leaves the grounds of the Sainsbury's supermarket on Bishopton Road West, Stockton-on-Tees, just north of the NE corner of the supermarket building.  The postcode is TS19 0QB and the What3words reference is ///crust.itself.ballots.

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 put in your starting location.

You should be able to park in the Sainsbury's car park, but please check the notices indicating "customer parking" and some restrictions.

The Route

In the MapRunF app, Select Event and navigate to UK / Cleveland / Stockton / Newham Grange VTC Middle.

You can also view a printable image of the route map.


The route takes you through the Elm Tree estate (urban terrain) and into Newham Grange Park (parkland).  The area is fairly flat, although there is a small amount of climb.

Measured along straight lines between the checkpoints, the route is 3.7 km.  However, unless you can leap over tall buildings in a single bound, you'll actually run about 30% - 50% further than that.


You can access the results via the MapRun Console.  Open the menu (three horizontal lines at the top left hand corner of the window), select Leader Board and then filter by Stockton.


There are no public toilets in this area, so please make your own arrangements beforehand.  There are customer toilets in Sainsbury's.



Anyone under 16 years old should only do this Virtual Running Route if accompanied by an adult.
