The Loftus & Whitby Poultry Run has been held just before Christmas for over 25 years. It is a multi-terrain event and has built up a reputation as one of the friendliest and most fun events in the North East running calendar.

Loftus & Whitby Poultry Run

Loftus & Whitby Poultry Run sponsors

The run is approximately 8 miles and covers country lanes, bridleways, footpaths and muddy farmer's fields. The course is generally ascending for the first half of the race, with a steep climb at approximately half-way to the Boulby mast. It is then an exhilarating downhill run down to the finish where a mince pie and glass of wine awaits you! Sturdy trainers or trail shoes are recommended - there is too much road to suggest fell shoes. (Unless there is heavy snow as in 2009).

With costumes, a brass band and lots of cameraderie the Poultry Run is a great way to get your festive holiday off to a flying start. And who knows, with some generous prizes of Christmas fare - including the eponymous poultry - it could also be a handy way to stock your larder!
