Doorstep Marathon, Half and 10k


Sunderland Strollers are proud, once again, to present the Clazey’s Doorstep Events for 2017. The event will take place on Sunday the 3rd of December. For the second time we’ll be providing a Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K run to try and get as many people participating as possible. The events are not races but social runs which will demonstrate the capacity of running to generate substantial funds and provide a great day. On completion of your event you’ll be presented with a t-shirt along with a breakfast sandwich plus tea/coffee. For those aspiring to be true athletes, the bar will be open.

There are changing/shower facilities at the Yacht Club, you can also leave bags etc in a secure environment.

Please meet at the Sunderland Yacht Club at 0800 for the Marathon start, 0945 for the Half Marathon start and 1045 for the 10K start.  Water will be provided around the route (marathon and half marathon only), if you want gels or anything else please hand them to the marshals at the start and they will drop them ahead at the feed stations.

Please note that NO Half Marathon runners will be permitted to start with the Marathon runners.

The event is organised primarily to raise money for charity, this year we will be splitting the proceeds between Phoenix Cancer Unit at Sunderland Royal Hospital and Cancer Research UK. It’s also about getting people from all Clubs and no Clubs enjoying a Sunday morning run and raising a load of cash in the process.

Do please come and join us, over a beer we may even explain the origins of the event and why it means so much to the Club.

Entries are open here.

Route maps for the 3 events are below

      Hi Ben

      I’m not sure that the course is suitable for wheelchairs, it’s almost all on footpaths beside main roads. There are lots of road crossings and many do not have drop kerbs. We don’t have the luxury of closed roads I’m afraid.
