Welcome back to this fantastic local race!



Please read carefully. 


Following on from our last post cancelling our original date of 18th September while the nation is observing a 10 day period of mourning over the loss of HM Queen Elizabeth II, I am now happy to announce that we have managed to secure a new date of Sunday 16th October. The race will however, be at a later time in the day, with the junior race starting at 4pm and the main event, 5 mile race at 4.30pm.  


We hope that you are still able to join us on this new date and time. Please see below for your options.

Thank you all for your understanding in this unprecedented time.  We hope to see you all on 16th October.

Like many other races, after a two year hiatus thanks to Covid, the Essity Prudhoe Miners five mile road race returns this year.

The race is England Athletics licensed (licence number 2022-44078) and will take place on closed roads on Sunday 16th October at 4:30pm.

Entry is open to anyone aged 15 or over. There is also a separate 2km race for 7–14 year-olds which will start before the 5-mile race at 04:00pm. Both races will start and finish on Eastwoods Road, Prudhoe (NE42 5DT). They will include some upward flat sections - as anyone from Prudhoe will tell you, it’s impossible to go for a run without hills round here!

EA affiliated adults get the usual £2 discount off the adult race entry fee, and there will be prizes for the first three male and female adult finishers, including a fabulous first prize from one of our Race Sponsors, Run Unlimited.  They will be providing the first male and first female finishers with a pair of Scott road shoes. 

There will also be prizes for the first male and female in the junior race. 

All finishers will receive a commemorative gift (spoiler alert – it isn’t a t-shirt this year) and there is a rumour that there will be cake for all finishers too.
