10k Tees Barrage Route

The terrain is all on tarmac, mainly flat with a few slight inclines, taking in some fantastic iconic landmarks along the way. The course is well marked out with directional arrows and marshals on all key points. There will be a lead cyclist to guide the start of the race. There will also be a sweep first aid cyclist at the back. There is a water station situated halfway round the course. The finish is located near the start next to the university on the south side of the river.

Pass under Newport Bridge to use the ramp up onto the bridge to cross the river Tees. After about 300m follow the footpath to the right and loop around back under the bridge to follow the North Shore path back towards the White Water Course.

Follow the path along the river past the Portrack  Marsh Nature Reserve to the White Water Course. Continue past the Tees Barrage and the Teesside Water Sports Centre and follow the path under the Infinity and Princess Diana Bridges.

Continue along the Riverside until you reach the Millennium Bridge. Use the ramp up to the bridge and cross back to the south shore. Take a left a Columbia Drive past Dunedin House and back to the riverside path.

Once back under Princess Diana Bridge the route turns right and follow the inland waterways. You will see the replica HM Bark Endeavour ship moored on the north shore before crossing a small bridge to follow the canal back on the opposite side.

Once back on the rivers edge head back under the Infinity Bridge. With the Tees Barrage back in sight it’s a short dash to the finish line to collect your finishers goody-bag.
