TNT - Temple Newsam Ten
February 13, 2019
St Theresa’s Athletic Club invites you to run a race that promises to be a spectacular event for the running community of West Yorkshire: the STAC TNT (Temple Newsam Ten Mile).
Staged in the beautiful grounds of the Temple Newsam Estate, discover 500 years of history with the magnificent country mansion set within 1500 acres of beautiful parkland. The course is mainly bridle and country paths (it could be muddy) covering areas of the estate that you wouldn’t normally see. There are stunning views of the 17th Century House and gardens designed and re-landscaped by Capability Brown. The course also takes in the nearby nature reserve, lakes and canals that form part of the Woodlesford navigation.
