Sunderland Harriers and Silksworth Sports Complex-stage the Northern 12-stage and 6-stage road relays for the fifth time, with the last occasion in 2007.There is little change to the previous course around the traffic-free sports complex paths. The start and finish is on the track and, apart from the start, you only enter the track when you finish your leg. There are two significant short hills, just before the end of the lap and when you leave the track. Club tents will be sited on the inside of the track and surrounding area. You can see much of the course on the hills at the back of the track.
There is limited parking available at the complex. An overflow car park is available at the tennis centre. You must not park on the highway or paths surrounding the complex (Silksworth Lane, North Moor Lane) or you are liable to be booked by the police.
Officials and council staff will only be allowed to park outside the ski slope changing rooms. Car parks are just a couple of minutes walking distance to the course. The A19 is about ten minutes away and the A1M about 20 minutes.
