10km running route at Cannock Chase

10km running route

On the 10km route runners will have the opportunity to explore the wider forest and enjoy the natural peace and tranquillity of Cannock Chase Forest.

The route switches between flat, well surfaced trails and rougher, looser forest tracks.

As with the shorter routes, the 10km follows the Fairoak & Sherbrook trails before heading into the heart of the forest where you will pass through areas of particular interest including the model railway crossing. Just before the half way mark you’ll start a long, gradual incline which will last for just over a kilometre along loose, testing terrain so pace yourself accordingly!
