5km Ellerburn running route

This route is a relatively steady circular running route that is used by parkrun every Saturday morning. You’ll be running on stoned forest roads and gravelled paths that pass through some of the oldest areas of forest – planted back in 1921.

Take in the short loop around the open space of the wood yard before crossing the tranquil waters of Dalby beck and returning along the Low Dalby valley. It’s a beautiful run and a good way to get to know Dalby.
