Be a forest runner and join us in our running series across the nation’s forests this autumn. The profits from Forest Runner sales help us grow, shape and care for your local forest, now and for future generations.
Whether you are a 5k or a 10k Forest Runner, choose your challenge and enjoy a run in some beautiful surroundings.
Explore the stunning forest at Hamsterley with our waymarked running trails where you'll pass some of our art pieces and beautiful views out over the valley.
Forest Runner events are managed in partnership with Events of the North.
Join in the conversation in the run up to the event using #ForestRunner.
Tell us about your visit to the forest and complete a short survey for the chance to win some great prizes. It only takes a few minutes to complete and then your email address will be entered into a draw to win a £200 Cotswold Outdoor voucher, with five runners-up receiving an annual Forestry England membership to their local forest. Terms and conditions apply.
