Event details

-

Be a forest runner and join us in our new running series across the nation’s forests this autumn.

Whether you are a 5k Forest Runner or a 10k Forest Runner, choose your challenge and enjoy a run in some beautiful surroundings.

The routes follow flat, stoned forest roads giving a solid surface underfoot. The 10k route starts on the same road as the 5k route, before heading to the outskirts of the forest where you might catch a glimpse of the many butterfly species present in Salcey. This route involves two road crossings so please take care.

The 5k route takes you past the Elephant Pond - named after the giant creatures that used to bathe in the pond during the Second World War. As you approach the finish line, you'll recognise that you're back to where you started, perfect for a fast finish.

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.
