Start your running journey on this 1km route, perfect for beginners

A great introduction to running, this 1km route is on a good surface and circulates the Bedburn Beck from bridge to bridge.

The first half of the trail passes through a beautiful Scots Pine plantation which you will find dappled with sunlight on a bright morning. The second half of the trail runs closer to the burn offering great views of the flowing water.

The route is suitable for beginners, families and for training circuits. This trail is possible in road trainers, but trail shoes with a bit more grip are better.
