Forestry 100 Running series

trail runners in forest

Celebrate 100 years of forestry with a unique 10k running series through the forests of England.

Enter any individual 10km event, or conquer the nation's forests and complete the Forestry 100 Challenge and run 100km of forest trails across any ten events in the series.

Set in 16 of our beautiful forest sites around the country, each 10km trail has its own individual characteristics to keep you on your toes and give your senses a boost..

Will it be flat and fast, picturesque but punishing or steady with stunning scenery for your first 10k?
