Get inspired to run in the nation's forests

Our new way-marked network of running trails from 1km to 10km have been designed for beginners and seasoned runners.

Search for dedicated running routes below, or run on any of our walking routes.

Why run in the forest?

  • It's traffic free - get in the zone without worrying about the roads
  • Breathe fresh natural air - the trees keep you cool in summer and protected in winter
  • It's a better workout - your body works harder than on a treadmill
  • The view - take in the colours, scents and sounds as you go, beats the gym!

Supported by Sport England and using National Lottery funding our running routes are accessible and safe, so hit the trails and find your freedom!
