5km running route at Salcey Forest

5km running route

A short run along the forest road means a solid, flat surface underfoot to start that later leads onto a beautiful tree lined avenue.

This route will also take you past the Elephant Pond - named after the giant creatures that used to bathe in the pond during the Second World War. For your final stretch you are back on the forest road with the opportunity for a fast finish.
