Event details

The popular Westonbirt 10K is returning to the National Arboretum on Saturday 22 May 2021, 4pm, as part of Forestry England's Active Forests Programme.

One of the most beautiful running routes in the UK, the national arboretum is the perfect location for sporting events, and runners taking part in this race will be able to take in the world renowned tree collection at one of its most beautiful times of year, with spring blooms and flowering trees providing the backdrop to this popular 10K.

Perfect for those looking for a challenge in the new year, or veteran runners looking to achieve a new personal best, the course takes participants through the picturesque avenues of the Old Arboretum and into the peaceful tranquillity of the ancient Silk Wood, on largely flat terrain and hard paths.  

All those taking part in the race will be able to make a big difference to their fitness and wellbeing, but also to the nation’s heritage and environment. Every penny from the 10K goes back into supporting the nation’s woods and forests, and protecting these beautiful places for future generations.

With a route that takes you past champion trees and some of the rarest species in the world Westonbirt 10K certainly isn't your average run!

Get your trainers on and run for the trees!
