Running Routes at Westonbirt Arboretum
Running outdoors makes your body work harder and helps you to get in better shape compared to treadmill running. Plus, it's a much nicer view than the back wall of the gym!
So whether you're trying to escape the hustle and bustle of city streets and sweaty gyms, or looking for somewhere a little more rugged to challenge yourself, our running routes are the perfect place to find your rhythm.
Supported by Sport England and using National Lottery funding, the marked running trails make your run through the forest more accessible, so you can feel confident to hit the trails and enjoy all the benefits of being active outdoors.
Download our dedicated routes map here and follow the coloured arrows around the arboretum or run it your own way and mix and match our routes to suit you. Combine our 0.9km and 4.1km routes to give yourself a perfect 5km route. Want to run further? Take in both sides of Westonbirt by combining our 4.1km & 3km routes.
Please note dogs aren't allowed in the Old Arboretum.
