Running trails at Whinlatter Forest

Stunning scenery, a higher calorie burn, and increased mental well-being are just a few things to look forward to when you run in England's only true mountain forest.

Supported by Sport England and using National Lottery funding, the 5km and 10km marked trails here at Whinlatter make running through the forest more accessible, so you can feel confident to just hit the trails and enjoy all the benefits of being active outdoors.
