Course Details

Both routes are on a mixture of forest tracks and trails with a few undulations along the way. The start and finish will be at the foot of Old Pale Hill in our events area. There are several species of mature tree along the routes, and you should also listen out for a variety of birdsong as you make your way around the forest.

You'll set off past the trail header before crossing the railway bridge and heading towards the family picnic area, where the routes will split.

The 5k route turns left to link up with our Whitemoor Trail. Heading back toward the visitor centre, you will pass Black Lake and cross the railway line again before the last stretch sees you re-join the main trails and back along the trail header towards the finish line.

The 10k route, after a slight detour, takes you around Blakemere Moss before linking up with the 5k runners to follow the Whitemoor Trail and head towards the last stretch back to the visitor centre.
