Organiser's Description

Our forests are the perfect place to run, and this Autumn we are excited to bring you Forest Runner, a new series of 5k and 10k events, hosted at ten of our beautiful forests across England. Choose your challenge and enjoy some beautiful surroundings.

Salcey Forest is an oasis of nature and history. This magnificent woodland has many miles of ancient wood banks, building remains and ancient trees, with some of the veteran oaks believed to be up to 600 years old. This is a run through beautiful tree lined avenues and alongside scenic ponds.

All finishers will receive a goody bag which includes a fantastic Forest Runner neck tube. Beautiful solid oak trophies are up for grabs as well as some super prizes from our event sponsors, Merrell.

Not only that, you’re helping us to plant more trees; all profits go back into your local forest so that we can keep growing, shaping and caring for our forests across the nation.
Forest Runner events are managed in partnership with Events of the North.

Course Details

The routes follow flat, stoned forest roads giving a solid surface underfoot. The 10k route starts on the same road as the 5k route, before heading to the outskirts of the forest where you might catch a glimpse of the many butterfly species present in Salcey. This route involves two road crossings so please take care.

The 5k route takes you past the Elephant Pond - named after the giant creatures that used to bathe in the pond during the Second World War. As you approach the finish line, you'll recognise that you're back to where you started, perfect for a fast finish.
