Gedling Parkrun



The course is 5000m (5K) long. The course is in Gedling Country Park, Nottingham. The course is run on a mixture of gravel trail paths and tarmac paths. Some sections of the course may accumulate mud, leaves and puddles after rain. Dependent on availability, marshals will be at key sections of the course, or signs will be in place.

Course Description

An undulating single lap figure of eight course set in the grounds of Gedling Country Park. The course is clearly marked with directional arrows. The start is located close to the Spring Lane car park. From the start runners head East for 300 metres before turning right at a junction of paths, adjacent to the finish area, and heading in a Southerly direction downhill across the park. After approx. another 300 metres runners then turn left at the next junction of paths to begin the climb up Wicketwood Hill and then run in an anti-clockwise direction around the solar farm. Once runners return to the downhill path next to the finish area, they turn left to follow it again downhill across the park for approx. 300 metres. This time at the junction runners turn right and then take the third turning on the left to follow the ‘main bright’ route clockwise up and round back past the start point and head straight on to the finish.


There are toilets located close to the start, adjacent to the play area. These are housed in a temporary blue block. There are plans for a visitors centre and café in the near future. Parking is limited, so if possible, please consider car sharing, public transport, cycling, walking or even running to the event!
