Run to explore the outdoors with the National Trust
15 April 2015
As the days get longer and sunnier, there's nothing better than getting out for a walk, jog or run to explore some of the beautiful open spaces the English countryside has to offer.
The National Trust looks after some of the most impressive open spaces in the UK and works closely with Run England to offer opportunities for you to sample them.
Whatever your age, ability, size or shape the National Trust's running groups and 3-2-1 routes are there for you to join in with. There are registered groups at Kingston Lacy in Dorest, Morden Hall in London, Woolacombe in North Devon, Gibside in Gateshead, Nostell Priory near Wakefield (pictured), Attingham Park in Shropshire, Lyme Park in Manchester and Leigh Woods in Bristol. These groups all welcome beginners.
3-2-1 routes have been set up at Kingston Lacy, Morden Hall, Styal Estate near Manchester, Saltram in Plymouth, Clumber Park near Worksop in Nottinghamshire, Lyme Park in Cheshire and Leigh Woods near Bristol.
The National Trust also hosts several parkruns at Gibside, Kingston Lacy, Morden Hall Park, Woolacombe, Nostell Priory, Attingham Park, Lyme Park and Leigh Woods - all held at 9am on Saturday mornings.
Find out more about opportunities to go walking, jogging or running at National Trust sites at nationaltrust.org.uk/running.
