Run to explore the outdoors with the National Trust


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.
