New partnership with Forestry England
07 January 2022
RunTogether are pleased to announce a new partnership with Forestry England.
Research shows that spending just 2 hours a week in nature significantly improves our health and satisfaction. Forests are a haven to escape and are especially restorative environments. The sounds, sights and smells you experience while you run through the forest play a role in reducing stress by stimulating the senses.
Supported by Sport England and using National Lottery funding, Forestry England's waymarked trails make running through the forest more accessible, so you can feel confident to hit the trails and enjoy all the benefits of being active outdoors. Whether you're trying to escape the hustle and bustle of city streets and sweaty gyms, or are looking for somewhere more rugged to challenge yourself, Forestry England’s waymarked running trails are the perfect place to find your rhythm.
From 1km to 10km route lengths, their running trails have been designed with both beginners and seasoned runners in mind. They provide an opportunity to run on safe, off-road, traffic-free trails in beautiful forest locations.
And you can search for Forestry England trails right here from the RunTogether website, plus participate in other initiatives such as their annual running series - with 5k and 10k event distances hosted at 12 forest centres across England.
