On the 10km route runners will have the opportunity to explore the wider forest and enjoy the natural peace and tranquillity of Cannock Chase Forest. The route will switch between flat, well surfaced trails and rougher, looser forest tracks.

As with the shorter routes the 10km follows the Fairoak trail before heading into the heart of the forest where you will pass through areas of particular interest including the model railway crossing. Just before the half way mark you’ll start a long, gradual incline which will last for just over a kilometre along loose, testing terrain so pace yourself accordingly!

All running routes at Cannock Chase Forest start and finish on the Fairoak Trail. This is located on the right hand side, just past the Go Ape Cabin.

The layout and usage of the marked 3-2-1 running routes is the responsibility of the local authority or further education establishment that purchases the route marking signs and usual health and safety and duty of care considerations should be followed in laying out open, even-surfaced, easy-to-follow, safe, accurate, well lit routes at all times - with the landowner’s permission. RunTogether will not provide materials with which to attach the markers.
