About this run route

Start / Finish

Heaton Park – Lakeside Car Park

The Philips Park 3-2-1 route comprises of three separate easy access, accurately marked and enjoyable routes of varying distances. All three routes are set within the safe surroundings of the park using a variety of main paths and off road tracks. All routes start and finish in the same place on the path leading to the Lakeside Car Park.

Route 3 ventures across all sides of the park, heading up towards the Bowling Green’s using the main paths within the park and a fairly long and steady climb. The route then takes in some of the parks woodland area following narrow woodland paths which can get muddy but heading mainly downhill. The paths then become more compact underfoot, going past the band stand and following the stream towards the Southern play area and then picking up route two heading towards the Golf Centre cap park and back. This route is challenging with a mixture of road and off road tracks and some steep climbs.

We always advise running with a partner or a group as a great way of motivation as well as safety so why not bring along a jogging partner to enjoy the Heaton Park 3-2-1, alternatively get involved with our Heaton Park Run England group.

Please note:

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.
