About this run route

Start / Finish

All running routes at Salcey Forest start at the running map board. (what3words: pesky.curving.priced). The 3km and 5km route finish in the same place.

A short run along the forest access road means a solid, flat surface underfoot to start, that later leads onto a beautiful tree lined avenue. This route also takes you past the Elephant Pond – named after the giant creatures that used to bathe in the pond during the second world war. Then your final stretch, you are back on the forest road for the perfect opportunity for the fast finish.

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.
