About this run route

Start / Finish

Start on the wide path north of the Chipping Sodbury Rugby/Football Club car park.

The route is suitable for beginners and improvers alike.

The circular loop of the park is 1.7 km all of which is a mixture of flat and gentle inclines and declines on even paths, perfect for the absolute beginner.  Two laps of the park are 3.4k, the perfect distance for the improving runners. For those runners wanting a little more of a challenge, almost three complete laps makes up an accurately measured 5k route which is also the Saturday morning parkrun route. 

The route has been marked with 1km Run England 3-2-1 markers for training and timing purposes

Please be mindful of other park users and dogs off the lead.

The new extension to the existing path was completed in December 2013. This would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of the Chipping Sodbury Town Trust, who sourced funding and ensured the ground work was completed on schedule.

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.
