About this run route

Start / Finish

Wendover Woods, Upper Icknield Way HP22 5NQ

Situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Chilterns, Wendover Woods is home to three running trails with picturesque views. Keep a look out for red kites as you run past the impressive Norway Spruce.

This route follows forest roads that can be stony in places and includes some steady inclines and declines long the way with a challenging hill climb just after the 2km mark. Look out for the Gruffalo sculpture before heading into the depths of the forest amongst the Norway Spruce and enjoy 3 beautiful viewpoints during your run.

We’ve also been improving the visitor facilities. The redevelopment is now complete, and the centre piece is our brand-new visitor hub building. You’ll find the new Wendover Woods Café and toilets here. Parking fees: up to 2 hours £2.70, up to 4 hours £5, over 4 hours £10.

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.
