About this run route

Start / Finish

Athletics Track Car Park

The Wythenshawe Park 3-2-1 route comprises of three separate, marked and enjoyable routes of varying distances. The park is completely flat and all routes use a variety of terrain including, dirt tracks, woodland tracks, gravel, and tarmac. Route 1 would be the most suitable for push chairs but does include a bumpy section of path from the start and a section of dirt path along Wythenshawe road into the finish. Parking can be found at the Athletics track when open or there is ample parking within the park itself.

Route 2 is 1.6 miles long and follows route 1 at the beginning but then crosses the main path in the park, over a bridge along a dirt path at first, which can get waterlogged and muddy! The path then turns into loose gravel before turning left along a tarmac path, past Wythenshawe Hall, back out of the park by Wythenshawe Road, along a dirt track and then picking up route 1 back into the finish. Again, this route would be suitable for a complete beginner as a next challenge after completing route 1!

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.
