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 3 is 2.1 miles long running along the outer paths within the park. It follows route 2 but then continues straight ahead to Gib Lane which is a secluded section through woodland and along a wide dirt track which brings you out by the Wythenshawe Rd/Princess Parkway junction. The route then picks up a narrow dirt path which eventually joins up with route 2 then route 1. As the route is completely flat but includes some tricky sections underfoot it would be a good challenge for a beginner. If you’re looking for something further still, then try route 1 and 3 together which would make up 5km!
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.
