Trail Running in Swinley Forest Berkshire

Based in the beautiful Swinley Forest in Berkshire, and we pride ourselves as being a friendly, relaxed and fun running club, without being overly structured or competitive. The emphasis is always to enjoy the fun and freedom of running the forest trails rather than how fast we can run. 

We meet Sunday mornings and Friday evenings.  There are 2 separate runs on a Sunday setting off at 09:30, an easy 5 km run, and a more advanced 10 km run, both meeting back at the lookout for a post run coffee. Our Friday evening run sets off at 18:00 and is normally 5-8 km. During the summer months we enjoy dusky evening runs, whilst during the winter months (Oct-Mar) we run in the hours of darkness using head torches to light the way.   

Each run will be led by an England Athletics (LiRF) accredited run leader, who will guide you around endless and undulating trails through forest and heathland. With over 11 sq km of forest trails to choose from a different route is chosen every week, incorporating occasional stops along the way to regroup and catch a breath.  More details here...
