Trail Running in Swinley Forest Berkshire
Based in the beautiful Swinley Forest, erkshire, 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.
Sunday mornings 09:30, choose from an intermediate 5K, or a more advanced 10K. Both runs are circular routes meeting back at the lookout for a post run coffee.
Friday evening 18:00, this is normally a 5-8 km intermediate circular run, in the summer months we enjoy dusky evenings, whilst during the winter months (Oct-Mar) these become night runs, head torches will be required.
The Run: Every run is led by one of our England Athletics accredited run leaders (LiRF), who will lead you on a pre planned route through the tracks and trails of Swinley Forest. We pace all our runs according to the groups capabilities, and as some of the trails include a few hills we always ensure that we make the occasional stop to catch a breath and regroup. Faster runners are free to run ahead and loop back as necessary. More details here...
