berkshire trail running

Trail running in Swinley Forest, Berkshire RG12 7QW.

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 freedom of running the forest trails rather than how fast we can run. 

We meet on Sunday mornings and Friday evenings...

SUNDAY: We usually offer two runs at two levels, an intermediate run of 5K and a longer more advanced run of 10K.  On the second Sunday of every month we increase the distance slightly to 8K and 15K as a step towards the longer distances. We are also intoducing the occasional location run away from Swinley forest for members only. 

FRIDAY: 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 the winter months (Oct-Mar) offer a completely different experience as you will be running in the hours of darkness and requires.   

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.

NOTE: Due to  car parking issues we are currently meeting at Gt Hollands recreation ground, South Rd, Bracknell, Wokingham RG40 3EE, for some of our runs.
