Trail running at Lyme Park
Next run: Tuesday 27 February 2024
About our group
The Lyme Runners group was set up in partnership with Lyme Park in October 2015, helping the property to deliver sport to the public.
The Group meets twice a week on a Tuesday and a Thursday morning in the main car park, from 10-11am and it is a mixed ability group.
Our runs are all off-road so we would expect you to be wearing trail-shoes to help avoid slipping over (road running shoes have very little grip). We usually run 3-4 miles (roughly 5-6km) over the undulating terrain that we have at Lyme. As much of the park is on high ground and exposed we strongly recommend you bring a waterproof jacket with you.
We have a 'group' ethos where we look out for each other and make sure everyone gets something out of each run that we undertake. Depending on numbers we will divide into groups so that everyone gets something out of the run.
Booking via the RunTogether app is essential to ensure we have enough run leaders for the number of people in the group i.e. we cannot accommodate on-the-day arrivals unfortunately.
We run within the 1400 acres of parkland that surrounds Lyme Park, with a mixture of Moorland, Woodland and meadow terrain. We take advantage of the predominantly traffic-free conditions and enjoy running in a beautiful location.
Note due to the uneven terrain, ladder stiles on route and narrow sections we are not able to accommodate running buggies. Whilst we don't mind if you want to run with your dog, they must be on a short lead at all times for the safety of other runners in the group.
Usually following the run we return to the cafe in the Timber Yard at Lyme Park for a social coffee/tea and catch up.
