Urban Trails

London 8.9km / 6 miles

Finding running routes in urban areas may not be as hard as you think. Mountain runner Max Nicholls tells us how he trains for National and World Championships by finding routes in South London.

Family activities
A little Gem in London: Putney, Barnes to Chiswick Markets

London 5.1km / 3 miles

A small ponder along green lush woodlands, passing old oak trees and wide open spaces along south of the river where the pace is a bit slower and the wildlife from Jays to Woodpeckers awaits you around the corner.

A run with a twist - hunting posts in Hampstead Heath

London 6.7km / 4 miles

I really like going for muddy trail runs with the dog (much better than pounding the pavement), and like discovering new outdoor areas. Add a treasure-hunt style challenge and voilà, you’re orienteering. You don’t need any technical kit, it’s very affordable and there are events held most weekends in rural and urban areas, as well as dozens of fixed courses in forests and parks across Britain that are FREE. It’s one of the most fun ways to get outside for a few hours.
