Off road running - locations? (near london if possible)

Given a lot of material about cross country running in the off season - who has been doing this and can anyone recommend some nice trails to start.

If possible then places near London would be a good start but I'm sure other people from different locations would be interested to hear your favorite runs


  • Swinley Forest would be a good start, just off the m3 near Bagshot, plenty there to keep you busy. I hope you like hills Beautiful place to run or mtb for that matter.

    PM me if you decide to go I can let you know a few different trails.

    Perfect location - my office is just a few miles up the A329M so this is spot on, PM incoming!

    Epping forest, east end of the central line. You can easily knock up 20 miles on forest trails or even further if you want to investigate the single track! I live in Epping so it's pretty much the only place I run and plenty of hills too!
