Running is a great way to keep active and can be suitable for all levels of fitness. No matter your ability, we have routes that will take you weaving through the forests and fields of Hampshire's best countryside spots. Laces tied, playlist on and off you go. 


If you’re looking for a fun way to make friends and enjoy the countryside, then head to your nearest Parkrun. Every weekend, Parkrun events are held at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Royal Victoria Country Park, and Staunton Country Park. You can also check out other locations and records at Parkrun UK.

The route may be 5k, but there’s no time limit and everyone is welcome no matter your ability. Just register for the event online before turning up on the day, and you’re ready to run! If you don’t fancy running, feel free to walk, jog, spectate, or even volunteer. The most important thing is to enjoy getting active outside in nature.
