The Routes


Park Life 5K

Upton Country Park, Poole

A delightful off-road 5km trail that lets you soak up all the sights the park has to offer, from sweeping views across Holes Bay to wildlife wetlands and natural woodlands. With a combination of gravel paths and off-road trail and minimal elevation gain you’ll have this route done in no time leaving more time to enjoy tea and homemade cake at the finish!


Head Over Huts 8K

Hengistbury Head

We think you will fall ‘head over huts’ in love with this route. A coastal scenic route that packs a punch with its 360 vistas as you climb up and around Hengistbury Head. With far reaching views across to the Isle of wight, Christchurch Priory & harbour and the New Forest and from no other vantage point along the coast you will see all 7 miles of the Bournemouth coastline that runs from Hegistbury Head to Sandbanks in Poole.


Seas To Summit 10K

Bournemouth Town Centre

Take on a tour of the town with this ‘Sea to Summit’ route. Heading out from the beach front the route takes you on a surprisingly scenic journey through the heart of the town centre via Bournemouth Gardens. The ‘summit’ is reached within Talbot Heath nature reserve where you then begin the fun return journey down through the historic gardens before a panoramic victory lap around Bournemouth Pier finishing back in front of the Observation Wheel.


King Of The Castle 6K

Highcliffe Castle

A hidden wonder of the Dorset coastline, Highcliffe Castle is your start and finish line. An adventurous trail of sorts that treats you to some spectacular views across the seafront, so don’t forget to look up! An entire traffic free running trail with a variety of underfoot conditions to keep you on your toes.


Heathland Discovery Trail 5K

Avon Heath Country Park

Even as one of the shortest routes in the SixPack Challenge we still think this one offers plenty of adventure and trail wonder delights. An undulating off-road route with sand and gravel sections, trail shoes are recommended as some sections can get a little muddy.


Canford Heath Round 8K

Canford Heath, Poole

An entirely off-road trail running route that will make you feel, at times, like you are in the middle of no-where. One of the largest heathlands in the UK, this 8km route is set in an area of 850 acre ‘wilderness’. One of the most undulating routes within this SixPack Challenge with mainly gravel & sandy conditions underfoot. Trail shoes are advised.
