A delightful urban escape that leads you to a canopied woodland trail that heads under the noisy, bustling A3 into the alluring Riverside Park Nature Reserve. The meandering and beautiful River Wey becomes your friend on this enchanting and essentially flat trail run. One final ascent towards the finish will keep you honest.
The former Bramley & Wonersh railway station is the start of this rewarding three section, multi-terrain route. The pan flat surfaced disused railway line will get you into a good rhythm. Next, the serenity of the River Wey. Flat too! There is a sting in the tail with one steep ascent along the Fox Way and on through Bramley Golf Club. No ticket required.
The town centre is no distance away, yet, on this, our longest of the SixPack Challenge routes, we serve up a pastoral symphony of varied trails and vistas. The serene Shalford Water Meadow, adjacent to the stunning River Wey, gives way to the bucolic delights of the Loseley Estate before your return along the North Downs Way. Another rendezvous with the River Wey brings you home.
Some gorgeous Guildford doorstep-discovery amidst the heathland habitat of Whitmoor Common. Follow the boardwalk across the marshes, discover the secret pond and enjoy this varied multi-terrain delight. The route is largely flat with one gentle ascent to elevate you and your emotions. Woodland wonder and a pub next door as you finish. Rewards aplenty.
Set within the heart of the Surrey Hills, Blackheath Forest is a trail runners delight. Extensive woodland sections share the honours with some more open sandy vistas and, mainly, gentle elevations on this SixPack exploration. We’ve used some of the main trails, including part of the signed Fox Way, hence the route name. We think you might well be dancing with delight at the end of the run too!
You’ll definitely be on a high with a route that starts atop the stunning Chantry Woods. Early spectacular views await before a long and extended descent takes you down onto the Pilgrim’s Way. Scenic woodland trails escort you gently uphill before a more challenging ascent towards St Martha’s Hill. It will be worth it! Incredible views and a rewarding final section to the finish.
