The Meanwood Valley Trail is referred to as the ‘green artery’ of Leeds and this tranquil and serene trail route will get your heart pumping for sure, with the sheer joy of experiencing this urban escape. Gently ascending on the outward section, you’ll earn you reward on the way back. Woodland and parkland trails throughout.
Sweet! We’ve managed to squeeze in a multi-terrain route with a bit of everything. Bramley Fall Woods offers up fascinating woodland trails, not all of which are flat. But the Leeds Liverpool canal is your friend and enjoy the opportunities to really get into your flow. We think you’ll enjoy taking a bite out of this SixPack Challenge route for sure!
A green getaway that will get you feeling on top of the world. Well, on top of the former Rothwell Colliery for sure. The flat out and back canal-side sections bookend a good gradual climb up within the country park complete with pond, sculpture and fitness trail. The summit view is summat special!
One of the biggest city parks in Europe, Roundhay Park plays host to a gorgeous trail exploration. Tranquil lakeside vistas merge with the woodland wonder of glorious, undulating trails as our meandering route shows off the very best of this flourishing green space just 3 miles from the city centre.
An ancient woodland laden with plentiful evidence of a fascinating industrial heritage, and where once the Middleton railway ran. Now you are the runner, tasked to sample the undulating delights of this regenerated park.
St Aiden’s Nature Reserve is a wonderful haven for wildlife and will welcome you to a wonderfully flat, multi-terrain route on what is the longest of the SixPack Challenge Leeds routes. Adjacent to the calming waters of the River Aire, the area has been transformed from an open-cast mine and has many excellently surfaced paths throughout.
