The Routes

Waterside

Waterside Wanderings 10K

Nene Park

Part of the Nene Park Trust, this stunning route explores the western side of the large country park, featuring the trails along the River Nene, around the main lakes, and across the magnificent stone Ferry Bridge.

Bluebell

Bluebell Boardwalk 7K

Ferry Meadows

Situated less than 3 miles east of the city centre, this large country park with varied landscapes, was established in the late 1970’s to provide somewhere beautiful, safe and unspoilt for residents to experience nature and the great outdoors. Our route explores the central area of meadows, lakes and woodlands. Special feature is the newish 750m Bluebell Boardwalk with non-slip decking along the river. You also run by the heron hide, houseboats and the Nene Valley railway, for added interest.

Urban

Urban Escape 7K

Werrington

Tucked into the residential township towards the north of the city, this flat nature reserve is a tranquillity of green space with a picturesque lake and free of traffic. A perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Highlight is the short underpass, which is cleverly painted with flora and fauna. The tree lined paths after the start and towards the end can inspire you to stride out.

Crowning Glory

Crowning Glory 5K

Farcet

Transformed from the old brick workings in the southern outskirts of the city, now a small country park with an abundance of wildlife, plants and lakes. A few little inclines and twist & turns from the past excavations make this an interesting route, coupled with circling around the deep fish filled brick pits, whose banks are lined with trees and reed beds. A gem of a countryside traffic free route to enjoy – you may even spot an otter!

Low Fen

Low Fen 7K

Yaxley

On the edge of The Fens, south of the city, this route is a hidden gem guiding you through a peaceful nature reserve 2.75 metres below sea level, the lowest land point in GB! You start by the famous Posts, one coming from the Crystal Palace in London, illustrating the sobering depth of peat shrinkage. The route guides you through forests of silver birch trees and by lakeside hides offering a peak into watery wildlife havens.

Special K

Special K 6K

Thorpe Meadows

Part of the Nene Park Trust Estate, this picturesque route explores the eastern area including the bouncy Weir Bridge, the Rowing Course and the Sculpture Park. The special feature allows you to get into your stride and race the rowers down the side of the 1K long rowing lake, or just watch them glide by!
