Ecclesall Woods is the largest ancient semi-natural woodland in South Yorkshire and home to a delightful woodland exploration. The route title was inspired by the gentle Limb Brook that vies for your early attention along mostly excellent paths beneath the beautiful forest canopy. This route offers a beautiful run amidst babbling brooks and rustling leaves but it also offers a fairly tough undulating challenge.
The Porter Brook Trail offers up a truly gorgeous sliver of wonderous woodland, babbling brooks and heritage. The first half is gently uphill throughout, but in a comfortable manner that will allow you to take in the verdant surrounds. Heading up and past the recently renovated Forge Dam area, we turn you back along a parallel trail where both you and nature will be able to flow together. Serene scenes aplenty!
Good news. The location of this lovely route is no longer home to the Coisley Hill Sewage Works! Designated a local nature reserve in 1999, the whole area is criss-crossed with paths and wonderful running trails. Full of variety and with some waterside sections and some good views, this is one you’ll love. As you finish, we say, enjoy the sweet smell of success.
Once home to the famous, Orgreave coal mining site, Waverley Lakes is a transformative regeneration project that now offers you a rewarding trail running experience. The route has two distinct sections, either side of the River Rother. Lakeside vistas are never far away and plenty of sections that will get you into your rhythm.
To the south of Sheffield and in the heart of the Moss Valley, this route has fishing lakes, stunning woodland trails, grassy open fields, a local pub and the beautiful River Moss. It is also home to the Seldom Seen 15-metre-high Engine House, a scheduled ancient monument. Possibly named because of its concealed location, others suggest it was haunted, but the ghost was seldom seen! Don’t miss it as the building seems to appear from nowhere.
Our 10K SixPack route has it all. This route offers meandering trails within lovely woodland, shimmering lakeside vistas and even a step back into history along a disused railway line. A rather challenging hill rewards you with panoramic views across the lake and nature reserve. Oh, there’s also a couple of on-site cafés to visit too. It’s the longest route of your challenge, but no bother at all.
