  • Please try and do the runs when you expect the redways and paths to be quieter, and remember there may be dogs, cyclists and other park users out and about
  • There are a few road crossings (all quiet roads) but you MUST be aware for your own safety at all times and be considerate to other people

Follow a voice guided tour, including the encouraging reminder when you’re halfway there. RunGo also tracks your runs stats like time, pace, distance, elevation and estimated finish time.
what3words is a really simple way to talk about location. They have assigned each 3m square in the world a unique 3-word address that will never change. For example: ‘filled.count.soap’ marks the exact entrance to what3words’ London headquarters. People use what3words to find their tents at festivals, navigate to B&Bs, and to direct emergency services to the right place. We have used what3words to share with you the exact start locations for each route. Please download the app – it is great for sharing your location when meeting up with people, but also really useful in emergencies and for navigation. iPhone users: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/what3words/id657878530 Android users: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.what3words.android&hl=en_GB
