Welwyn Trail / Cross-country Running Group – free and regular adult group sessions!

Experience and enjoy off-road trail and cross-country running (the new ‘hot’ fitness exercise) with licenced UK Athletics (UKA) Endurance Running Coach!

Regular group sessions for Beginner through to Advanced runners, from 5k to 30k+. Every session is free and there are no membership fees!

Run off-road on trails, bridleways and farmland tracks around the Welwyn and Welwyn Garden City areas. Weekend mornings or weekday evenings (with headtorch, if necessary), running off-road is exhilarating, challenging, and offers multiple opportunities to experience different terrain, all with less impact on joints than on tarmac. It’s also very social! Routes take in the scenic countryside of this part of Hertfordshire. Join us for a fantastic off-road experience – no maps or GPS needed!

All levels of runner female or male, beginner or seasoned competitor – welcome. Our focus is on a variety of environments, running techniques and, of course, fitness development!

Running off-road develops strength and agility, all whilst minimising the impact that normally occurs from constantly running on pavements and roads. Our runs are across undulating terrain, away from traffic and noise!

Please wear ‘trail running’ shoes (Autumn through to early Spring predominantly) to ensure optimum grip and stability, clothing appropriate to weather conditions, and bring some water (belt attachment is optimum). Occasionally we will run a short way on tarmac to get to and from, and between, the tracks.

During Autumn and Winter months there is a weekday evening trail run through woodland and across farmland tracks. This is an exhilarating running experience, so please bring your headtorch.

Group sessions start and finish in: Welwyn, Stanborough Park, or Panshanger Park.

Please take a look at “Our Runs” on the Welwyn Trail Running website, register, and book onto a session. Any questions, please contact Heathley, your Group Leader. Personal, 1-1 private coaching sessions also available, on request.

Welwyn Trail Running is part of Run Together, affiliated with England Athletics.

We look forward to seeing you on the trails!
