If you’re bored of just running laps around your local park, it might be a good idea to explore some of the great trails of the UK. These trails can be hundreds of miles long so you can just choose a particular section that you want to run along. They are generally all well signposted and maintained meaning you have no excuse to not get out there and enjoy running through the UK’s beautiful landscape.
High Peak Trail
The High Peak Trail is a 17.5 mile long route in the Lake District. It is along the route of an old railway line, meaning the path is never particularly steep. As well as this, the route offers stunning views of the Derbyshire Dales.
South Downs Way
This is a 100 mile long trail running from Eastbourne Sussex to Winchester, Hampshire. It provides a route along The Seven Sisters, allowing you to get incredible views of the iconic white chalk cliffs as well as the famous Beachy Head. Whilst this route has some fairly steep inclines, the terrain is generally quite kind along the whole trail.
This trail covers just over 100 miles from Chipping Campden, Worcestershire to Bath, Somerset. The northern end has larger hills if you want a more challenging climb with fantastic views over the Cotswold scenery. In addition to this, there are ruins of old forts that are dotted throughout this area.
South West Coast Path
This trail is 630 miles long from Minehead in Somerset all the way to Poole, Dorset. It covers an extensive area of coastline with some tough terrain and often difficult inclines. However, if you are up for the challenge you will be able to experience some of the greatest coastal views in the UK and possibly even get to see some dolphins.
Coed y Brenin
This route is found to the south of Snowdonia National Park with a number of different running trails that follow the river valleys of the forest. This forested run will allow you to feel part of nature as you rack up the miles.
Our running socks here at STRIDIES were specially designed for maximum comfort when running. Seam3Toe technology, breathable fabric, Comfit Arch and reinforced heel and toe areas make them perfect for you to wear when you run. Not only that, but whenever we sell a pair of socks we donate a pair to homeless shelters across the UK, meaning that buying socks from us does not only help you set a new personal best, but it helps those in need too!
