Santa Dash – 2.5Kilometres

This course goes across some of the public footpaths over the fields in a loop starting and finishing at the Park Gate.

5 Miles

Starting at the Park Gate Inn, the route takes you across the beautiful Dodford countryside, into the valley before entering the spectacular scenery of Nutnells Woods. Looping around the route heads over some quiet Dodford lanes and back into the valley up into the fields, down Fockbury Mill Lane and back to the Park Gate pub for a well deserved drink!


10 Miles

Again starting at the Park Gate Inn, this route tracks the 5 mile course for around 4 miles but then turns left out of Nutnells Woods into more breathtaking scenery in the Chaddesley Woods nature reserve. The route is trickily undulating until turning back and heading towards Dordale. Next up is another beautiful wooded location, this time in Pepper Woods where a gentle incline will test tired legs before a fast sprint back down into Dordale will get you back to the Inn for the party
