This Spring Trails Half Marathon has been a popular fixture for over 30 years. Morphing from a road race around Colefoefod it is now a traffic free mixed terrain course following a wide circuit around the heart of the ancient Forest of Dean. Starting on a wide tarmac road you will run on the level for 1 mile before turning on to Forestry Trails and descending to the ponds at Cannop. The course then follows cycle routes along a series of repurposed tramways winding up and down through both ancient deciduous woods as well as modern forestry plantations. Fully marshalled by a friendly team of volunteers this is ideal for beginners as well as the more experienced runners wanting to get off road.
The start and finish are centred on the historic Speech House with a small race village and on-site free parking.
