A stunning off road, multi terrain course that will transverse over a mixture of broadleaved woodland, scrub and open grassland with a small section of the route on the Bristol to Bath Railway Path. The course is flat/undulating with a few small cheeky hills thrown in and will be suitable for all standards of runner. All this whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings of the Warmley Forest Park, a former extensive clay quarry. The whole area has now matured into a thriving Wildlife area. You will also take in beautiful ponds and the Siston brook rushes alongside the Eastern boundary. The Forest Park is a public open space that can also easily accessed by bike, car and bus.
