Sutton Tales and Trails Running Tour
Introducing Sutton Tales and Trails: a 6km off-road run between Sutton Parks Historic Pools.
Sutton Park is a truely magical place. As one of the largest Nature Reserves in the whole of Europe, it contains original Roman Roads, Ponies roaming freely and secret Wishing Wells only the rangers know about…
It’s been used for many purposes throughout the years including ITV filming, military training for both World Wars, and a Christmas Day tradition that isn’t forbidden, but certainly isn’t encouraged…
Join us for one of it’s less obscure purposes: exploration by foot. We’ll guide you along it’s trails on a walk or run, stopping at 3 of its 7 pools to tell you all of the parks best tales.
If you would prefer to walk this tour, please join us on Thurs 21 Sept 6.30pm-8.30pm

AccessThe event is an outdoor run, expect uneven pavements and off-road surfaces and crossing roads. Participants must be physically able to run. There are some steps and hills on the route.
Leisurely and enjoyable (with a chance to go for it at the end!). We stay together. No one gets left behind. If nervous about running this, please bear in mind that our tours contain frequent stops, so you will most likely be able to run further and faster with us than you would on your usual run.
