Routes at Lyme

Our group runs

We arrange our runs throughout the park, depending on weather conditions and the state of the trails.  Our core runs are usually about 4 miles (6km) in length over hilly terrain although depending on size of group and number of run leaders available we may offer a slightly longer route (5-6 miles) in addition (these will be advertised on the Lyme Runners closed Facebook group (you’ll be invited to join it once you’ve been out with us).

The routes we are planning over the next few weeks are as follows:
