One of the most beautiful running routes in the UK

The National Arboretum is the perfect location for sporting events, and runners taking part in this race will be able to take in the world renowned tree collection at one of its most beautiful times of year, with spring blooms and flowering trees providing the backdrop to this popular 10K.

As the Westonbirt 10K is such a special race to me, it seemed only natural to try and bring awareness of how donations support the arboretum and help connect people with trees. Julia Bartlett, Westonbirt Runner

Perfect for those looking for a challenge in the new year, or veteran runners looking to achieve a new personal best. The course takes participants through the picturesque avenues of the Old Arboretum and into the peaceful tranquillity of the ancient Silk Wood, on largely flat terrain and hard paths.

Can you help to protect the Arboretum?

All those taking part in the race will be able to make a big difference to their fitness and wellbeing, but also to the nation's heritage and environment. Money fundraised from the 10K goes right back to the arboretum wherever it's needed most, protecting this beautiful place for future generations.

I'm running for Westonbirt because I want to help maintain this beautiful environment for everyone to experience, it's a haven for many families and pets, including Peanut and Jelly (my pups) and we have to work together to maintain it's beauty. Marc Alexander, Westonbirt Runner

With a route that takes you past champion trees and some of the rarest species in the world Westonbirt 10K certainly isn't your average run!

Get your trainers on and Run for the Trees!
