Places To Run In Yorkshire

Blake Waterson/ October 6, 2016/ Blog/ 0 comments

Yorkshire is a place full of the best-running trails in the United Kingdom. There are many places that you can go for a run in Yorkshire but there are some that are better than the others.

Trail running is usually divided into four areas. You can trail run in the South and West Yorkshire or go towards the beautiful East Yorkshire or the multiple trekked North.

We’ve been venturing out of Glusburn recently and checking out some good trails/routes. We’ve also been checking out some supplements from Focus Performance and we’re loving them (especially their Optimal Sport). Click here if you want to check them out.

If you have wanted to go for a good run, here are 4 places you can go to for a good trail run or a nice casual jog or walk.

Hebden Bridge

Located between Leeds and Manchester, Hebden Bridge is a good place for checking out and exploring different trails in the Calderdale area. It is a good starting point and it has a decent circular route that lets you take a good glance of the moorland tops and the valley. Moreover, other important places such as the Pennine Way and Pennine Bridleway are close to the town so you can mix both cultures and run while you are there.

Hebden Bridge is also home to running in the sense that there is a tradition there of running in the area within the 10-mile radius of the town. A full and complete round, Hebden Bridge makes one of the great places to run in Yorkshire.


Osmotherly can be accessed from A19. There are many different accommodations there as well as some great pubs where you can enjoy a decent menu or two. The place allows you to go for a decent run when over for the weekend. You can also enjoy a good lush wood that is full of bluebells.

Generally, the scenery there is breathtaking and some of the trails there allow you to take a fast run downhill.


Goathland has been an interesting choice as far as running is concerned. The place is located in the heart of North York Moors. What makes it such a good choice for running is that it has a great steam railway line passing through which you can’t help but watch with pleasure. Moreover, you can go for both shorter and longer runs while you are there. If you want to go for a longer run, you should try to catch the train at Whitby and run to the coast and back over the moors to Goathland.


Lastly, Reeth is a name you cannot forget when it comes to attractive places to run in Yorkshire. The place is centred on a grassy common and it is encircled by some handsome buildings that stay over the top of Calver, Fremlington Edge, and Harkerside.

You can enjoy some greenery, some decent routes to run from the village and more. In addition, the accommodation there is plenty so you can even choose to stay the night after a good run.

Yorkshire is a beautiful place and running there is a great experience. However, there are some tracks that are better than the others. Looking to find a good place to run in Yorkshire? Check out the four listed above.
