RUNNERS wanting to push themselves further and take up a new challenge will be able to line-up for a new monthly 10K parkland run being launched at Hanbury Hall.

The National Trust property already plays host to a free weekly parkrun at 9am every Saturday and the new one will appeal to those wanting to run longer distances.

The first 10k at Hanbury Hall will take place at 9am on September 25 and the following ones will be on the last Sunday of every month.

The National Trust has created a series of 10k runs at its venues across the UK and Hanbury Hall is one of the chosen venues.

The Trust10 takes runners through beautiful parkland with breath-taking views of the Worcestershire countryside.

It covers three laps of the park which makes it perfect for everyone from the experienced runner looking for a new challenge to beginners just starting out.

Sian Goodman, Hanbury Hall’s visitor experience manager, said: “We’re really excited to be taking on the Trust10 here at Hanbury Hall; it will be a great opportunity for people to have a regular goal each month, as well as a chance to explore this special place.

“We want as many people to enjoy this new trail as possible, so as well as hosting the Trust10 each month, the route itself will be open to all runners throughout the year for free.”

The Stableyard Cafe will be open early serving hot and cold refreshments, bacon sandwiches and lots of freshly baked cakes.

Those interested in the event or volunteering should email to find out more.
