Top 3 Places to Run

Posted on

Today I went for a run.  Nothing too unusual about that.  But I did think how incredible the views were - even more so than usual.  This morning I was lucky enough to run along the beaches of Bournemouth and Poole, around the Sandbanks Peninsula and over the Cliffs where you can see nothing but beautiful seaside scenery.  This made me think - is this my favourite place to run?  So of course I had to pick my 3 favourite places to run - what's yours?

1.  Bradgate Park, Leicestershire, England.

I was fortunate enough to grow up near here and did a lot of my youthful running in this park.  It was the home of Lady Jane Grey, famously Queen of England for 9 days. The ruins of the castle are still there surrounded by wild deer and fantastic scenery.  

Many famous Loughborough University athletes have used Bradgate Park for countless miles of training including Seb Coe, Paula Radcliffe and David Moorcroft.  

My favourite time of year to run here is an early summer morning.  It is a magical place. There are hills galore so it is challenging too.  An epic run!

2.  Poole and Bournemouth, Dorset, UK.

As mentioned in my introduction this is a special place to run - it simply has everything.  You can get the chain ferry across to Studland where the off road trails are endless and the scenery like nothing else. What I love most about running here is the variation.  You can run along the beach, over the cliffs and off road on the trails - all in one run! 

There is something different about a run by the sea, the air feels fresher and you find yourself away from it here - almost like meditation.

3.  London, UK. 

Lastly I just love a run along the river in London.  The history of England is along every step.  Running past the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and over Tower Bridge is just unreal every single time.  You never get bored of it! 

There are always plenty of runners on both sides of the river so you can always find people to say hi to.  My ideal run is from Battersea Park running down the river towards Big Ben and all the way down to Tower Bridge.  Head over here and back the other side of river going past the Eye and another view of the Houses of Parliament.  I have never ran anywhere and time gone so quickly.

We would love to hear your top 3 places to run - please let us know on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks and have a great week,

Healthy regards

Anthony said: 5 star

I've run a 50k ultra marathon in them. With the bits they covered worked brilliant. But need to be a bit longer in the legs. Chaffed on ina thighs where wasn't covered by Runderwear. Probably would of been fine if was a little longer

Helen Williamson said: Very comfortable

Very comfortable, fit well, stay put!

Bruce Craven said: Briefs fantastic

Bought the briefs based on the reviews I'd read and can happily say after a few runs already they are fantastic. Working exactly as intended. You really don't notice you have them on. Thoroughly recommend.
