Trail running in the Fynn Valley

The Fynn Valley, located just outside of the county town of Ipswich is an area of trails alongside the River Fynn. Surrounded by the picturesque villages of Tuddenham, Playford and Rushmere, the valley has something for runners of all abilities. This is will be a social run for all runners wanting to either get onto the trails for the first time, find some new routes to explore or just to enjoy a beautiful area of the Suffolk countryside. During the course of the morning we'll head out onto the trails for a 12km / 7 mile run where you'll be introduced to different trail running terrain, given tips and advice on finding routes, mastering technique and the best kit for the trails. All of our runs are now taking place under England Athletics guidance. Social Distancing and COVID-19 measures are in place. Find out more.
