Whether it’s a parkrun, getting back into jogging or a family outdoors activity, we’ve lots going on at Lyme Park.


Every Saturday at 9am. Each week we're welcoming over 120 runners, walkers or joggers, their families, supporters and volunteers and everyone is enjoying the stunning parkland. Runners showing their bar code at the Timber Yard Café can benefit from a special meal deal of a tea or filter coffee and sausage or bacon sandwich for £5 from 9.30am - 10.30am. The free, weekly timed run is open to runners of all abilities.

Joggers groups

From Wednesday 9 April we welcome the return of our Wednesday evening Lyme Park Joggers group starting at 6.30pm. With the clocks going forward our friendly, qualified run leaders can help motivate you to spring into action and get fit for the summer.

Running in Lyme Park is an ideal place to take advantage of the lighter evenings and enjoy stunning views, see the deer and appreciate all of the seasonal spring growth and bloom. We have three groups per week, all aimed at adults starting out running or returning after a long absence who wish to build up their fitness and stamina towards running 5k.

Our joggers groups are fun, free and take place on Thursdays and Sundays at 9.30am and on Wednesday evening, 6.30pm. All groups meet at the Timber Yard and sessions last about an hour.

Family Xplorer activities

One for families. On the first Saturday of the month, 10am -12pm, families can have fun together exploring the park, finding the markers and completing the challenge. Using a simple map, you can be active in the outdoors, be closer to nature and learn new skills too.
