This medium run route takes you on mixed hard and grass paths in a circular route in the Attingham Deer Park. The run is 2.5 km (1.6 miles) and starts from the Deer Park Bridge and is the second of three Repton run routes designed to build confidence running further. The route is way-marked for the majority of the way – this medium route is the green route. Dogs are welcome but must be on a lead.
