We host a Wimpole Estate parkrun
event every Saturday, so if you want a short 5km run across the park with a likeminded, friendly bunch of runners, then register with parkrun and just turn up at 9am every Saturday.
Wimpole Estate junior parkrun
is 2km run at 10am every Sunday for children aged between four and 14. They are open to all, are free, and are safe and easy to take part in.
Wimpole Estate 3-2-1
Wimpole Estate 3-2-1 is part of Run England’s project which aims to provide a range of marked out running or jogging routes across the country that anyone can have a go at.
Introduction to running
If you are completely new to running, looking to ease yourself back into some gentle exercise or training for a Parkrun or Race for Life, this is the perfect group for you! Join our qualified Running Fitness instructors to gradually build your fitness and confidence in running.
Local rides are guided by friendly British Cycling Ride Leaders along scenic planned routes. With different levels, there’s something for everyone – whether you’re building your confidence or already comfortable on a bike and looking for a challenge.
Nordic walking course
Join qualified British Nordic Walking instructor Mandy Coar for an hour long Nordic walking four week course to master the basics to then be able to competently Nordic walk on your own or with a group.
Wimpole Night Run
The Night Run is about having fun, being social and exploring the outdoors. Whether you're a walker, first-time runner, experienced off-roader or even a family looking for adventure, this event will have something for you.
You'll be able to choose from our Explorer route (1-3km) or our Adventurer route (6-9km). It is totally traffic-free, mostly on paths and tracks and if you'd rather walk than run, you're more than welcome.
