Running is a great way to keep fit, stay healthy, relieve stress and experience new places. The Good Run Guide is your companion to the great running to be found in some of the most scenic locations of England and Wales. Run through the stately grounds of Chatsworth in the Peak District; traverse Hadrian's Wall on the Scottish Border and visit the breath-taking castles of coastal Northumberland. Explore coastal coves in the north Cornwall; summit Pen-y-ghent in the Yorkshire Dales or escape the hustle and bustle of the City along the banks of the Thames. Experienced runners Louise Piears and Andy Bickerstaff, two of the founders of the Good Run Guide, the UK's leading independent running website, have hand-picked 40 of their favourite runs. Ranging in length from 3.4 to 10.7 miles (5.4 to 17.2 kilometres), there are routes for runners of all ability and fitness levels, on a range of surfaces. Each run features details of the run distance, the flat equivalent distance, difficulty, hilliness, climb rate, terrain and other useful information so you know exactly what you're undertaking before you set off.

There is also a bespoke map, annotated with route descriptions and key route features, to aid navigation.

Andy Bickerstaff started running after a discussion involving increasing waistlines in his late 20's. He caught the bug immediately and has been running seriously for the last 20 years. After spending a couple of years churning out 10k's and half marathons he discovered cross-country and had found his niche - the joys of off-road running where the clock is not so important. Andy loves exploring the countryside and running on softer surfaces, preferably with a sprinkling of hills and usually with a smile on his face and a cheery wave to all and sundry. The Good Run Guide website and this guidebook are great ways for Andy to indulge his love of running through the countryside and share his passion for exploring lesser known areas of the UK with other runners. Louise Piears started running in 1997, a year after her first child Charlotte was born, mainly to get fit and to lose baby weight. With brother Andy's encouragement she had soon improved enough to enter a local fun run, joined Ranelagh Harriers and, like many others, quickly found that making time for running and racing had become a way of life. Although taking a short break during pregnancy with her second child, Daniel, she was soon out running again, taking part in countless fun runs and races, anything from 5km road runs, to hilly cross country to marathons, with a couple of ultra run/walks thrown in. Louise particularly likes to run off road with her border collie cross, Bello, and explore new areas, hence the idea for the Good Run Guide was born - a source of route guides specifically researched for runners.
