Immerse yourself in changing scenery and run a challenging yet beautiful 10km
through each season at Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens.
Heritage Trail Series is made up of four 10km trail running events taking place in spring, summer, autumn and winter. They will be set in a beautiful rural location that doesn’t normally allow running to take place, offering an exclusive and unique running experience.
Our first event will take place at the stunning Leonardslee Gardens - a unique Grade I listed woodland and gardens offering beautiful lakes, sculptures, wildlife (incl.wallabies!), vineyards and a romantic Grade II listed house complete with restaurant.
The routes chosen for Heritage Trail Series at Leonardslee will be mainly off-road with the occasional road section. Underfoot, you’ll be mostly on hard packed, manicured trails making for a lovely running experience.
The Heritage Trail Series is not about serious racing or chasing PBs. Routes will be challenging but will be designed so as to explore the best parts of the venues.
SPRING: Sunday 24th March
Spring brings an explosion of colour and scent - from the majestic rhododendrons and azaleas to the towering magnolias and carpets of daffodils.
At every turn, you will find flowers in different colours and shapes - all against the backdrop of new leaves beginning to bud.
SUMMER: Sunday 9th June
Run in beautiful woodland gardens and see wildflowers, Emperor Dragonflies, colourful Damselflies, wallabies, deer and more.
See the later flowering Polar Bear Rhododendrons and sweet smelling Viscosum Azaleas. Run beneath peaceful canopies and over stunning fields.
AUTUMN: Sunday 20th October
Take in a myriad of Autumn colours, which will envelop the gardens on the 10k route and create incredible reflections in the lakes as you pass by.
Hundreds of varieties of trees will be ablaze with pinks, yellows, reds, and shades of bronze.
WINTER: Sunday 29th December
The deciduous trees take on a majestic appearance and the gardens become very peaceful.On a frosty morning you will see the magical mist over the lakes, which creates a mesmerising theatre as the light changes throughout the day.
