Epsom Runners

Epsom provides some of the best running routes. As well as plenty of hilly routes, there are off-road options on Epsom Common, Horton Country Park and on Epsom Downs. There are also plenty of smaller parks such as Roseberry Park, Long Grove Park and Court Recreation Ground.

The area around Horton Lane is ideal for road running. The surface is good and although it is by a main road, there is not much traffic and few pedestrians. It also leads nicely on to Horton Country park. We have a couple of suggestions for routes here


There are a few local parkruns around. For those that don't know, parkrun is a free, weekly, volunteer-led 5k time run for all abilities. All you need to run is a barcode which you can get by registering on their web site.
