From ancient woodland to wildflower blanketed meadows, lace up your trainers and explore the British countryside in 100 short runs.

Following on from the National Trust’s bestselling walks books, this has 100 short runs at NT properties and places around Britain. The routes travel through beautiful countryside of all kinds, from ancient woodland and meadows studded with wildflowers to rugged headlands with uninterrupted views of the sea.

The runs are ideal for beginners as well as experienced runners looking for a more relaxed route. They range from 1 to 10 miles, with the vast majority being 6 miles (10k) max. Information on terrain and facilities is included, as are interesting points of history and natural history to look out for.

The book also includes a section on training, gear and avoiding and dealing with injuries for beginners.
