10 of the best places to run in the UK: readers' tips

From flowers along the Dee to the steepest public road in England – via painted ladies in Shrewsbury – readers share their favourite routes

The Kentmere Horseshoe sits just inside the Lake District national park and it is not for the faint-hearted – the hills are steep but the vistas are more than worth it. Away from the tourist traps, it can give you an enormous sense of serenity. Fell ponies can wander by and on some days you might not see a soul. The route includes numerous summits and the views into the valleys are hard to beat. The Kentmere Valley houses a reservoir, slate mines and the ruins of ancient iron age settlements, so there’s always something of interest to see. A great adventure.Christina Loveridge
