Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum

Help protect the arboretum as you run

If you've bought your 10K ticket and would like to make a big difference, why not fundraise as an individual for the arboretum?

Create your fundraising JustGiving page

Money fundraised from the 10K goes right back to the arboretum wherever it's needed most, protecting this beautiful place for future generations.

Your donations will fund essential initiatives, from nurturing saplings to preserving centuries-old giants.

With a route that takes you past champion trees and some of the rarest tree species in the world Westonbirt 10K certainly isn't your average run!

Get your trainers on and Run for the Trees! Check out our training and fundraising guides below.

Running at Westonbirt Arboretum

I see running as an essential part of life as it helps me feel mentally balanced. I hope that the money I raise helps support the projects at Westonbirt that help mental health and wellbeing. It’s well known that being outside with nature is good for us!

I'm running for Westonbirt because I want to help maintain this beautiful environment for everyone to experience, it's a haven for many families and pets, including Peanut and Jelly (my pups) and we have to work together to maintain it's beauty.
