Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Newcastle running route, or want to share your favorite Newcastle running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Start at Adamstown Railway Station. Run along the Fernleigh Loop Cycleway as far as Burwood Road. Run back the way you came. Beautiful bush setting, very quiet, bellbirds everywhere to be heard. There is a great restored train tunnel you run through. This is about a 6-7 kilometers run. There are no drink stations. Be warned - the run out is mostly uphill (not steep but relentless). Obviously the run back is much easier. You know you are in the city but it doesn't feel like it.
