Discover Bradford and District’s GreenLine Mile routes
One of Active Bradford’s member organisations, Bradford Metropolitan District Council, has developed a number of mile long routes in partnership with Bradford Athletics Network and England Athletics. The circular routes in Bradford and Keighley have been set up to make it easier for more people to walk, jog or run around the city.
Bradford is the first city in the country to install these accessible one-mile loops which are part of a national initiative to help people to be active in urban areas.
The routes have been designed to be easy to follow, take in iconic sights and be generally accessible to everyone – whether you are local, work nearby or are just visiting.
- Route 1: City Park and the University – Following part of the well established Bradford City Runs route this course goes along Thornton Road before going around the University of Bradford campus before returning to the iconic Alhambra Theatre.
- Route 2: Little Germany – A route that winds itself through the beautiful architecture of this historic part of the city centre, next to Bradford Cathedral.
- Route 3: Manningham Lane – Around Bradford City’s Valley Parade football stadium, this route links Manningham Lane, Thorncliffe Road and Midland Road passing the nursery and children’s centre.
- Route 4: Myra Shay – Taking in the Myra Shay playing fields and linking the Lapage, Delius Bradford Moor and Byron schools.
- Route 5: Lund Park – A circular route around the fabulous historic Lund Park in Keighley.
- Route 6: Girlington – An active walk linking key locations in the area including the popular and friendly community park, West Park, with many facilities including fixed play, basketball court, crown green bowls and skate park.
The routes are marked out by distinctive green markers placed at regular intervals with signs placed at certain points around the loop.
So if you’re part of an exercise group with buggies, planning a dementia memory walk or simply want to get out into the fresh air on your lunch break, these pre-drawn routes have taken the hard work of planning away for you.
