Background

This one day running adventure based in the Chiltern Hills is all about you discovering what Run the Wild is all about! You will be running a distance of around 13 miles over the undulating chalk hills and through local woods, led by local English Athletics qualified Run Leaders. It's an easily accessible event, just 30 minutes North West of London by rail or road. All abilities are catered for, so whether you are a new to trail running, just looking to get some miles in an inspiring location or training for a race distance then this is the event for you. Along the way you will experience our famous hospitality and enjoy a well stocked refreshment point. As with all Run the Wild events, it's a team event so you will be grouped with similar ability runners and led by one of our Run Leaders who will route find and set the pace for you. We walk anything steep and it's a good opportunity to get some trail running tips from our leaders along the way. This is a great event for you to run in the beautiful Chilterns, meet the RtW team and experience a running adventure that gives you a taster of our multiday routes.

We hope to see you there!
