Guided or Unguided?

All the prices quoted include a fully qualified guide or as we refer to them 'Lead Runner'. In the UK that means that the Lead Runners are England Athletics recognised, usually at coach level. In Europe the guides are International Mountain Leaders, a legal requirement. All our guides know the routes well, are experienced trail runners with a passion for wild places as well as the sport, and also really nice, helpful people! If you prefer to have an unguided trip that is no problem, just in touch for a quote, we can provide full logistic support or none at all, we tailor the holiday to what you want.

"I wanted to thank you for the amazing experience last weekend. For me the whole idea of exploring places, without being under any time pressure was fantastic. To have the whole day to run, talk, walk, munch, laugh, cry and make friends was extremely special and like nothing I have experienced before. I was proud of us all... Thank you for making this such a memorable weekend..." Nicky - Chiltern Hills Challenge, May 2015

"The Intro to the the Alps trail running adventure in Chamonix was a fantastic weekend away - a tough physical challenge in stunning surroundings. Run the Wild helped us every step of the way, got us running some technically challenging trails and made sure it was a fun weekend all round. Sign up!" Matt - Intro to the Alps, August 2014

"The trip exceeded all my expectations, a fantastic introduction to trail running and a great way to spend a weekend away with friends." Katherine - Intro to the Alps, August 2014

"This was a great experience and would definitely recommend this to everyone as an introduction to trail running. Something I will now do regularly." Chin - Intro to the Alps, August 2014 

"I went on the introduction to the Alps trip at the beginning of August with three friends and we had a spectacular time. The Spa hotel is lovely and the Jacuzzi and Sauna were massively appeciated as the running is obviously hard on your body even if you are quite fit. I was nervous about how I would handle the altitude and to be honest I did struggle on the first day but Emily was an excellent guide and she kept me going – thank goodness as it was one of the most satisfying runs I’ve ever had. By day two we had all acclimatised and we had a really good solid run over all sorts of terrain with a couple pitstops to eat wild strawberries and take in the scenery while we stretched. The scenery is exquisite! Another nice touch is that Simon brings you delicious snacks for lunch and everything tastes a hundred times better because you deserve it – especially the Nutella filled crepes. I highly recommend going on this run as Emily and Simon are fantastic guides and hosts and they are both totally passionate about exercising outdoors. Best of all it was a really special bonding experience for all of us as friends. I can’t wait to go on another trip." Victoria - Intro to the Alps, August 2014

"It was a fab weekend and superbly run... Chris did a sterling job getting me through." Keith - Chiltern Hills Challenge, May 2014

"Just wanted to thank you for a great weekend... It genuinely was a pleasure to run through such lovely scenery... the route was perfect - the right amount of hills, mud, views and variety to create a great challenge and keep things interesting. It was great to be able to run without having to worry about the clock and just take in the views and chat to the people we were out with. I thought Chris was the perfect guide... the whole weekend was organised very well." John - Chiltern Hills Challenge, May 2014
