BACKGROUND

The rolling hills and vales that surround the picturesque historical town of Berkhamsted set within the Chiltern Hills, provide a great location for one of our 10km trail running events. The route explores the woods and paths of the area, starting near to the castle ruins which once saw Henry II in residence, as well as some of the World War II practice trenches. Boost your running motivation by letting our running guides take you on a tour of the paths, giving trail running tips and explaining some fun local historical facts. 

The run will start near Berkhamsted train station and is within walking distance of the main town. The event is easily accessible 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 smash out trails like a pro, you're in good hands. 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 experienced Run Leaders who knows the route and will set the pace for you. We walk anything too steep and it's a good opportunity to get some trail running tips from our leaders along the way as well as meet other trail runners.

We operate a COVID secure environment that adheres to England Athletics and UK Government guidelines.

You will need to arrange your own transport to Berkhamsted Cricket Club for the start of the adventure which is only a few minutes walk from the main train station.
