BACKGROUND

In this new series we will be focussing on some key elements that will help you transition from road running to trail running. We believe trail running is for ALL and is a great way to de-stress and get some endorphins flowing, but we also recognise that it can be a little challenging for those who haven't a lot of experience on trails, or just want to get some top tips. All our guides are qualified and experienced runners and provide a fun, supportive, informative and safe environment for you to become a more confident trail runner. As with all our events we are inclusive and match abilities of runners to ensure maximum fun!

We will start each run at the Musette Cafe, based in the quintessentially English village of Aldbury. We will end the run back at the cafe which is a great place to get a post run refreshment! Both events will follow a different route, the first 6km and the second 8km, they will also have a different focus. These will include running form, balance and stability, as well as endurance. By booking both events (using the booking form below) you can take advantage of the discounted price of £25.

We have safe COVID-19 working practices in place which ensure social distancing and maximum numbers are relevant to current government guidelines, currently 1 guide per 5 clients. Your safety and enjoyment are our priority.

The event is easily accessible, just 40 minutes North West of London by rail or road and there is free on-site parking for all runners. 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 will route find and 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.

ACCOMMODATION & TRANSPORT

You will need to arrange your own transport to the start of the adventure in Aldbury, but there are regular trains from London Euston to Tring Station which take around 40 minutes and is only a short walk to the meeting point. There is also an onsite free car park should you prefer to drive. Accommodation is available nearby, please get in touch if you would like any recommendations.

ABILITY

We will group participants by their ability but you need to be able to run 4km non-stop. It's a great event for those new to trail running as well as those who want to become better on the trails! The Lead Runner will route find and as all with our running adventures you will be expected to run as part of the team. First time trail runners welcome!
