A two-day trail running adventure with The Chiltern Hills as the incredible backdrop. Everything is taken care of - meaning you can leave your busy life behind, set your heart and mind free and focus on your running.
Leave Tring station at around 9am as a small team through the country footpaths towards Bledlow. The local English Athletics qualified Run Leaders will show you the way, so you can enjoy the scenery, focus on your running and style. The path winds along a quiet trail through deep woods, grassy ridges and steep hills as well as through hamlets mainly seen in period dramas.
18 miles later and a few hills behind you, it’s time to get to the accommodation for a hot shower, a few drinks and dinner. Unlike races, there's a keen social aspect to the weekend. There will be plenty of time to chat about your running past and ambitions with your team members. Inspirational films will be shown in the evening.
Following a good night sleep in a comfortable bed and a hot breakfast, you’ll be ready to take on the second day where we follow a different route back through Chiltern Hills. The trails undulate along grassy outlooks, through beech and oak woods and through more tiny English villages. 36 miles completed and you will be rewarded with a technical t-shirt. The weekend adventure will finish at around 3pm.
Participants will be grouped by ability but you need to be able to be on your feet for around five hours per day and ideally have run close to a marathon distance in the past. Multi-day experience is helpful but not essential. You will be expected to carry essential kit but this will be a pretty light bag allowing you to run freely. The Lead Runner will route-find and you will be expected to run as part of the team.
Easy undulating trails at low levels of elevation and relatively small amounts of cumulative ascent (up to around 1000m) for runners at these paces:
