COVID-19 We are following current UK Government guidelines in delivering trail running trips. They are conducted in line with England Athletics guidelines to ensure your safety. In addition, you will need to carry with you (not wear) on all of our trips until further notice a face covering. At Run the Wild we have appointed Simon James as COVID-19 Officer. Within this role a risk assessment has been completed, and will be updated, for all UK events with specific regard to COVID-19 and a COVID-19 action plan put in place, in addition to our standard risk assessments. Any updates to Government Guidance will be monitored, and procedures adjusted accordingly, and a COVID-19 secure environment will be maintained. All clients are asked to confirm they are exhibiting no symptoms prior to coming to a Run the Wild event. All guides carry a mask and hand sanitisers, and have been briefed on COVID-19 protocols in case of an emergency situation where the administering of first aid is required. What we ask of you, the client: We require you to bring with you a face covering (this will be checked). They are purely for emergencies, and not for running in, for example if you needed to receive first aid. Please do not attend the event if it requires you to break any government guidelines, this includes, but is not limited to, travel to/from the event, breaking self-isolation or household isolation either due to illness or recent arrival from abroad. It’s extremely important that if you are feeling unwell or display any symptoms either for COVID or any illness you must not attend! Good hygiene must be practised at all times. This includes a strict policy of no spitting while running. THE RUN THE WILD COVID-19 REFUND GUARANTEE: At Run the Wild we are passionate about getting you out onto the trails. If you book directly with us on any of our trips and if Run the Wild have to cancel or postpone a trip due to COVID-19 government restrictions you can either postpone your place free of charge or receive a full refund less booking fees (this equates to around 97% refund). This is in addition to our Terms & Conditions.
All abilities are catered for, so whether you want to push your speed or prefer a more relaxed morning out you will be well looked after. As with all Run the Wild events, you will be grouped with similar ability runners and each group led by one of our experienced Run Leaders.
The distance will be around 13km. The run starts at the incredible location of Ashridge House, set in the heart of beautiful woodland and we guide you on a route to see the best of the bluebells. There is also a cafe at the end for hot refreshments and snacks. The event will finish around 11am.
Run Leader, with you every step of the way!

How to Get There
This event is open to all abilities. We group participants by ability and allocate a Run Leader. We recommend for this event that you are able to run 5km non-stop. It’s a great event for those new to trail running as well as veterans. As with all our events we are inclusive and match abilities of runners to ensure maximum fun!
The event is inclusive to new trail runners and also those who are regularly out on the trails. We will group participants by their ability but you need to have run 5km non-stop in the past (doesn't need to have been a race time). We will cater for the following paces: 7-9km, 9-11km, 11km+ an hour on the flat or road. We stop a few times on the route to re-group and also to cover off knowledge tips. First time trail runners welcome!
