The Chiltern Hills provide beautiful trails to explore on this 30 km trail running adventure! It's a great opportunity to discover new paths and learn trail running techniques in a fun and supportive environment.
The trails we take wind through beautiful woodland, hidden routes, grass covered ridgelines and through quaint villages. The day is fully guided and we take care of everything. Along the way you will experience our famous hospitality and enjoy a well stocked refreshment point. 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 Run Leaders who will route find and set the pace for you. We walk anything steep and it's a good opportunity to get some trail running tips from our leaders along the way.
The event is not far from London, providing easy access by rail or road and a great way to escape and find your wild! As featured in Runner's World - Top 9 Best Running Holidays in the UK 2019. Part of the 2-day Chiltern Hills Challenge weekend.
