Organiser's Description

Our guided trail marathon is a great way to complete this iconic distance. With the support of a qualified guide, a team atmosphere and a well stocked checkpoint a long the way you’re in for a great day out on the trails. The run incorporates parts of the Ridgeway, one of Britain’s oldest routes, as well as lesser known paths and trails.

Our English Athletics qualified Run Leaders will offer tips on techniques, handle all aspects of navigation, as well as teach you about the local area. Hopefully, we will see some of the wildlife on the route including deer and red kites. We combine both technical single track trails, along with popular local routes, taking in Nature Reserves, and passing through the infamous Wendover Woods.

Along the way you will experience our famous hospitality and enjoy a well stocked refreshment point and be rewarded at the finish with a unique wooden Run the Wild finisher’s medal! The event will finish by around 3pm depending on your pace.

Take on this challenge and give your motivation a boost with this stunning guided trail run of 26.2 miles through the Chiltern Hills.
