Chilterns Winter 10k
This is a great 10k to complete before the Christmas season starts! Step onto great trails and escape urban life. We follow some great paths which take in the hills and woodlands of the Chilterns, all led by local expert trail running guides. Along the way we incorporate fun downhill paths banked by trees and head through a nature reserve to where we hope to see wildlife including local deer. As with all our events we want you to learn about the wild as well as become a better runner, so we are on hand to offer technical guidance.
All abilities are catered for, so whether you are a new to trail running, just looking to get some miles in an inspiring location, or smash out trails like a pro, you're in good hands. 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 knows the route and will 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 as well as meet other trail runners. The run will start in Tring.

We are following current UK Government guidelines in delivering trail running events. They are conducted in line with England Athletics guidelines to ensure your safety. In addition, you will need to carry with you (not wear) until further notice a vapour resistant face mask and carry personal alcohol-based hand gel, as well as adhering to current social distancing guidelines.
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 UK events are held in the outdoors with no requirement to be indoors at any time. All clients are asked to confirm they are exhibiting no symptoms prior to coming to a Run the Wild event, and are required to carry a vapour resistant face mask (checked on arrival), and hand gel. All participant contact details are recorded which can be shared upon request with the Government’s Test and Trace initiative. 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. In line with England Athletics guidance, and the provision of a COVID-19 secure environment, groups will be limited to a maximum of 12 clients per run leader, or when relevant will reflect any changes to the guidelines. We typically operate at a much lower guide to client ratio than this limit. These precautions will enable the continued safe running of our trips.
What we ask of you, the client:
- Please do not attend if you are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms, or if someone in your household is and requires you to self-isolate.
- Ensure you carry a vapour resistant face mask or face covering and personal alcohol-based hand gel, as you run.
- Please remain in your vehicle until you are asked to meet your run guide.
- Adhere to current social distancing guidelines before, during and after your run, with regards to other runners, and other trails users and members of the public.
- Good hygiene must be practised at all times. This includes bringing your own hand sanitiser, keeping the touching of gates to an absolute minimum, and a strict policy of no spitting while running.
- Please check your local government guidelines in regards to travel, public transport and overnight accommodation.
