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.

For holidays or multi-day trips we strongly recommend obtaining COVID cover. This should cover you in case you cannot attend due to testing positive and if you there are any last minute changes to travel restrictions and enforced quarantine. For all our other events we recommend you obtain event insurance to cover you in case you cannot attend.


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.

*For trips which include accommodation please note that last minute government enforced changes may still incur additional costs which are not refundable and therefore we strongly advise you to obtain insurance which includes COVID cover.

Run the Wild has provided covid-19 safety information for this event.

Organiser's Description

Every trail runner should know how to efficiently run in the dark! We will take you through the techniques of trail running at night, from looking at different types of head torches to how best to avoid trail furniture. We will help you master this exciting but often tricky facet of trail running. You will be led by qualified mountain trail running guides / UK Athletics coaches along country trails which wind through the Ashridge forest and open fields.

It's a great opportunity to get out running in a safe environment with a group of like-minded runners as well as learning along the way, especially if you are interested in multi-day adventures and ultraruns. It's possible we may also see some wildlife, including the fallow deer local to the area as well as owls and badgers. 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 there will be a few times we stop for briefings and instruction but arrive ready for a trail run! This is a new route so even if you've signed up before you're in for a great run!

How to Get There

Berkhamsted train station is just a few minutes’ walk away from the start. There are regular trains from London Euston (every 20 minutes) which take around 30 minutes. Parking is free. We recommend arriving already changed, and since there are no toilets on site, please plan accordingly. There are public toilets at the train station, a few minutes’ walk away.


You will be grouped with similar ability runners, led by one of our Run Leaders. We recommend you are able to run 10km. The trails are undulating and likely muddy but we will walk any steep uphill. Trail shoes are essential!
