Trail Run For Women
Run the Wild prides itself for being inclusive to all runners. Over the years we have met hundreds of runners of assorted ages, gender, size, and of course ability. We love sharing our passion for running, and watching others discover its benefits for the body and mind and also the freedom it offers. Our reward comes from watching runners catch the trail running bug, and achieving goals they didn't think possible either because of concerns about ability or confidence.
We offer a safe and supporting environment for women to step into exercise and feel great, and because we have found that sometimes women can feel shy and nervous about joining new running clubs, we felt it important to launch our first women’s only run last winter. Due to its success and popularity we are continuing to offer regular women's only trail runs, great for regular runners and also those who are new to trails. Each event will follow a different route, providing new running adventures for those who have already taken part previously.
So, join us for a ladies only 8km guided run through the beautiful woods and open ridgelines of the Chiltern Hills! Along the way you will learn trail running techniques and explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, famous for its use in filming locations.
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.

Trail running instruction
8km of inspiring trails!
WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED
Personal insurance (recommended)
Travel to / from Musette's Aldbury
Food & Drinks
We will start each run at the Musette Cafe, based in the quintessentially English village of Aldbury.
All our female guides are all experienced run leaders who not only route find and set the pace, but will also enlighten you on the surrounding area.
When not running they can often be seen sipping coffee at Musette's. We will end the run back at the cafe which is a great place to get a post run coffee, smoothie or a freshly cooked trail runners' breakfast!
You will need to arrange your own transport to the start of the adventure in Aldbury, but there are regular trains from London Euston to Tring Station which take around 40 minutes and is only a short walk to the meeting point.
There is also an onsite free car park should you prefer to drive. Accommodation is available nearby, please get in touch if you would like any recommendations.
All abilities are catered for, particularly those that are concerned about pace and ability and maybe have never run on trails before. 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. We walk anything too steep and it's a good opportunity to get some trail running tips from our leaders along the way.
The event will start at 8.45am, at the Musette's, Aldbury which has free parking and is walking distance from Tring Station with direct train connections to London Euston. The event will finish around 10.30am (full details in your booking pack).
