Since this is a charitable event, our COVID policy is different to other events. If we are unable to run this event due to UK Government restrictions you will be automatically entered into a virtual event of the same distance for the planned date. All successful completions will receive a Run the Wild buff (free shipping to UK mainland). If you would prefer to receive a full refund (less booking fees) instead, then please write "full refund" on the booking form.

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.

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

Organiser's Description

We are excited about our 3rd Wild Christmas Charity Run! For 2021 we are pleased to announce that this year's charity will be The Hospice of St Francis who will receive all profits from this event.

The run is open to all abilities with a 2km route and an 8km guided trail run. We are encouraging runners to bring along other family members (this includes children and dogs!) by offering two distances and also a family ticket. You can either sign up as a family group, or individual tickets, just select an adult or child ticket with the appropriate distance. Our Run Leaders will be providing trail running tips and fun local info along the way.

Prize for best fancy dress will be awarded at the finish! However, fancy dress is optional for the event.

We will start and finish the run at the Tring Home Office, just a few minutes walk from Tring Station. We will have mince pies at the end and also a self-service cafe.

How to Get There

40 minutes North West of London with train links from Euston.

Tring train station is just 10 minutes walk away and also has a taxi rank.


There is an on-site free car park.


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 along the way. First time trail runners welcome! Experienced ones are too as all of our guides will be out on the trails!

We welcome any age children under 16yrs, as long as they are running with an accompanying adult. You can even bring your 4-legged friend, we just ask that all dogs are run in canicross equipment only, and are kept on lead at all times. We also have only a limited number of places for dogs, so please do let us know in the message section of the booking form that you would like to bring a dog. We will not accept dogs being run with a lead attached to their collar (if you have any questions on this, please drop us an email and our resident canicrossers can suggest equipment providers, and even places to try out kit).
