ESCAPE trails’ First Birthday

On May 19th ESCAPE trails is one year old, so to celebrate we had organised an event at Whitlingham Country Park which unfortunately given the current situation we have had to cancel, so instead we are encouraging you to run your own distance anywhere you want. This can be in your house, in your garden, on the road, on the trails, use you imagination, but please, please be sensible and don’t put yourself or anyone else at risk, and follow the current government guidelines for social distancing.

This is a completely free event, all we ask is that you get a ticket so we can send you updates etc. We know these are hard time financially for a lot of you but if you would like to make a donation instead of an entry fee, we will be raising funds for NHS Charities Together, which I think we can all agree is an absolutely deserving charity especially given what the NHS are doing to keep us all alive at the moment. You can donate at

We may not be able to run together in person, but we can still run together in spirit, so please tag us and share your photos or videos, again use your imagination but please be sensible, and don’t forget to join the ESCAPE trails Strava club so we can see what you’ve been doing to help us celebrate. We will also be announcing more plans and possible giveaways as we get closer to the event. You can find a link to the event page here

Thank you so much for your support over the past year it really does mean the world to us

Don’t just take our word for it

  • positive review  I just wanted to say a big thank you to Neil and Hannah, for my intro to trail running at West Harling Woods. I am new to running, but am drawn to running off road, what a great location to try it out in. The hosts were very knowledgeable, I learned a lot about equipment, techniques and warming up and down and had fun too! Thanks guys, I will definitely be joining you for a guided run soon.

  • positive review  I absolutely loved the Intro to Trail Running at Harling Woods this morning. Neil and Hannah shared their knowledge from what kit you need to hill trail running. I even learned some new stretches at the end that I will be introducing regularly. The forest was beautiful and the pace was social so all abilities were included. Everyone had a big grin on their faces and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Escape Trails is perfectly named. After the crazy fortnight I have just had I really did feel I had escaped for a few hours. I feel physically and mentally energised. Thank you Neil and Hannah, I look forward to joining you again soon 😀
