Happy Earth Day

As an outdoor sports business the natural environment is massively important to us, it’s our playground, and our selling point, but more than that it’s our home, and it’s the only one we’ve got 🌎

As a business we are aware that we’re not perfect, and all of our actions have an impact on the environment, but we are trying to do our best to ensure that we limit this impact, and that this beautiful planet is still around even when we are not anymore.

These are just a few of the things we do as a business to help limit our impact –

– we partner with ReRun to collect unused sportswear

– if we buy new we only buy from ethical companies like Patagonia

– we pick up any rubbish we see on the trails

– we organise plogging events

– we encourage our customers to car share if possible

– we support organisations like Protect Our Winters

– we try to teach our customers to think about their impact on the natural environment

I think we can all agree that the past few weeks have proven that we need nature more than it needs us, so today on Earth Day we encourage you all to celebrate this beautiful home of ours, and think about how we can help to protect our playground for future generations

Don’t just take our word for it

    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 😀

    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.
