Trail Running Escapes Burnham Deepdale

After a discussion with the venue yesterday, we are super pleased to say that, as things stand we will still be going ahead with our Trail Running Escapes Burnham Deepdale event next year.

Join ESCAPE trails from the 16th to the 18th April 2021, for a weekend of trail running on the beautiful Norfolk coast. We will be based at the fantastic Deepdale Backpackers and Camping, where we will have direct access to the Norfolk Coast Path, as well as many other trails and footpaths perfect to run on.

All runs are led by experienced trail runners Neil Staveley and Hannah Westen, who have a great knowledge of the Norfolk trails. Both are fully qualified UK Athletics Run Leaders, and will be on hand all weekend to answer any questions you may have about trail running. All runs over the weekend will be run at a social pace, with plenty of opportunities to take breaks for snacking, taking photos, and enjoying the views. No one will be left behind, these runs are about exploring, not racing.

What’s included –

  • Accommodation for the weekend.
  • Breakfast.
  • Fully guided trail runs.
  • Tips and advice all weekend.
  • Trail snacks and nutrition supplied by Mountain Fuel.
  • Free photos.
  • Evening talks about all things trail running.

We will be adding new things as we get closer to the event.

We know that due to the current situation, it is a difficult time to commit to events. But you can book your place with a deposit of £40, which you will get back if we have to cancel the weekend due to Covid-19. If we have to cancel after the final balance has been paid, you will be given the option to either receive a full refund, or defer the place to a future date.We are really looking forward to this event, and if you would like to join us, you can secure your place by heading to the event page

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.
