Using Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) as a training tool for ultramarathons has several advantages over relying solely on heart rate monitoring. Here are a few reasons why using RPE can be better for your training: While heart rate monitoring…
It’s been a great couple of months for ESCAPE trails coached athletes. Firstly Kim, who ran our 36 mile Spring Iceni Ultra, making it her first ever ultra Helen raced in the Lake District, finishing The Lap in 18 hours,…
I was contacted around a month ago by Sportlink to ask if I would give an honest review of the Brooks Cascadia 16 trail shoe, obviously being a complete shoe geek I jumped at the chance. I will start off…
With the most of the UK seeing a drop in temperature, and some parts seeing snow, now might be a great time to get off the pavements. Here in Norfolk the temperatures have been hovering around freezing, and although we…
A question we get asked a lot is ‘do I need trail shoes?’, and while generally you will be fine running the trails in Norfolk in road shoes, there are some points to consider why you may be better off…
This was a great experience. My first 10Km in a very very long time. Everyone made me extremely welcome and calmed my nerves. I will be back on a regular basis to run in great surroundings with this guided group who didn’t leave me behind, thank you.
29th October 10k run with Neil and Lin in Thetford Forest was brilliant. Well organised, relaxed with no time pressure a group of us ran in the autumn sunshine enjoying a varied trail of paths through the forest. A very friendly group with some first time 10k runners along with more experienced trail runners. I’ll be back for another run and will challenge myself to do the 16k next time. A great way to spend a Sunday morning. Thanks Escape Trails.
Myself and a friend ran the wroxham/Hoveton route. It was our first ever trail run and Neil and the other runners were so supportive and accommodating. We've already decided to book another in the near future.
Really enjoyed taking part in a guided run, was taken on a lovely route with some interesting information given on stops along the route. Run was relaxed and inclusive of pace. Friendly run leaders. Definitely will go again.
If you are thinking of booking and not sure it’s simple - just go for it! Neil and his team run excellent events and I’ve never left a single one without a big smile on my face. A great way to clear your mind from the real world, enjoy great company and learn from experienced coaches.
Have done a few runs with ESCAPE trails now, the most recent being a fantastic headtorch run through the Norfolk countryside.
Events are always fun, inclusive and great value.
We did a 10k guided run in Thetford Forest on Christmas Eve, lovely friendly and well organised run, nice easy pace, no one got left behind. Loved it, and highly recommend 👌
I really enjoyed the run. Nice gentle pace, very friendly and informative.
Great place to run and Neil was a great host and gave me some pointers to support my running
