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…
Being the only(?) guided trail running specific business in Norfolk can be both a blessing, but also a bit of a curse. One of the questions I ask before most of our runs is “does anyone know what they’ve signed…
Join us for a 10k guided trail run through the beautiful surroundings of High Lodge in Thetford Forest. With it’s miles of woodland trails, High Lodge is a perfect location for trail running, and a perfect getaway from the stresses…
We get asked this question a lot, second only to shoe recommendations. The short answer to this is “No”. We don’t believe in too slow, everyone is welcome. Our events are about exploring the trails, in a relaxed and friendly…
Awesome morning out with Escape trails running 16k through gorgeous Thetford Forest. Well planned route, lots of fun facts given by Neil along the way. Well paced, everyone stuck together. Very friendly group of participants. Lots of chat and laughter made the 16k going by in a blink of an eye. I had been drawn to the event because it was not a race but a social run promising not to leave anyone behind. It delivered on this promise.
I did the Intro to Trail Running workshop with Escape trails. It was a really enjoyable day, with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. It was informative and fun and finished with a wonderful run through the forest putting what we'd learnt into practice.
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 👌
