Guided Trail Run Castle Acre 10/10

October 10 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 pm

£8.50

We will start out in the medieval village of Castle Acre , with views of both the Abbey and the Castle. The route then heads out across fields with a slight Norfolk incline, which will give you great views out across the countryside. We then head back downhill towards the village of West Acre, where the route picks up the Nar Valley Way that runs beside the river, before heading back to Castle Acre.

This event will be limited to just 5 people, plus one Run leader. Social distancing will be upheld at all times, with extra measures put in place to make sure everyone stays as safe as possible, if you have any concerns or questions about this please contact us.

Due to us not being able to safely offer some of the usual benefits to our guided runs, we are running all events at reduced prices, and if you want to book onto this event to replace one that was cancelled earlier in the year because of the coronavirus outbreak please contact us.

FAQS

Distance

This run will be 6 miles long – Please note that whilst aiming to be as accurate to this as possible, in some circumstances I may be slightly over or under this mileage, but this will be very slightly.

We will be running at a casual, social pace. These runs are not a race so please be aware that you may not be the slowest runner and we will be running at the pace of the slowest person. If you are able to run at 11/12 min miles you will be fine.

I allow 2 hours for this event, but this will depend on the abilities of the people attending. I want everyone to be able to enjoy it without feeling rushed, and to have time to answer any questions that you may have.

Parking?

There is plenty of on street parking dotted around the village, please be considerate to residents when parking.

What will I need?

We will be running on a variety of terrain from small sections of road, tracks and hard-packed trails, to single track trails through woods.

At least 500ml of water and as many snacks as you think you’ll need.

Most importantly a willingness to enjoy the trails and have fun.

  • 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.
