Boudicca Way Guided Ultra

Starting out at Diss we will run the 36 mile Boudicca Way, taking in the beautiful Norfolk countryside, before finishing at Norwich Station.

The route showcases some of the best parts of Norfolk, passing through several picturesque villages, with lots of local history and nature to take in. The run is fully guided by qualified run leaders, it’s not a race, and is perfect for someone wanting to run their first ultra. We want people to be able to enjoy the satisfaction that comes from running an ultra, whilst being able to enjoy the scenery at a relaxed pace, and hopefully learning something new about the county of Norfolk along the way.

    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.

    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  Felt a bit random at first as I was the only person to turn up . But Neil is a good old boy had a really good natter and a good route was selected so it was quite a chilled 10k . Worth doing of your thinking about it

Both guides have a crazy amount of experience and mileage under their belt, but in spite of that it's such a relaxed encouraging atmosphere.
