Coastal Guided Trail Run Spring Edition

Join us for a fully guided 19 mile trail run from Holme-Next-The-Sea to Wells-Next-The-Sea, this is a beautiful route following big sections of the Norfolk Coast Path. The route passes through small quaint villages, tidal marshes and pine woodlands, with endless opportunity to spot wildlife, and to see the big skies that Norfolk is famous for. There is also a cafe at the end in Wells, perfect for grabbing a cuppa and resting after the run.

FAQS

Distance

This run will be 19 miles long

What pace will we be running at?

ESCAPE trails events are not races, and we will be running at a conversational pace. You will be put into a group of runners of similar ability, but please be aware you may not be the slowest runner in your group, so you may need to run slower than you are used to.

Experience Level? Intermediate These runs are suitable for anyone that has a good level of experience with trail running. The terrain will be harder going than the beginner level, with more obstacles and possibly more incline to climb. These runs will generally be run at a quicker pace than those in the beginner level.

How long will we be running?

We allow 5 hours for this event, but this will depend on the abilities of the people attending. We want everyone to be able to enjoy it without feeling rushed, and to be able to take in the beautiful surroundings.

Parking?

There is parking at Holme-Next-The-Sea, which is a pay and display. You will need to make your own way back to your car at Holme from Wells if you park here. There is the regular Coasthopper bus that you can use for this if needed, which costs around £3.60

What will I need?

We will be running on a variety of terrain from small sections of road, tracks, hard-packed trails and sections of beach, so trail shoes would be advised.

Waterproof jacket and depending on the weather sun cream

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.

What’s included?

A fully qualified Run Leader to guide you along the route, and show you points of interest, history, wildlife etc.

Fully stocked aid station at half way.

£1 of your entry fee will be donated to the Norfolk Trails Team, to help with the upkeep of the trails.

What’s not included?

Travel back to your car from the end point.

This was an amazing experience!! All fears were laid to rest with the friendly team at escape trails. A beautiful route. Being guided meant that there was no risk of getting lost!! Having fuelling stations made things easier and any additional kit close by just in case, even the weather was kind. Would definitely recommend Thank you Neil and Hannah

Really good run along the river from Trowse. Good and clear communication prior to the event. On the day , Neil looks after you and nothing is too much trouble. If you have the chance, take on one of the events, you will not regret it.

I accompanied Neil and Hannah for a relaxed, sociable run through Thetford Forest (10k). It was slickly arranged (clear email communication) and a great way to meet some new people and break some fresh trails. Highly recommended!

Extremely friendly and chilled lot. Neil and Hannah are very lovely and this reflects on the business and the run. Communication prior to the run was really thorough with all relevant info to help you be at ease. I completed my first ever ultra distance as I ran the Boudicca Way with the gang and I had so much fun! The pace was sociable. I couldn’t recommend ESCAPE trails enough you’ll have a blast! I definitely want to run with this lot again : )
