Coastal Guided Trail Run
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.
This run will be 19 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.
What pace will we be running at?
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.
How long will we be running?
I allow 5 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.
There is parking at Holme-Next-The-Sea, which is a pay and display. There are also a small number of free on street spaces dotted around the village. 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.
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.
