ESCAPE Paston Way
Join us for a guided trail run along the Paston Way. The route is 22 miles long and runs from North Walsham to Cromer on the Norfolk Coast.
The Paston Way takes it name from the Paston family, who during the Medieval and Tudor periods were the landowners of much of the land that we will be passing through. There is plenty of history to look at along the route, making it perfect for one of our guided trail runs.
This run will be 22 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 6 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.
There a various pay and display car parks dotted around the town of North Walsham.
Although this is a linear route, there are options for travel back to your car from Cromer, including a train that runs every hour.
We also have a car share group on facebook to help cut down on traffic.

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