Guided Coastal 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.

FAQS

Distance

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.

Parking?

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.

    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 seriously can not recommend this group highly enough. 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. I always come back from a run with them with a smile on my face and fun stories to tell! Love 👏these👏 guys👏!!! ❤️

    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.
