High Lodge 16k Trail Run
For this run we’re doing something a little bit different to our regular 10k trail runs at High Lodge, and we’re holding a 16k guided trail run around the beautiful Thetford Forest.
Join us for 16k of fantastic trails, where as well as running, we will give you fascinating facts about the local forest and tips on trail running.
This run will be 16k.
What pace will we be running at?
All runs are led at a conversational pace, ESCAPE trails events are about taking in the scenery and enjoying the trails, not racing. Please be aware that you may not be the slowest person in your group, and you may need to run at a slower pace than normal.
Experience Level? Easy These runs are suitable for anyone that’s been running on the road, and is now taking their first steps in to trail running. The terrain will be mostly flat, with very few obstacles. They are also suitable for anyone that is looking for a nice relaxed run, where they can just enjoy the trails without having to worry about pace.
How long will we be running?
We allow 2.5 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 have time to answer any questions that you may have.
There is plenty of parking at High Lodge. For attendees parking will be charged at £2
What will I need?
We will be running on a variety of terrain from hard-packed trails, to single track trails through woods. Trail shoes would be recommended, but road shoes will be OK if that is all you have.
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.
