FAQS

Distance

This run will be 10k.

What pace will we be running at?

When you sign up for an event you will be asked for a rough 5k, 10k or half marathon time, we will then use this to place you in a group with people of a similar ability, you will not be running at that pace.

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 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.

Parking?

There is plenty of parking at High Lodge. For attendees parking will be charged at £3 for 2 hours, or £5 for the day.

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.

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 : )
