Trail Escapes Burnham Deepdale


Join ESCAPE trails for a weekend of running on the beautiful Norfolk coast. We will be based at the fantastic Deepdale Backpackers and Camping, where we will have direct access to the Norfolk Coast Path, as well as many other trails and footpaths perfect to run on.

All runs are led by experienced trail runners Neil Staveley and Hannah Westen, who have a great knowledge of the Norfolk trails. Both are fully qualified UK Athletics Run Leaders, and will be on hand all weekend to answer any questions you may have about trail running. All runs over the weekend will be run at a social pace, with plenty of opportunities to take breaks for snacking, taking photos, and enjoying the views. No one will be left behind, these runs are about exploring, not racing, so please be aware that you may not be the slowest runner, and you may need to run at a slower pace than you are used to.

Over the weekend there is the option of 3 seperate runs, and the routes we have chosen have stunning views but are not over technical terrain. They are ideal for people new to trail running, and if you are comfortable running at 12-13 minute miles you will be fine. The event will also include some evening talks on shoes, kit, and any useful tips to help you get the most out of your trail running.
