Guided trail runs

Here at Escape trails we offer guided trail running experiences around Norfolk and Suffolk.

Whether you’re an experienced trail runner or a novice, we organise these guided trail runs to cater for all abilities. We have lots of experience on the local trails and have planned different routes with a real variety of terrain and distance, so even if you have experience on the trails we can still find new trails for you to explore.

The runs are social and supportive and no one gets left behind. There will be lots of opportunities to take photos, and more importantly to take in the surrounding nature.

FAQs

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.

What will I need?

We will be running on a variety of terrain from forest tracks to hard-packed trails so trail shoes, while not essential, would be advised – and be prepared to get them muddy!

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 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.

  • 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  Felt a bit random at first as I was the only person to turn up . But Neil is a good old boy had a really good natter and a good route was selected so it was quite a chilled 10k . Worth doing of your thinking about it

    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👏!!! ❤️
