I would highly recommend Escape Trails Ultramarathon Coaching. I started working with Neil as I was training for my first 100k. The training plans provided were detailed and easy to follow. Neil was flexible to my feedback and provided support at every step of the way. I look forward to working with Neil again in the future.

I have know the owner of Escape Trails a few years now, been on their Guided Ultra, some mixed distance trails. So I felt I had no need to look any further for peace of mind & security, knowing I’d be obtaining the very best support & advice for an impending Ultra I’d booked. I’m a coach myself within another sport so I’ve high expectations of anyone coaching me & I knew Neil would possibly feel this pressure being a good friend. My training started first week of January for the Rat Race The Wall event 15th June. All I can say is due to Escape Trails informative approach to my tailored plan & care, I felt strong to the very end and completed the challenging Ultra 6hrs within the total cutoff time given. This was my first 70 miler and through the kindness, help and well guided and informative support all the way through my plan, it won’t be my last. I wont lie the training was hard and difficult at times, when after a day at work you dig deep to get the miles done, but Neil is understanding of this and tailors plans that key in to real world needs. Can’t thank Escape Trails & the team enough.

Me and my wife meet up with Neil and 8 other keen trail runners at High Lodge Thetford for a 16 km trail run lead by Neil. Neil gave us all a good safety brief before we headed off on our run. The run was at a conversational pace with a few points were we stopped off for a history lesson from Neil. This was a lovely run with a great group of people. Neil was fantastic and a great running leader. I would definitely recommend Escape trails as you will enjoy it like we did. We will also be booking more trail running with Neil and his team. 5 stars.

Neil coached me for ~7 months for my first ultra (100km). He put together a plan that worked around my schedule and adapted it as the training went on. The workouts were always varied and he listened if I wanted more or less of a certain workout. It got rid of any stress I would have had if I had made my own training plan. I could just focus on the running! The training plan was a slow build over many months and worked really well, so I would definitely recommend Neil’s coaching to new or aspiring ultra-runners. Neil also gave me advice on nutrition during runs and gave me useful advice for the race itself. I finished the 100k with a time I’m very proud of, and I couldn’t have done it without Neil’s awesome coaching! Thank you very much!

Awesome morning out with Escape trails running 16k through gorgeous Thetford Forest. Well planned route, lots of fun facts given by Neil along the way. Well paced, everyone stuck together. Very friendly group of participants. Lots of chat and laughter made the 16k going by in a blink of an eye. I had been drawn to the event because it was not a race but a social run promising not to leave anyone behind. It delivered on this promise.

I did the Intro to Trail Running workshop with Escape trails. It was a really enjoyable day, with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. It was informative and fun and finished with a wonderful run through the forest putting what we'd learnt into practice.

This was a great experience. My first 10Km in a very very long time. Everyone made me extremely welcome and calmed my nerves. I will be back on a regular basis to run in great surroundings with this guided group who didn’t leave me behind, thank you.

29th October 10k run with Neil and Lin in Thetford Forest was brilliant. Well organised, relaxed with no time pressure a group of us ran in the autumn sunshine enjoying a varied trail of paths through the forest. A very friendly group with some first time 10k runners along with more experienced trail runners. I’ll be back for another run and will challenge myself to do the 16k next time. A great way to spend a Sunday morning. Thanks Escape Trails.
