Background

Trail running in the Alps is the ultimate trail running adventure, so why not choose a professional, personal guide to make the most of this experience! All trail running guides at Run the Wild are fully qualified, experienced and competent trail runners. Not only will we take away the need to navigate the network of trails, but also along the way your guide will look at some of the trail techniques such as mastering the uphills and downhills that will make you a more proficient trail runner and also provide lots of interesting information about this incredibly diverse mountain environment. Each of our guides are experienced at trail running, both in racing, often placing highly in local and world trail events, as well as solo adventures, so it's an excellent opportunity to ask questions and get some inside tips on how to succeed at trail running in the mountains.

For most of the 1 to 1 guided adventures we use the Chamonix valley which sits at the foot of the majestic snow covered peak of Mt Blanc which towers over the area, standing 4810m tall. Chamonix hosts the world famous UTMB (Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc) race and is a mecca for professional trail running athletes and the buzz of the town and the beauty of the trails provide an inspiring backdrop to a trail running adventure. Trails around this area are truly captivating with glaciers and summits round each corner. Alternatively, we can head out to the surrounding mountainous areas, including Italy and Switzerland. If you have more time you can book a guide for a 1 day or multi-day adventure, just get in touch to find out more.

REVIEWS

"Running the trails beneath the Aiguilles Rouges, with a cloudless sky above and views of the Mont Blanc massif that were to die for was the best running experience I've had in years" Stuart - September 2017
