Background

This 0.5 day 1:1 running adventure is based in the Chiltern Hills with access to great trails through the undulating chalk hills and local woods, all led by a local English Athletics qualified Run Leader. It’s a beautiful area which will hopefully inspire and challenge you. Your meeting point unless otherwise arranged will be at Tring Station. Your guide for the morning will focus on your running technique over different types of terrain, discuss training plans and also different aspects of training, nutrition and kit. All our guides are qualified, know the local area and are passionate about trail running. Please arrive ready to run from the meeting point, along with some snacks and drink to sustain you for the morning. 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.

Accommodation & Transport

You will need to arrange your own transport to the car park at Tring Station for the start of the adventure, but there are regular trains from London Euston which take around 40 minutes and there is also an onsite car park (Pay & Display) should you prefer to drive. We can help you with booking any local accommodation, from 5* spa hotels to local country inns.
