difficulty & grading 

We are flexible with the group and undertake a holistic approach to running, we appreciate the individuality of everybody's running capabilities. This is why we have carefully design trips for all abilities. We put emphasis on the experience, the journey and doing what we love in spectacular locations as one of our main criteria for each trail running holiday. They are not competitions or a training camp but well-balanced active trail running holidays. Be it physical improvement or time to unwind in beautiful locations we've got you covered. 

 

With each destination having its own demands we have set out a some principles to help you find the right trip. To do this we look at the core elements of trail running: terrain, total distance, total ascent and experience. This is just a guide, so please refer to each destination overview section for more information. We encourage you to look at the guidance below and work out where you feel you fit best, should you have any queries please contact us.
