2021 Running Weekends

Running Escapes Logo.png

Love to run but find yourself on the same trails every time? 

Then why not give one of our set departures a try!  These weekends will give you the opportunity to meet new friends, explore new trails in an area you may have never visited before and most importantly relax and have fun! 

We are focused on fun times not finish times so there's no need to worry about speed, as long as you feel comfortable with the distances planned on each route and have a basic level of fitness then these weekends will be suited to you.  Runs will be nice and steady with plenty of opportunities to stop for photographs, refreshments and to re-group. You'll also have the added benefit of an experienced run leader on hand to guide you on the route and offer lots of friendly advice and support.  Beyond the running we will be organising lots of social activities for you to enjoy! Places are limited to 10 per weekend. 

We hope to welcome you on one of our upcoming weekend breaks soon and the details are below!
