Your organiser

Since 2013, Run the Wild has been dedicated to delivering incredible trail running adventures in the UK and European Alps. Trail running is the ultimate pursuit of freedom, of feeling alive and it's something we are really passionate about! There’s nothing that compares to the feeling of running along mountain paths and for a moment leaving behind your busy life. Start YOUR amazing journey with Run the Wild! The company was founded to bring this experience of running trails in the wild; free of the usual race and logistical burdens, to you. We love exploring places, not just running races. We love meeting people and having an adventure together. We like races too, but this is where our heart really lies and if we can help you have more fun running trails; whether to see the sun rise over Mt Blanc as you climb up over a mountain pass, or indeed to check out a future race route then we will be happy! Join us running off into the unknown, the path flowing underneath your feet, snow capped mountains glinting in the sun, clouds melting away in the valleys far below. Setting your heart and mind free... Exploring places... not running races. This is what it feels like to be alive! “The mountains are calling and I must go.” John Muir, Meet the team.

Route description
Route description

The trails vary from pine woods to rocky exposed routes, something for everyone. The organisers pick some really beautiful 13km (approx.) trails for you whilst you which show off the valley at its best, so you get a good flavour of what to expect on our longer adventures. They will also look at some of the trail techniques that will make you a more proficient trail runner. You will get some breath taking views of Mt Blanc as well as the Aiguilles (needles).

Since this holiday is focused on comfort, running and yoga, the trail runs will last around 3.5 hours a day followed by an alpine yoga session leaving you relaxed and ready to enjoy the rest of each day, to relax and explore Chamonix and possibly even take a trip up to the Aiguille du Midi.

Ability

This holiday is aimed at yogi runners looking for an introduction to running trails in the Alps whilst incorporating the key principles of yoga to help you run more efficiently and safely. The trails wind along the side of the valleys as well as climb up above the tree line and so the organisers can adjust the route according to the ability of the group. Be prepared to walk uphills to get the great views!

The organisers experienced and qualified Lead Runners will offer many tips along the way so whether you are relatively new to running trails, just looking to explore the valley or a speedier runner looking for a short luxury break then this is an excellent holiday for you!

Following your adventures in the Alps, runners will be guided through two yoga classes, suitable for all levels including beginners. Aimed to support your running, the restorative sessions will release any muscle tension accumulated during the day in the hills, as well as working on flexibility and strength.
