Did the race in 2023
Absolutely loved my first outing with Run the Wild at the Chilterns Trail Marathon. Fabulous ethos, extremely friendly and welcoming, amazing food at the checkpoint, learnt stuff and met some really interesting people. I will definitely be back! Thank you Karin and everyone at Run the Wild.
Did the race in 2023
It was a super muddy day which made the course real difficult, but the views were beautiful and the people were very lovely. Had a great time!
Did the race in 2022
Great event if you are looking for a perfectly organised event in a beautiful setting, which an abundance of lovely, friendly people. Probably less if you are looking for competition and an "all-out", beat your PB event. Catering, running guidance, and set up was perfect. Strongly recommend.
