This half day running adventure based in the Chiltern Hills is all about you discovering what Run the Wild is all about! Along the way you will experience our famous hospitality and enjoy a well stocked refreshment point. As with all Run the Wild events, it's a team event so you will be grouped with similar ability runners and led by one of our Run Leaders who will route find and set the pace for you. We walk anything steep and it's a good opportunity to get some trail running tips from our leaders along the way. This is a great event for you to run in the beautiful Chilterns, meet the RtW team and experience a running adventure that gives you a taster of our multiday routes.

We hope to see you there!
