Summer 10k Series - August route

We will start each run at the Musette Cafe, based in the quintessentially English village of Aldbury. All our guides are local UKA Coaches, and when not running can be seen sipping coffee at Musette's. We will end the run back at the cafe which is a great place to get a post run coffee, smoothie or a freshly cooked trail runners' breakfast!

FAMILIES
-
Many people who run have partners as well as children! We will endeavour to cater for people who want to involve their family in the adventure. On most of our trips you can bring your family along to stay with you in the accommodation and this is particularly relevant on the Intro to the Alps where you will have free time in the afternoon so that you can spend time with the important people in your life who support you in these amazing adventures. If you have any further questions, please get in touch!

FAQs

TRAIL RUNNING
-
Trail running is one of the best ways of exploring wild places. It provides amazing freedom and also is a great way to exercise. There are many health benefits considered to be contributable to trail running vs road running but there are also more hazards and variables to be considered. Please follow this link to the British Mountaineering Council's website on the main considerations. BMC Trail Running Guide - Problems and Hazards

EXPEDITION EQUIPMENT
-

Our Lead Runners are equipped with emergency survival kit as well as a basic first aid kit. Mobile phones are used to communicate in the mountains.
