Tring 16 Miles
Tring - Train to Trails - 16 miles with 1,640ft of elevation
Meet Time: 9:10am / Run starts at 9:20am
Guides: Michelle and Perry This run starts as a gradual but long climb up to Ivinghoe Beacon via the Ridgeway, through various woods and nature reserves, before opening out on to a ridge with far-reaching views across the Chilterns. Our legs will then get a well-deserved break as we follow compact forest trails through the Ashridge Estate towards the Bridgewater Monument. Here we can take a pit stop and maybe buy a hot coffee or cake at the National Trust Monument Café, before venturing on towards Tring Park with its impressive views and imposing obelisk. Finally, we will re-join the Ridgeway and make our way back down towards the train station where we will say our goodbyes.
Expect to run an average of 12 minute miles
Lewes Three Peaks - Mount Caburn, Firle Beacon and Kingston Ridge (Around 18 miles)
Over 18 miles and in excess of 2600ft of elevation covered on this looped trail in Lewes, East Sussex, England. We start and finish this route in the heart of Lewes, I'll probably grab a coffee and cake afterwards.
This is a public and well known route, it is an event and not a race, therefore the intent is to run as a group, support each other and enjoy the day. This is perfect for building up towards a marathon trail distance. There is a mixture of terrain, minimal time is spent on pavements and mostly we will be on the trails.
A good level of fitness is required, remember snacks, water and a good attitude. We will run even if the weather is poor so come prepared. If you have sticks there is an opportunity to try them out.

"Trail running is for everyone. If you run you are a runner"
Trail running is for everyone. If you run then you are a runner. There are no rules to how fast you must run, there are no rules to how far you must run. My aim is to make the trails accessible for all adults who want to enjoy them.
I am always considering new routes, if there is somewhere you would like to run, let me know and I will see what I can plot.
