Amersham Guided Trail Run – Sunday 12th May – 12 Miles

£15.00

Amersham Guided Trail Run – Sunday 12th May Distance: 12 miles / 20km Elevation: 1,221ft / 400m Meeting Point: Amersham Train Station

We will begin by running through Parsonage Woods down into the picturesque Amersham Old
Town. We will then start to climb up to Hodgemoor Woods, where hopefully we get to see the
beautiful bluebells if they are still in bloom. Next up is Great Beard’s Wood in Beaconsfield with its
Narnia like passage and scattered trails. Finally we will drop back down into Amersham old town
before climbing back up to the station where we will say our goodbyes or chat some more over
coffee and cake. This is a good route for people new to trail running or transitioning from road
running as although it could be very muddy and overgrown in places, the terrain is not too technical
and hills are undulating.
