Run the Wild prides itself for being inclusive to all runners. Over the years we have met hundreds of runners of assorted ages, gender, size, and of course ability. We love sharing our passion for running, and watching others discover its benefits for the body and mind and also the freedom it offers. Our reward comes from watching runners catch the trail running bug, and achieving goals they didn't think possible either because of concerns about ability or confidence. We offer a safe and supporting environment for women to step into exercise and feel great, and because we have found that sometimes women can feel shy and nervous about joining new running clubs, we felt it important to launch our first women’s only run last winter. Due to its success and popularity we are continuing to offer regular women's only trail runs, great for regular runners and also those who are new to trails. Each event will follow a different route, providing new running adventures for those who have already taken part previously. So, join us for a ladies only 8km guided run through the beautiful woods and open ridgelines of the Chiltern Hills! Along the way you will learn trail running techniques and explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, famous for its use in filming locations.
We will start each run at the Musette Cafe, based in the quintessentially English village of Aldbury. All our female guides are all experienced run leaders who not only route find and set the pace, but will also enlighten you on the surrounding area. When not running they can often 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!
The event is easily accessible, just 40 minutes North West of London by rail or road and there is free on-site parking for all runners. All abilities are catered for, particularly those that are concerned about pace and ability and maybe have never run on trails before. 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 experienced Run Leaders. We walk anything too steep and it's a good opportunity to get some trail running tips from our leaders along the way.

Run the Wild is the UK's premier, dedicated trail running holiday company. It was founded in 2013, born out of the self-sufficient running and climbing adventures that its founder, Simon James pursued in his spare time. All of the team at Run the Wild are passionate about running; we often even get quite emotional about it! The company was founded to bring this experience of running trails in the wild; free of the usual race and logistical burdens, to you. We love exploring places, not just running races. We love meeting people and having an adventure together.
