We have two guided running trips in 2018 covering 192 miles, one over 10 days and one that will take 12 days. The average pace is usually around 7-8km an hour, including regular breaks/halts to regroup, take photos, refreshments etc. Walking is also perfectly acceptable, especially on the big climbs.
You will receive a high level of package features included:
- High quality accommodation
- Daily bag transfers.
- Free secure parking in Kirkby Stephen.
- Lifts on any day (too ill or injured to walk and our ongoing advice and assistance).
- Free pre-walking training and familiarisation day based from Kirkby Stephen a few weeks before the trip.
Accommodation is in twin-sharing rooms, though there will also be a limited number of single rooms booked on first come basis.
*Evening meals will be booked in our recommended local restaurants, bistro’s or pubs so you can sample the lovely variety of locally sourced food along the way. (P.S. – Meal cost is not included in the package and so you will be required to pay for this locally.)
We recommend that you have suitable and adequate travel insurance that includes cover should you have to cancel your holiday/booking or abandon after you have started.
You will need to have a good level of trail running fitness and stamina to cope with the varied terrain, ground conditions and possible adverse weather conditions that multi-day trail running of the Coast to Coast encounters. It is strongly advised for you to have completed two back-to-back long trail runs (of between 12-16 miles each day) prior to this trip. You will be issued with a medical and fitness disclaimer to complete once we have processed your booking.
Please note that the guided trips are for over 18 years old only.
