The Weekend

The third Love Trail Running Weekend will take place from Ribchester in the incredible Ribble Valley in December 2017. As you'd expect, a lot of thought and planning has gone into the whole weekend to ensure that all those who secure a place, get the absolute most from it. The weekend is based on a 3 night stay at the fantastic 'Somerwood' Holiday Home. Due to its nature the weekend is aimed at and best suited to experienced & active trail runners but with an emphasis on a relaxed & social atmosphere out on the trails.

Accommodation:

Somerwood is located on the perimeter of the Forest Of Bowland (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and just half a mile away from the picturesque village of Ribchester so there's a plethora of incredible trails right on the doorstep.

Friday:

Early evening arrival and a 75 min easy run with head-torch (provided).

8pm - Prepared meal at Somerwood.

Saturday:

A day on the trails split into 3 stages. You will have the option to complete 1,2 or all 3 stages totalling 40km of incredible trails. Once back to Somerwood you'll have chance to rest before freshening up to visit a fine local establishment for a well earned meal out.

Sunday:

A leisurely breakfast and a relaxing morning precedes transportation to a stunning location for an adventure trail run - we guarantee you'll enjoy what we have in store for you. Once back you can relax as we prepare a hearty evening meal. Post evening meal option of 'Film night' - sit back and watch one or two suitably entertaining films on the impressive big screen in the cinema room.

Monday:

Optional early morning 10km guided trail run or simply a leisurely breakfast before heading off home.

Depature anytime before 2pm.
