If you love trail running, there's a chance an Escape would be your perfect break. Our aim is to create an ideal balance of fun, adventure, exploration and relaxation. Interested?

Martin & Julie Vernon enjoyed an Escape recently. Read their REVIEW here.

Unwind in beautiful Barrowford, Lancashire, it’s a fabulous location, just minutes from some amazing trail running environments, including the relatively undiscovered Forest of Bowland AONB, magnificent Pendle Hill and world heritage site - the incredible Lake District.

We offer a variety of inclusive packages. It works like this: For every night you book on an Escape, we offer bed & breakfast and a fabulous half day of guided trail running, tailored to your groups preferences.

Your Escape will involve exploring some truly stunning off-road environments – each day also has the option of sampling the menu at one of numerous delightful cafes. We have got so many great routes and fabulous landscapes to share and can offer a huge choice of distances to suit your preference.

About your guide and host, Rodger

As a passionate trail runner, Rodger's spent over fifteen years building up a vast network of intricate trails, mainly in the North West of England, and has been guiding groups and individuals on unique routes for more than 10 years. He's a qualified BTF Level 3 coach with a valid ITC outdoor first aid certificate and takes people’s safety seriously. Definitely a people person, he enjoys providing high quality, friendly, fun and appropriately challenging Trail Running Escapes.

Martin Vernon “Rodger’s planning is meticulous and his intimate knowledge of the Lancashire fells meant that the routes each time were a great mix of challenge and interest. His easy going and engaging nature makes for plenty of interesting banter.”


Ability Level

While some background in running and trail running may be beneficial there is no minimum requirement for one of our Escapes. As its your own bespoke trail running holiday, Rodger can adapt the runs to suit your fitness or ability level.


Rodger’s able to plan interesting and appropriate routes, of varying distances from a multitude of scenic locations - all tailored to your preferences.


We can accommodate anywhere between two and five guests per Escape. Depending on your preferences, we offer beautiful, en-suite double bedrooms and a cosy triple bedroom. We'll put a great spread on for breakfast each day and should you wish to cook any other meals, you'll have full access to a modern, well-equipped kitchen and dining room. There’s wonderful countryside on the doorstep but everyone looking to ‘Escape’ needs a great base, so that’s what we’re offering, right at the heart of Barrowford. It's a thriving little town, with quirky shops, great restaurants and bags to interest those who love the great outdoors.


Includes accommodation, breakfast & your personal trail running guide.

All bedrooms have private bathrooms and large screen, smart T.V’s.

Full use of the kitchen to prepare evening meals (if opting to stay in).

Each Escape includes a digital photo album to relive your adventure.

Each person will receive an LTR gift at the end of their Escape.

LTR Escapes cost from as little as £55 per person, per day.
