If you enjoyed our 'Meet the Team 5k' but don't feel quite ready for one of our more challenging 10km Intro/Tasters - this 7.5km event from the fabulous Brockholes Nature Reserve could be an ideal way to build on your trail running experience:

A Brockholes Guided Trail Run is perfect for anyone who's keen to start trail running or looking to progress from a 5k.

It’s relaxed and easy going with a mix of walking up the hills, jogging and running and the distance is around 7.5km.

Everyone will be guided along a well-planned route which takes in some of the best features of our nature reserve. The focus will be on having fun and enjoying the social group atmosphere. It's not a race and those who find the pace easy must be happy to accommodate any slower runners and to go no faster than the lead guide.

The run will be led by the experienced and ever friendly 'Love Trail Running’ team. They've been guiding a range of abilities on their unique trail running events for years, so we're super happy they've agreed to get involved and guide our trail runs.
