We are blessed to be based in Derbyshire, one of the best places on the whole planet to get out for a run. As well as the world famous Peak District National Park, we have a wealth of beautiful and historic places to enjoy. As well as a huge variety of spectacular landscapes, we have many historic towns, villages, country estates and stately homes all within running distance.

If you like running and the great outdoors, our guided runs are an ideal way to get out there and enjoy this wonderful area in the company of like minded people. We take away all the hassle of route planning and navigation, so you can just turn up with your kit and enjoy the run. 

We have a number of tried and tested route options that you can choose from, with varying degrees of difficulty. Alternatively, we can put together something bespoke to suit you.

Although most of our runs are in or around Derbyshire, we have experience of putting runs together in many other parts of the UK. We are therefore happy to organise a guided run elsewhere for you for minimum additional cost.

The emphasis on these runs is enjoying the surroundings, so there will be opportunities to stop to enjoy the views, take photographs etc. The pace will not be fast and will be adjusted to suit the members of the group.

Guided Running Adventures

Squeeze it into your day

60-90 mins (inclusive of breaks for photos etc.) covering between 4 & 7 miles, depending on the terrain.

If you are short of time, or do not have the fitness for one of the longer runs, this is the option for you. Perhaps you want to squeeze a run in before breakfast to leave the rest of the day free to spend with your family or at work, or run in the early evening to unwind after a busy day.

£40 + £5 for each additional runner         

We may be able to reduce the cost per runner if we can hook you up with another group, as the base charge of £40 is shared amongst more people.  Maximum group size is 15. 

Sample routes:

Calke Abbey circuit: Grade 1

Dash around Dovedale: Grade 2

Chatsworth Deerstakler: Grade 2

High Hopes: Grade 3

Half Day Adventure

3 - 4 hours (inclusive of breaks) and covering between 10 & 15 miles, depending on the terrain

If you are after a long run and/or want to explore a wider area, then the half day option is ideal. These can be organised in the morning or afternoon, leaving the rest of your day free for other things.

Run Grading

 

We use a simple grading system to give you an idea of the difficulty of the routes we use for our running adventures, in terms of the gradients and underfoot conditions.

Some gentle but runnable hills for anyone with a moderate level of fitness.

Some short sections with steep gradients but generally good underfoot conditions.

Some challenging hills and underfoot conditions, with rock, mud etc.

Challenging gradients and underfoot conditions. Some sections are difficult to run and there may be some scrambling.

 

Off-Road Taster Sessions

If you want to venture off-road for the first time or develop your skills for off-road running, our Taster sessions may be just what you’re looking for.

 

The kind of terrain can be whatever you choose, ranging from the local park or to cross-country trails through to remote mountain areas. 

The service includes helping to plan a route suitable to your needs and level of fitness, advice on kit, etc., and an experienced off-road runner to accompany you during the run itself. Along the way we will do the route finding (or teach you how to do it), and provide practical advice and information to help you build the confidence to head out there on your own.

We can arrange these for individuals, couples or small groups of up to 5 people.

Location and timing of these sessions can be flexible to meet your needs. However, if we need to travel an excessive distance from our base in Derbyshire, it may incur an additional cost.

Under 18’s must be accompanied and supervised at all times by a parent or guardian.

1 hour run:

£40 (+£5 for each additional runner)

 

Half day, up to 3 hours:

£70 (+10 for each additional runner)

 

Full day, up to 6 hours:
