Group Trailruns | RunHIGHER Series 

We lead a wide range of social, group runs – or ‘RunSOCIALs’ – with distances and speeds to suit all abilities. All of the runs are for enjoyment, not a race, so it’s accessible to everyone who wants to try running off-road, or explore new places in a safe, social setting. Below is a list of upcoming runs in 2018. We’re always adding in additional runs in new places and with different distance options which we’ll publish here and on our social channels.

Summer Season 2018

  • RunHIGHER Series – getting high on the hills!
  • Solstice Trail Series – 3 trail races, 7km, 12km, 15km.

We all want to get high and you can do it with us this summer.

Led by a Mountain Leader, and with additional group support, our RunHIGHER Series will help you to push your limits, challenge your perceptions of your own abilities and dare your adventurous side to get high, safe in the knowledge you’ll be supported by qualified and experienced guides.

If you’d like to get involved to help us make this happen, drop us a line via email or our social channels and we can arrange a time to run and chat.
