Being based on the edge of the Lake District National Park it would be rude not to put on trail running weekends for people to share the sense of freedom that running on trails can give you. You don’t have to run far to feel the trails are yours and yours alone. This is why we love getting out with friends (new and old!) in the outdoors and believe that it should always be fun and inclusive. A massive part of what we do is trying to make sure everyone’s supported, but in particular the person at the back of the pack! Our runs are gentle, moving at your pace, stopping often to take in the views, take a few snaps and to re-group.

Your weekend will consist of - arriving Friday evening at Oxenholme train station between 4:30pm and 6pm and we'll transport you to Coniston. If you want to make your own way, we'll meet you at the Yewdale Inn at around 7:00.  We'll have a buffet dinner while we do introductions, and explain in more detail the timetable for the weekend.  We have a variety of accommodation options including single, double or twin

On Saturday morning we'll have a hot and cold breakfast buffet available from 8:30 until 9:30am followed by around an hour of Pilates. We'll then have a route & safety briefing and then we'll be off on our run!  Distance on the Saturday will be around 20k - don't be intimidated by the distance, our focus is on social runs with plenty of stops, including to have lunch.  After the run we'll have afternoon tea (a hot drink and cake/scone) or you can have a couple of hours Stand Up Paddle Boarding with our friends at LakeSUP (additional cost of £35 per person, pre-booking essential as it won't be on offer on the weekend). After afternoon tea, you have the option of an hours Pilates. Then in late afternoon and early evening you can have a walk around Coniston, or a paddle/dip in the lake. We've also got the optional extra available of Ayurvedic neck and shoulder massage from Calm and Control Pilates

We'll then have a two course dinner around 7:30pm and you can adjourn to the bar for a drink, watch inspirational films about running and hear from our celebrity attendee - the awesome co-founder/ex editor of Trail Running Magazine and YouTuber/film maker Claire Maxted.

On Sunday morning it'll be similar to Saturday - breakfast, pilates, run. We'll try and take in some iconic views to ensure you see the best that the Lake District has to offer. Within a few miles of our accommodation are some truly mind-blowing views. We'll offer shorter runs on Sunday, with the option to extend if our legs are feeling springy!  Again, we'll have a packed lunch mid-way and return for some post-run Pilates and afternoon tea before we aim to finish at 3pm.

Our ultimate aim over the weekend, is to have social runs where we all enjoy each other's company and take in the amazing environment of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the English Lake District. This may mean, that if you're a faster runner, you're waiting a bit for others to catch up - but this''ll offer plenty of opportunity to take some awe inspiring pics (weather permitting!). All of our runs will have 2 Run Leaders on, to ensure that we're kept together, and everyone is supported
