    By Lou Barnes As sports go, running is probably not often cited as a team activity. Relays do not attract the same glory as the single (men’s) events, medals are handed out to individual finishers not their support crew, event marshals or organisers. Yet behind the often competitive talk of personal bests and Garmin updates, […]

    As it appears in The Guardian blog I was only nine years old in 1981, when the first ever London Marathon resulted in a tie between American Dick Beardsley and Norwegian Inge Simonsen. They crossed the finish line together in 2 hours, 11 minutes, 48 seconds. Not quite holding hands – but the image has […]

What people are saying about Wild Running

“Wild Running is a joyous, exhilarating way to spend a weekend. If you’re training for a marathon or an ultramarathon, it’s a world away from the monotonous pounding of city pavements.”

Adharanand FinnAuthor of Running With Kenyans (The Guardian)

“Wild running guides Ceri and Mark were superb. A great route was planned with enough challenge but flexible too- to accommodate my speed and endurance levels. They quickly found my pace, and gave encouragement to push a bit harder and offered welcome advice from their wealth of experience of ultrarunning giving me much more confidence for my next challenge ahead. Looking forward to getting out on the trails of Dartmoor again and will certainly run with Wild Running and hope to share a well earned pint too afterwards with them both.”

“Thanks so much again the wild running weekend was absolutely brilliant!”

“Despite the rain, had a totally awesome time. Fell in a lot of bogs, swam under some very cold waterfalls, was asked by some squaddies if I was racing with the SAS, rescued 2 young lambs from certain death and saw more archaeology in 4 days than I have since my last dig nearly 25 years ago.  So it really isn’t just about the running. “
