  • I have just spent a weekend away with our Triathlon Club wild running with Ceri & Martin & Richard as guides. We were a very mixed group of faster, slower, young, not so young, mostly not experienced wild runners & actually mostly of the fairer sex. The weather was pretty challenging with rain, wind & some lovely sunshine but what an ace weekend we had, so exhilarated with the views & the paths & the mud & the pub lunches & last but not least Ceri’s amazing guiding & hosting. I cant recommend these guys enough, we will definitely be back.

    Dartmoor Wild Running Weekend, March 2018
  • We had to share these reviews with you from our recent Dartmoor Wild Running Camp. (We try really hard to go the extra yard for all our clients and to make it fun, as well as challenging).

    Ceri from Wild Running organised our trail running weekend in Devon. Everything starting from accommodation, food, catering, transportation to the routes and runs was absolutely perfect. Ceri was very accommodating with all requests and last minute changes, we were a mixed group of 20 and everyone one loved the wild running weekend. The runs were well organised including logistics such as having dry clothes waiting for us at the end of the runs. We are looking forward to having the wild running weekend as a regular event on our club calendar.

    London Fields Triathlon Group: Wild Running Dartmoor Camp
  • Thanks again for the fantastic Dartmoor Camp- I thoroughly enjoyed running with you guys and of course the weather was the icing on the cake. I can’t believe that we were wearing shorts and singlets on the moors when it’s back to warm layers this week. I’m sure I’ll be back on one of the Dartmoor Camps at some stage.

    Dartmoor Spring Camp
  • It was a great weekend with great company and has certainly provided me with new insights into running form and running technique.

    I was pleased to complete the inaugural Newport marathon in 3.42… just within the good for age target of 3.45. Tor running certainly contributed to better endurance!

     

     

    Dartmoor Spring Camp, 2018
  • “Just a quick and fulsome thank-you for a great race/weekend at Huccaby Farm this weekend. I expected and found the marathon to be a challenge for me, but it was nevertheless wonderful. A great route through some brilliant bits of Dartmoor, but what’s more, a really welcoming festival and lovely atmosphere, mellow and friendly. I thought the venue was spot on, the food providers were all fabulous. I’m only sorry we couldn’t hang around for speaker’s evening as I’d have loved to hear these, too.” (Something Wild Festival Dartmoor, September 2016)

    The Keaney Family- Something Wild Trail Run Festival
  • “I wanted to thank you for the most incredible weekend away – for me and Holly and Beth. You put together such a great itinerary for the girls – a mix of long runs, games, talks, fun and really got down to their level.”

    Junior Camp Testimonials
  • “I found it helpful to be reminded that as parents we need to encourage our children in the sports they love but not to put undue pressure on them. Racing is addictive and my two want to do as much as they can and I often find myself being drawn in, I suspect unhelpfully at times, so just being relaxed and enjoying the journey was incredibly useful to me.”

    Oxford AC parent  Pocket Rockets
  • “It was a great bonding session for them and has given them glorious memories of running across Dartmoor with their friends in stunning sunshine. I don’t think they realise how lucky they are. In years to come, I hope this will give them a real love for this sport.”

  • Thank you very much Ceri for everything, it was a great weekend and I really enjoyed your company

    Pablo Marquez Dartmoor Natural Running Camp and first time fell runner
  • I had a really great week, and absolutely loved getting the opportunity to explore the countryside!

    Gemma Bridges, USA
  • “Was a good day that really gave me lots to a absorb. Have relayed good feedback to education department here so hopefully others will follow.”

    James Herbert, SAS applicant
  • Great weekend where I learnt a huge amount about navigation and Dartmoor itself. As a complete navigation novice, the whole weekend was tailored to my individual needs ensuring that I left feeling totally confident with a map and compass.
