About us

First and foremost we are runners. We are passionate about putting on our trainers and getting outdoors. We love to discover, we love to explore and we love our city.  Our city is just a few hours from London, it's beautiful, it's unique, and it has the countryside on the doorstep. We have the great opportunity to incorporate both city and country within a 30 minute run.  We love runners of all abilities and we especially welcome beginners. We run at your pace, and can adjust our tours to suit by terrain, elevation and distance.
