Running the Coast to Coast

Running the Coast to Coast

Descending down through Grisedale towards Patterdale


“You’ll get tired with all that running”, casually remarked a Swaledale farmer as we passed him near Marske.

Maybe, but what an exhilarating experience, going along light of feet at a pace that feels natural and allows you to be at one with your natural environment. Travelling lighter than walking yet not compromising on anything – plenty of photo stops, meeting the characters that you always seem to come across on the Coast to Coast, enjoying plenty of good food & drink (yes running it really does increase your appetite). All in the company of knowledgeable and experienced Coast to Coast trail running guides (including the director of Packhorse Mark Sandamas) who will look after your welfare, guide you along the way, manage the food stops and explain the various sights and activities you will come across. They will also carry key safety equipment.

It is also feasible to combine some non-running days, such as through cycling, a lift in our minibus or local public transport, if you feel you need a break.

We have one guided running trip in 2018 covering 192 miles over 10 days. The average pace is usually around 7-8km an hour, including regular breaks/halts to regroup, take photos, refreshments etc. Walking is also perfectly acceptable, especially on the big climbs.

You will receive a high level of package features included:

High quality accommodation
Daily bag transfers.
Free secure parking in Kirkby Stephen.
Lifts on any day (too ill or injured to walk and our ongoing advice and assistance).
Free pre-walking training and familiarisation day based from Kirkby Stephen a few weeks before the trip.
Accommodation is in twin-sharing rooms, though there will also be a limited number of single rooms booked on first come basis.

*Evening meals will be booked in our recommended local restaurants, bistro’s or pubs so you can sample the lovely variety of locally sourced food along the way. (P.S. – Meal cost is not included in the package and so you will be required to pay for this locally.)

You will need to have a good level of trail running fitness and stamina to cope with the varied terrain, ground conditions and possible adverse weather conditions that multi-day trail running of the Coast to Coast encounters. You are strongly advised to have completed two back-to-back long trail runs (of between 12-16 miles each day) prior to this trip. You will be issued with a medical and fitness disclaimer to complete once we have processed your booking.

Please note that the guided trips are for over 18 years old only.
