Group Run Info

Distance: 17.5km | Elevation: 400m+

Our social run follows the iconic section of The Ridgeway to Coombe Hill and along to Whiteleaf Hill.

We will aim to complete this route together in 2h15. There are several long climbs, which for the most part will be hiked. There will only be one pace group, so we recommend being already comfortable running this distance to enjoy this run.

If this run is too long/hilly for you, why not try out one of our shorter self navigated loops, or check out our beginner trail runs that are happening in June.
