Mountain Running

Mountain runs have significant elevation gain and most often take place on trails.

The mountains: For runners, it brings to mind beautiful scenery, cool summer temperatures, an escape from the pavement and the allure of magical fitness benefits. For many, it also brings a lot of apprehension about the hills!

If your heart rate shoots up every time you hit a hill, leaving you gasping for air and feeling lightheaded, then it’s time to try to take it easier uphill, maybe walking some sections and running the downhill parts.

Some of the tours we offer in the mountains are point to point tours, where you run between overnight accommodation with your luggage transported, while others offer spectacular and varied running from a fixed base.

Heading to the hills rewards a runner with a sense of adventure, the fun of running in varied terrain, and of course some world-class views.

Trail running is a unique way to experience the world. You’ll enjoy beautiful landscapes as you run over rocky passes or through lush meadows, stopping along the way to take in the views.

Enjoy wide open spaces, varied trails and, if you’re up in the mountains, stunning views from the peaks.

Trail running offers some of the best experiences of running. Our local guides are all passionate about running, as well as being extremely knowledgeable about the culture, flora and fauna of the environment they work in. They will share with you their knowledge about the local culture and take you to some of the finest spots.

Some tours are on very well-maintained trails, so the terrain isn’t adding much of a challenge, while other tours are more technical with steep steps, rocks and roots to keep you “on your toes”!
