About this trip

Join us on a stunning trail weekend as we set out to run 80km off the stunning Cotswold Way - running from North to South.

This is a perfect trail adventure for those looking to get into trail running or for this wishing to step up their game. 

This fully-guided and fully-supported adventure takes in outstanding trails as we run our way through chocolate box villages, ancient monuments, rolling fields before finishing in the impressive city of Bath.

We’ve split the trail adventure into sections - running flexible distances of approx. 15 - 20 miles per day depending on how you are feeling - giving us ample time to get the most out of our journey. We’ll take our time with lots of stops and insights along the way, maximising the experience and adjusting the pace to whatever suits you. 

We have a support vehicle with us throughout providing us water, nutrition and supplies, ferrying our baggage from point to point, daily sessions on running technique, massages and evening inspirational talks which leaves you nothing to worry about so that you can focus on the journey.

We’ll complete 80km of the Cotswold Way over the course of 3-days where we finish our journey at the doors of Bath Abbey - it is set to be a cracker.

Thankyou for a fantastic time. A well organised and unique trip seeing beautiful scenes - post card worthy, as well as being immersed into the culture and cuisine of Albania. Not forgetting the Albanian Raki! Great group of people on the trip, along with the local and UK guides. Looking forward to the next trip with Pure Trails!

Escapism from hectic London life, running some beautiful trails, with like minded individuals. The guys at pure trails are simply lovely, great organisation, whilst being relaxed, passionate & v knowledgable about running (but in a very humble & approachable way) what more could you ask for! Got my confidence back on the mountains, & ready to do more, thanks guys :)
