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.

Absolutely loved it from start to finish. The guides were incredibly friendly, organised and swung calmly into action during a minor incident. The running views were incredible and the routes were well planned, with plenty of refreshments tailored to personal preferences. Would 100% re-book to go again.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my trip. I thought that Charlie was an excellent leader and Eddie and Al were also both fantastic. I would have liked the group to have been slightly larger as just the three of us was a bit small. I also thought that having so many guides would mean we could spread out a bit more whilst running but that wasn’t the case. I think the itinerary was a good amount of running and relaxing. Overall I would recommend the company to a friend.

Simply said: an amazing experience! Grateful i had the chance to get to know a different kind of Mallorca while crossing the Tramuntana together with a great group of runners 🤗 I loved what a team work it has been throughout the week - and how many social but also peaceful moments the week brought. Definitely recommend it to anyone who is keen to combine travel with sports - meanwhile I am already into thinking where to do something similar in 2023 ...

This journey deep into the Picos de Europa was the trip of a lifetime! Everything about it was incredible: the views, the food, and of course the trails. Over 3 days, we covered such a variety of terrains, ranging from rocky mountain passes which felt like an alien planet, to gorgeous (and thankfully shaded!) forest paths. Our guides Charlie and Eddy were fantastic, super encouraging all the way through, and made us feel completely safe in their hands as they took us through some of the most remote parts of the region. If you love running and/or mountains, you won't regret booking this trip!

This trip exceeded all of my expectations. It was a fantastic time and awesome adventure. Charlie and team expertly guided us through the gorgeous Lake District. Everything was well organized and most importantly, a lot of fun. I highly recommend Pure Trails.
