Det skal I lave

We will run, from the village of Grindleford, along an ancient drovers footpath through local deciduous woodland onto the high moorlands. The run will be between 4 and 8 miles, depending on the abilities of those taking part. It will likely be muddy (depends on the time of year), rocky and rough, and will include some steep hills. The emphasis will be on exploring and having fun, not on fast times. We will stop regularly. I will explain about the local history, we will look for wild deer and birds of prey, and check out some amazing views from little visited spots that you wouldn't otherwise find.
Other things to note
Don't worry if you aren't a fast runner. I will tailor the run to suit the group. If there is a wide range of abilities I can devise ways of keeping the fitter runner/s busy. The emphasis is on fun!

I've lived in, run in, and explored the Peak District for more than a decade. I love to get off the beaten track, onto the moors and gritstone edges and really get to know places. I am a qualified run leader and love to share the secret spots I've found.

Her skal du være

The route will be decided once we I know the abilities and experience of the group, and we know the current ground conditions and weather forecast. It will likely include Hay Wood, Jubilee Rocks, the seldom visited Quarryman's Kitchen, White Edge Lodge, the spectacular White Edge and the world-famous Froggatt Edge.

We hadn't done a trail run or anything like it before but Matt did a great job to cater for our fitness levels and was happy to stop/walk when needed (particularly during/after some steep climbs). In total we were out for the full 90mins and covered just over 8km/5mi. He took time to show us interesting parts along the way, showed us Chatsworth house in the distance, saw some deer also, and just had a nice chat along the way. We both really enjoyed it, his dog Rocky was happy trotting along with us too. Great morning run 🙌🏽

The experience was great and the views were definitely worth the climb. A bit more mental preparation was needed if I had been informed of the route and expectations. it was definitely an experience though!

110% recommend this experience! Was nice to run with a local area expert and not have to look at maps :) Matt was lovely and gave me some great trail running tips, which I will be sure to use going forward!

Fantastic guided trail run though stunning scenery. Matt is extremely knowledgeable about the area and very kind and patient. The views were breathtaking. I am not a quick runner but it did not matter at all and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I would recommend to runners of all abilities.

Fantastic morning out running with Matt. We met in Grindleford and Matt lead the way through some beautiful woodland, up to a spectacular, photo-worthy vantage point and we enjoyed the scenic views. We even spotted a few deer in the moorland below. Matt is an excellent guide, very friendly and able to tailor the running to your level of fitness. He has some great local knowledge and this felt like a real gem of an experience.

Excellent. My husband, daughter and I signed up for this activity. She is a very good middle distance runner and I jog fairly regularly so we were mixed ability. Matt gauged the pace very well so I was able to keep up. We chatted as we ran and from discussion Matt adapted the route to suite what we liked - my husband and daughter did a little scrambling while I took an easier route. The run/walk was very up and down and covered a range of terrain. We saw some deer and some wonderful scenery. Matt was a highly informative and friendly guide giving us a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend it and if we come to this area on holiday again we will definitely return.
