For all our Guided trail runs as long as you can jog about 6 mile on the flat you'll be fine. Pace isn't important, these are social runs where we'll have walks up the hills and stay together. We operate an all is welcome policy on our Sunday 'Guided Trail' runs with a little caveat of if you're not joined up as a £5 per year member you drop a little donation into the Friends of Youlgrave School charity box (in the shops and pubs) when you next pass through
