Get off the tarmac and into some of the UK’s most glorious wild places with new trail book Wild Running. I’ve got five copies to give away, to get you inspired to lace up your trainers and go exploring.
Stuck in a bit of a 5k-round-the-park rut? You need this book. Wild Running (£16.99) is essentially a guide to how to jog through some of the UK’s most stunning landscapes, with over 150 runs listed. All of the trails are beautifully presented and graded by difficulty, so you can dip in and find one near you to suit your ability. If you’re still a bit of a trail running newb like me there are lovely long runs for Sunday afternoons, whilst seasoned pros can plan harcore adventures or find cool new routes to explore. The book’s also packed with gorgeous photography, informative OS maps and terrain data, plus GPX downloads so that you can take trail guides with you on your phone.
Wild Running is published by Wild Things Publishing, makers of the awesome Wild Swimming books, so you know it’s going to be pretty ace. Be warned, though – you’ll get wanderlust for all those mountain, forest and coast paths as yet untrodden.
HOW TO ENTER: This competition is now closed. The winners, chosen at random, are Katie S, Martin Williams, Vikki R, Lisa Pratt and James Mackeddie. Congratulations!
