About the Event

Conquer the Wild Hike & Trail Run

Our Conquer the Wild events are typically up hills and in moorland. These longer hikes and fell runs have more mud, more hills - all of which make for more laughs and awesome photos!

These routes typically cover a distance of 10-12 miles and take place on the last Saturday of the month.

Hikers are Runners start at the same locations, but head out on the routes in opposite directions, passing each other along the route for a group photo opportunity.

Led by a qualified Hill and Moorland team with a wealth of experience and expertise.

The Conquer the Wild events are about discovering and exploring new places whilst completing a challenging route with the camaraderie of other like-minded people around you – there should be no desire to ‘beat’ anyone or break any records.

The event typically takes up to 3hrs for the run and up to 5.5/6hrs for the hike, depending on pace and enjoyment – As this is a supportive, group event accommodating a range of abilities, please consider the latest time advertised if making plans after the event.

Leave the planning and navigation to us and just enjoy venturing out into the open enjoying the views and company.
