• There will be a variety of pursuits on offer throughout the daytime on Saturday – from running to biking, walking or exploring the local area. Again, to help with the planning, we will ask for an indication of your interests when you make your final payment.

There will be a morning run on offer plus an activity in the afternoon before heading back to St Albans.

‘The weekend away was fantastic, brilliant value for money and great company. Good accommodation and the food laid on was great.’

‘Everything about it was excellent. The right amount of planned activities with options for those of us that prefer cake to 10 K trail runs!’
