2017......I'm still struggling with a recurrent hamstring injury, perhaps not helped by the 8500m of ascent and descent on the absolutely brilliant Ultra Tour de Monte Rosa which I did in September. I do not want to let down running guests by booking you in and then saying I can't run with you. So I will do SOME running holidays in 2017 but read the advice below:

1. I'm reluctant to book more than a month in advance in case my injury flares up

2. Since I started 'Jelley Legs' in 2011, a lot of new running holiday companies have opened up in the UK. I have decided to concentrate now on providing holidays for 3 groups of runners:

  • runners with very little trail running experience
  • runners who have niggling injuries and who would benefit from my physio assessment skills
  • runners who want to do a mix of activities (only one guided run) and to be free to cycle or walk on the other days

Of course, we always welcome runners and cyclists who want to just come and stay in our accommodation. We can give you plenty of information about easy to follow trail runs and cycle routes in the Yorksire Dales and North York Moors.

If you are heading north for some of the brilliant trail races in the Yorkshire Dales or North York Moors, book in for the week end.  I'm used to making porridge at 4am and you can book a massage for when you return.
