Trail

Welcome to ICXCAC Trail running!

We are regular members of ICXCAC who enjoy the unique pleasures, adventures, and challenges that trail running has to offer. Our members vary from seasoned ultra-runners to beginners discovering trail running for the first time, and everything in between.

What is trail running?

Trail running is a bit of a catch-all term for a huge variety of off-road running including fell running, sky running, and all sorts of other adventures. The common denominator of all these is the desire to get off the beaten track, seeking the most beautiful and awe-inspiring scenery to tackle – through field and forest, over moor and mountain. Trail running emphasises personal pleasure and achievement, be that running further and climbing higher than you’ve done before, exploring new places, or competing in challenging and unique races. Imagine running, but more fun!

What do we do?

As a team we aim to share our passion for all things trail, getting new members involved in the sport, and to support our runners to develop, compete, and reach new peaks! This year we will be training and racing regularly in London and the surrounding countryside. You’d be amazed how easily you can reach some pretty spectacular landscapes from the centre of the capital! On top of this, a crucial part of the ICXCAC trail running scene is the weekend escapes, training camps and races set both further afield in the UK and overseas. Highlights from the last few years include Snowdonia, the Canary Islands and Chamonix
