Terms & Conditions
What we will provide
We will provide guided runs and swims of a length agreed in advance by the individual or group. We will make sure you are guided by an experienced runner/swimmer/mountain leader with considerable navigation experience and local knowledge. All guides will carry the basic safety equipment advised by the Fell Runners Association and Long Distance Walkers Association (full body waterproofs, map, compass, whistle, spare thermal top, extra water food/gels) and swim guides/kayak safety team will be equipped with recommended safety equipment.
What you need
You need to remember your running shoes and wetsuit, as these are the most difficult things to borrow! We can recommend reasonably grippy trail shoes to assist you on muddy slippy descents – road shoes however may also be appropriate. A small running backpack or bum bag is useful to carry your favourite snacks/drinks if we are running long distances. A change of clothes (useful to have your own towel and some spare clothes to pull on if we go into a café or pub at the end of a long run). A wetsuit and liner for extra warmth and comfort, as well as swim gloves and cap. Anything else you wish to bring, such as a tow buoy, be our guest!

Outdoor activities can be hazardous and it is important that all participants understand that there are risks involved in off road running and open water swimming. Routes can be slippy, muddy, icy and almost always uneven, while water can be choppy, prone to currents and tidal elements. Trips and falls are common even for experienced runners and minor injuries are not unusual. It is particularly easy to fall if you are not wearing footwear with sufficient grip. We expect all participants to take the advice of the guides at all times. It is also essential that participants are sure that they are fit enough to run or swim the distance that they have agreed to run/swim. Participants should take medical advice if they are in any doubt about their health status. Wild Coast Escapes is an activity travel company specialising in off-road running, open water swimming and yoga.

All running/swimming takes place in a rural environment where the effect of the weather can be particularly severe, even during the summer. The weather can limit what we are able to do, and client safety is our first consideration. There may be occasions where we are unable to complete a planned route due to the prevailing weather. In these circumstances we will offer an alternative route. However, running/swimming will be offered whatever the weather and if the forecast is bad, please bring appropriate clothing and footwear.
