About Our Tours

Guided, self-guided, or custom?

Run the Alps offers a variety of trail running tours to meet a wide range of skills and interests. Which trail running tour is right for you?

Self-Guided Tours

Prefer to travel solo, with a partner, or with friends? You should be reasonably confident in your abilities to follow trail descriptions and handle the challenges of trail running in a mountainous environment. Self-guided tours are a great way to explore a new area on your own terms and at your own pace.

Guided Tours

Guided tours are organized trips led by experienced trail running mountain guides. Consider a guided trip if you’d prefer not to worry about planning each day’s outing, or if you’re uncertain about navigating trails and staying comfortable in mountain weather.

Custom Tours

Have unique needs or interests, or a partner who is less keen on trail running? Each year, we arrange custom trail running trips to a variety of regions in the Alps, often incorporating other European destinations and activities.
