Run the Alps Trail Running Guide Network

Book a Trail Running Guide Anywhere in the Alps

No matter where you want to trail run in the Alps, we have a guide for you!

Run the Alps has developed an Independent Guide Network that works in conjunction with our Run the Alps staff guides. Together, these talented guides cover the entire Alps region and a number of adjacent areas as well. 

The independent guides you find here are highly skilled, as evidenced by their guiding credentials.  

To get started, read about the guides available in the region you’d like to trail run. Then, pick a guide. Whether you select Run the Alps or an Independent Guide, you’ll then complete a short form and we’ll be back in touch with you!

Legalese: When you hire an independent guide, the relationship is always between you and the guide. Run the Alps cannot be liable for anything that might go wrong.
