Trail Run with a Run the Alps Guide

Want to go trail running with one of our Run the Alps guides, but only have a few days?

We can help! 

Run the Alps is now offering short-term private guiding.

Here’s how it works. Please read this information carefully. Contact us if you have questions. 

Run the Alps will connect you with our guides for trips of 1-3 days. Your request will be shared with our guide staff, and we will let you know if a guide is available. You can read about our guides here.

Guiding Costs

  • $350 US daily guide fee.
  • Guide expenses during trip, including transportation, accomodations, and meals.
  • Reasonable travel expenses if our guide is not local to the guiding region.

Payment Terms

You will be billed by Run the Alps upon your selection of a guide. Your trip is not considered booked until we receive payment in full. During that time, your guide is free to accept other work. 

If you want to keep your costs to a minimum, consider trail running in an area which is local to one of our guides, so you will avoid guide travel and accomodation costs. Those areas curently include Chamonix, France, Switzerland’s Berner Oberland, and Courmayeur, Italy.

You are responsible for all travel arrangements, including accommodations at your destination. (If you are staying in Chamonix, consider our partner business, The Hub Chamonix.) Run the Alps offers bookings services and support materials only for our guests on our guided and self-guided trips. For information, see here.

Getting Started

Please complete the form below. All fields are mandatory. 

Once we receive your form, we’ll share it with our guides. Our guides are active outdoors professionals, so please allow us one week to get back to you with guiding options. 

Please note: Run the Alps guides are in demand, and are frequently fully scheduled during July and August. You will have better odds of finding a guide available if you can schedule your trip for late June or early September. Trail running season in the Alps runs from early May in Switzerland’s Berner Oberland, to October in Italy’s Dolomites.
