Welcome to RunSpeyside

2022 – Rest Year for RunSpeyside

2022 is going to be a rest year for RunSpeyside so we are taking time out from guided running. Like training it’s time for an off season despite how much you want to keep going 100%

We have some limited edition RunSpeyside neck gaiters available, have a look at here to see what they look at and how to order yours. You can still browse our website for an idea of the great running to be found locally, if you are travelling further afield then Running Tours.Net  is a directory of running tour providers throughout the world.

It’s been such an adventure these last few years – mountains of thanks to all the runners, businesses, friends and family who’ve supported us so far and chances are you’ll bump into one or both of us pottering round the hills and trails soon.

Kind regards and happy running, Jenny and Dave.

What we love to do!

Let us know when and how far suits you, we will devise a bespoke tour of your own designed to show you the best trails, scenery and points of interest in the area. This can be for an individual or for small groups. If you prefer choose from one of our special events.  Read on to see what we offer and take a look at some of our favourite tours to get an idea of some of the superb trails just waiting for you to explore!

A RunSpeyside tour makes a super gift for those special occasions!
