Trail and Outdoors was born out of the trekking and running adventures that its founders Mick Cain and Lee Kemp enjoyed in their spare time. They wanted to be able to offer these experiences of running on beautiful trails and exploring new places with you.

All the team at Trail & Outdoors are passionate about running and exploring new places, meeting new people and sharing these experiences together. Our goal is to help you have fun out on the trails, be this enjoying amazing scenery, improving your running technique or simply making new friends.

Why Choose Trail & Outdoors?

Our experienced team are passionate about running adventures. You will be guided by a lead runner who will guide your route each day. We use nice hotels wherever possible along with mountain lodges and authentic Riads.

Although we advocate getting stuck in each day and using our camps for your training we also do not forget that this is your holiday and emphasise the social side of the trip sitting down to dinner at the end of each day with a glass of wine or pint of beer sharing stories and reflecting on the day.

It is a great opportunity to meet like minded people, share experiences and stories and basically have a whole lot of fun!

Lee Kemp

Lee has always had a love for the outdoors and being active.

From an early age he enjoyed playing a number of different sports but it wasn’t until he hung up his football boots in his mid twenties that he found his true passion – running.

As the terrain became harder, the weather worse or the distance traveled longer the more he loves it!

Lee is a Great Britain and Northern Ireland International trail running athlete having represented his country at the Ultra Trail World Championships. He has won numerous trail and ultra races and set course records.

He is a qualified personal trainer and coach who has helped countless people achieve their training goals, be this running to lose weight, run their first 5k or completing an ultra marathon.
