Two countries in one weekend! Join a small group of all abilities for a weekend of trail running in the Sharr Mountain range bordering Kosovo and Albania. Hosted by Nick Butter, you'll stay in a peaceful three-star hotel in Kosovo upon arrival, and spend the second night across the border in Albania in a typical mountain guesthouse - having run there. Arrive on Friday evening and meet the group over dinner. Saturday and Sunday are scheduled for just over a half-marathon distance - all trail running. You'll jog along the panoramic range finishing with traditional mountain food. Before you head home, it's a short looped 13km run post breakfast in the mountain once more. To finish you'll have a superb lunch and time to take in the city.

Day 1 - Friday 20th September

Welcome to Kosovo. If you're looking for flights - you'll need to fly into Pristina Airport anytime before 22:00 on Friday evening (20th September). We suggest you arrive either the day before (19th - there's easy low cost flights) or arrive anytime on the Friday. We will see you in arrivals at 22:30 Friday 20th September. Transport will take you to your accommodation for the first night in the heart of the stunning Sharr National Park. (We'll stop for late night food on route). Nick will host a breakfast briefing the following morning ahead of your stunning weekend on the trails of Kosovo and Albania. As always, every run has an inclusive adaptable pace and can be discussed individually.There is no pressure. You’ll have some time to get to know each other over traditional food and a fire pit (weather permitting). Please note: Although your first night will be in a hotel - you will be sharing rooms for the majority of the weekend.

Day 2 - Saturday 21st September

Set your alarms for 07:30 and be out the door for 09:00. As the sun rays are finding their way through the rocky mountains surrounding the accommodation, you will be on the trail in just a few seconds. The 23km trail will take you through the remote terrains of the Sharr National Park. Expect to snap pictures of endless mountain ranges since the nearest villages are miles away. The only traffic expected is the hundreds of sheep, their shepherds, and their dogs. We will pack your lunch and together decide on the best spot to enjoy our deserved rest. Reaching the destination means that we have completed a half marathon distance, having crossed into Albania. Settle into your cozy mountain chalet, rest, shower, and change. Dinner includes a rich traditional menu satisfying all tastes and preferences. The rest of the night is planned to relax by the fire under the stars.

Day 3 - Sunday 22nd September

A slightly earlier start on the second day as we plan to leave the chalets and have breakfast by 08:00. The trail ahead of you is another 23km with plenty of up and down through the Albanian side of Sharr mountain range. Lunch is packed with some snacks to make the trail experience refreshing and full of energy. There will be plenty of time to rest those tired legs in the afternoon before heading back to Kosovo via a short road trip. The evening is set for a special dinner and a city stroll in the picturesque old town of Prizren. Each run will be led by Nick and have local guides and photographers - so take advantage of their presence and come away with knowledge and some good snaps.

Day 4 - Monday 23rd September

The last day takes place in a completely different landscape. After an early breakfast, you are led out of the door by Nick at 09:00. A short 13km city run by the castle, that continues in the green area suburb will help to shake the 42km in your legs so far. As always, you are welcome to skip the run and take on one of our places-to-visit recommendations. From 11:30 we'll begin saying our goodbyes and head to the airport where the weekend concludes. If time permits, (depending on when you're flying home, we have an optional luxury spa afternoon to decompress).
