About Trail Outlaws

Who are Trail Outlaws.

Trail Outlaws Philosophy

At Trail Outlaws we are passionate about Trail Running and the benefits and positivity it can bring to ours and others lives. We are both avid trail runners of all distances and have been for many years, enjoying events all over the UK. We love the fact there is no elitism in trail running and we have seen first hand, the camaraderie involved in this fast growing sport. And we bring that to our events, encouraging and cheering on runners of all levels and abilities.

We believe the trails and national parks of the North should be enjoyed by all, this is why our events take part in National Parks, National Trust land, Forestry Commission Land, Sites of Special Scientific Interest. As we believe these little gems go unlooked by runners as a whole, and we want to encourage all to enjoy them responsibly.

As a North East based events company we also believe in using local suppliers for our event to promote Trail Running in the North East as much as possible, that is why we have teamed up and partnered with companies like SCOTT Sports as our event partner, whose UK office is based right here in the North East.

D & P Trophies as our event trophy suppliers who are a North East company.

Northumbrian Water and Forestry Commission as our event partners at the Dark Skies Run at Kielder Water and Forest Park.

Director & Evangelist

Tim Bateson

After the death of my father in law from a heart attack, I decided to have a long hard look at my own lifestyle and ever expanding waistline. So I decided running might be a way to shift some weight. I found running around on the tarmac hard work and not very inspirational, so I took to the trails and started to rediscover the joy of movement, especially when running in remote places.

The fun of just running has ultimately led to taking part in more fell races, trail marathons and ultramarathons.

After being involved in a car crash, I was unable to maintain my 16 stone weight lifters physique and was looking for a way to keep fit. So a friend at work suggested I try running back in 2009.

It was not long before I progressed to running on trails and that is where the running bug really took hold. I love to run on challenging courses of all distances. But enjoy the challenge of long distance races of 100 miles plus the most. As a professional PTI for Her Majesty's Prison Server, I also include weight lifting into my training, which has helped maintain core strength and reduce injuries.
