    Navigation and Mountain Running Skills

    A One Day course for novice and intermediate hill runners.

    Cost: £65.00 – please email me for more dates

    • An intensive one day introductory course for those wishing to gain and develop a full range of skills for safe and efficient off-road running.   With a big dose of navigation training, we’ll also look at a range of issues from clothing and equipment, route selection, techniques, trail and mountain running ethos, together with the all important safety and environmental issues.

    • Don’t panic about keeping up – this is not a physical training day!  The course is conducted at a brisk walking pace with some jogging and maybe downhill running where appropriate.  This course is ideal for those with some trail running experience and who wish to venture into more remote areas or tackle unmarked race routes, adventure races or mountain marathons.

    • Courses are generally based near Keswick, Staveley or the Ullswater valley.  Alternatively, we base ourselves from Reeth, Swaledale or on The Longmynd in South Shropshire.

    • Each day is a fun packed and busy 10.00am-4.00pm programme.  The course fee includes use of a Silva compass, A4 map print-outs and tea and coffee.

    • Sessions are run at a maximum of four students to one tutor; an excellent ratio.

    • Places are limited – book two places at least three weeks before your course date and the cost is just £100. 

    • Send us an email now with any questions or request a further dates

    • Our courses make an ideal and unique Christmas or birthday present for any runner.
