Our 2020 one day ‘Navigation and Mountain Running Skills’ courses: 

Dates to be confirmed soon. Please contact us for more details or to register on our waiting list.

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.

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