Snowdonia is host to some of the best mountain running in the UK and with a mixture of rolling mountain sides and sharp rocky ridges, it certainly has something for everybody. Our Mountain running skills course is a perfect way to develop your confidence so you can run further and faster in the mountains.
Ideally to attend this course you will have plenty of trail or road running experience but its open to any runner who has a good level of fitness and can run about 10km on undulating terrain. The day will have plenty of rests and the pace will be kept slow to ensure that more focus is put on the learning rather than fitness or speed.
Our instructors for this course have a large amount of experience running in the mountains and have competed in a number of races including the Mourne Skyline, OMM, Lake District Mountain Trial (LDMT) and a mass of other events. All of our instructors hold the Mountain Leader qualification as minimum, and have a vast amount of experience teaching navigation and mountain running in the mountains.
The day will be split into several workshops looking at the following topics.
- Clothing, equipment (What to pack, how to keep warm, how to pack light)
- Navigation for mountain runners. (Learn how to speed up your navigation)
- Downhill running workshop. (Improve your confidence running downhill)
- Training plans (How to get the best out of your body)
- Fast packing (Multi day runs and what equipment to take)
