Skyrunning is one of the most adventurous ways to enjoy the mountains and combines fell, trail and mountain running with some steep exposed scrambling and lung-busting ascents. Its an incredible experience and is becoming even more popular now the UK hosts some of the premier events like the Glencoe Skyline, Snowdon Skyline and the Mamores VK.
Our Skyrunning Introduction is a two-day course looking at everything you need to begin Skyrunning either for competition or your own personal enjoyment. We will look at planning, equipment, scrambling skills and navigation in the mountains. We will also look at how to manage risk and what to do if you or a partner has an accident.
The first day is all about introducing you to general mountain running technique, discussing mountain safety and what to wear on a day of Skyrunning. You will also get a chance to test your nerves on some steeper running terrain and receive coaching on your footwork and movement on rock. (Grade 1 scramble)
This day is all about introducing you to steep and exposed ground so you can learn how to move safely and confidently. We will also look at yesterdays techniques and build your knowledge so you can finish the two days with a wealth of important information and techniques.
All our Instructors are passionate mountain runners and have competed in numerous events like the Skyline series, LDMT and OMM. They are also qualified Mountaineering Instructor and Mountain Leaders who spend most of their free time running in the mountains.
