Would you like to try trail running but don't have the confidence to head out alone? Have you tried running off-road but feel in need of some advice on technique and navigation? Are you interested in trying out some new routes in an area you've never run in before, or do you simply you fancy a weekend away running in a beautiful place with friends, or meeting new, like-minded people? Then join us on a trail-running adventure!
A typical weekend:
Friday afternoon/ evening: you'll arrive, settle into your accommodation, meet the other runners, and have dinner. There might be a quick visit to the pub if there is one nearby or possibly a headtorch run before bed
Saturday: after breakfast, you'll have a trail-running based workshop, on a topic such as navigation, kit or nutrition, and go out for a trail run (with a skills/technique focus) before lunch. In the afternoon there'll be some relaxation time, another run, dinner, and maybe a visit to the pub
Sunday: after breakfast, you'll have another trail-running-based workshop, a final trail run and lunch, before saying your goodbyes and heading home
The exact programme will depend on the focus and location of the weekend, and the weather, as well as the needs and abilities of the group. On all weekends, you'll leave having improved your skills and confidence as a trail runner, made some new running friends, and having had a lot of fun too!
