Event description

Description

Come join us with fully insured fell running guides and make new friends in Snowdon for an introduction to Trail Running if you don't mind getting muddy, love beautiful scenery & want to broaden your training, then fell running is for you!

Fitness-wise, as long as you run regularly & can manage 10 miles in a single run then you'll be fine. The running sessions are focussed more on teaching you skills, so they are very steady and there is often quite a bit of stop-start. It's normal to hike the big uphills. We have strategies to deal with runners of different paces so don't be concerned if you think you may be too slow... and if you are super fit and worried that you'll be a little frustrated with the pace, we'll recommend how to manage this.

During this run, you will be exposed to the different types of terrain you need to tackle when running on the trail where we'll give each of you some one-on-one time to address any specific technique improvements. There will be some steep uphills and downhills where you'll learn the strategies for attacking the ascents and descents. At the end of the run, we discuss stretching and injury prevention.

It's time to navigate around your planned course, while we accompany you to make sure you stay on track. The run itself is a very easy pace and involves stops to address navigation aspects. We cover around 8-10 miles on the trail and if the weather allows we will be getting up on the tops so expect a minimum of 1000m ascent. During the run, we will also discuss mountain safety and run through some scenarios for what can go wrong and how to get out of trouble.

Afterwards you'll be able to have a shower, freshen up and then enjoy lunch at the cafe nearby & say our farewells.
