Event description
Want to try trail running but don't know where to start? Let me take you running whilst teaching you the skills you need to hit the trails.

About this Event

I realise that leaving the roads behind and hitting the trails can be daunting at first, so that’s why I’ve organised these runs. They will be aimed at trail running novices and we will cover what kit you need, technique, and tips and advice on how to enjoy trail running. I have lots of experience of trail running and will take the time to answer any questions you may have.

FAQ's

Distance?

3-4 miles - Please note that whilst aiming to be as accurate to this as possible, in some circumstances I may be slightly over or under this mileage, but this will only be very slightly.

What pace will we be running at?

These runs are aimed at people that are hitting the trails for the first time, so the pace will be slow enough that I can answer any questions you may have and so that everyone feels comfortable, these events are about having fun not racing, and will feature plenty of breaks to answer questions, and to catch our breath. There are a couple of hills at Whitlingham, and depending on the groups ability I may give some lessons on how to run uphill and downhill if wanted.

How long will we be running for?

I allow 2 hours for this event, but this will depend on the abilities of the people attending. I want everyone to be able to enjoy it without feeling rushed, and to have time to answer any questions that you may have.

Parking?

There is plenty of parking in the main car park where we will meet, this is a pay and display car park so please bring some change for the machines. There is also free on street parking nearby.

Toilets?

There are public toilets in the car park

What will I need?

We will be running over a variety of terrain and, whilst these runs will not be over too technical, terrain I would advise trail shoes if possible, but road shoes will do if we’ve had dry weather. If you need any advice on shoes before joining me on a run, please feel free to send me a message and I will do my best to advise.

A waterproof jacket and, depending on the weather conditions, sun cream.

Enough water and snacks to last, with preferably at least 500ml of water.

Most importantly a willingness to learn and have fun.

Refunds?

Although I do not offer refunds in general, if the event is cancelled due to conditions out of my control, where possible I will give at least 24 hours notice, and I will offer a transfer to another event or an 100% refund.
