The pleasure of a long day in the hills
If you are preparing for an ultra & lack the confidence to navigate or plan a route that will offer training pressure as well as stunning scenery, then these runs are for you
These events are designed for runners with some experience in off-road running but need help with technical terrain & preparing for ultra races or challenges. We take care of the navigation but we do impart the skill to those that are keen to learn.
You do need to have an adventurous nature & be prepared to try new things in mountainous environments where the weather can be very challenging. You'll also need to trust your guides decision on route choices if the weather is severe.
During the weekend we may take you over exposed ridges & high peaks (weather permitting). If you have anxiety about heights, don't worry, joining us will help you overcome those fears, but you must be up for it!
You should be a runner who trains regularly & can manage long periods of time on your legs (4-6 hours). The pace will be steady, where the runs are focused on "time on legs", so don't be concerned if you think you may be slow.
