Trail & Off-road Running

Are you getting bored of running on the same old noisy and traffic clogged streets?

As a qualified UK Athletics Leader in Running Fitness I can introduce you to a new way of enjoying running, trail or off road.
I have been running for twelve years on road before switching to trails, tracks, fells, paths and trods.

Trail running has grown in popularity in the last few years and an increasing number of runners are now becoming converted to trails and off road paths.

The rewarding nature of escaping the busy pavements and running through the countryside can revitalise your training and give you a wider scope of races to participate in.

Trail running benefits from getting into the countryside environment on marked paths without a massive reliance on navigation skills.

Just q quick email to say thank you for the lovely weekend trail running in the Peak district. We have both picked up loads of little tips on map reading and won't be getting lost again. ha. Great information on nutrition as well. Can you book the weather for our next course as well Matt?

Running off road allows you to build up a range of new skills and techniques that will make your runs more thought provoking and interesting.

I aim to cover the following with you:

Basic navigation skills and route planning
Clothing and equipment (Footwear, bags etc…)
Nutrition & hydration before, during and after training / races
Descent techniques for different kinds of terrain (grass, rock, scree and forest)

The focus of this course is to educate and build your confidence in a sociable environment.
Here in the Peak District we are blessed with an abundance of easily accessible trails where you can enjoy short plods or on epic adventures.

As with all my courses I can tailor the day to your requirements so if there is something here that you would like to focus on please tell me.
