If you like the idea of being able to run in the mountains but have never started then this will be the perfect day for you.
We are two highly experienced top women fell runners who are passionate about getting more women to enjoy this sport. Both of us have competed internationally and have been involved with fell running for many years and… we both just love being out in the hills. We will facilitate a well-structured, confidence-building day introducing you to fell running.
Fell Running is… simply brilliant
Fell running is exhilarating: leave your world-worries behind, be out in nature, have a view, feel the elements and be away from the traffic. We think when you’ve tried it that you won’t want to go back to the tarmac! This is a day where we get you to find your ‘off road’ feet.
We will start at 9.30 am taking you through various elements of fell running in a well-planned day. There will be practical outdoor sessions as well as indoor seminars.
There’s the chance to deal with your insecurities and help you to work on your perceived weaknesses as well as giving you some enthusiastic ‘can-do’ attitude.
Covering technique, mental approach, fitness and confidence there will also be chance look at kit and touch on nutrition.
And … you will get one of our specially designed Buffs too!
All ages are welcome and all abilities.
And … please rest assured, this is not a day about eyeballs out speed, discomfort or running straight up a mountain as soon as you arrive!
We imagine that you will have done some running and that you are able to jog 5k as minimum. The speed doesn’t matter. This is not a day for elite athletes.
You’ll be given a checklist of what to bring when you book. Drinks will be provided and the use of a kitchen – you will need to bring lunch and snacks.
We will be based in the beautiful village of LLanbedr in the heart of the Black Mountains (Postcode NP8 1SR) between Table Mountain and Sugarloaf Mountain with stunning views across the Usk valley.
It is approximately 1 hr to Bristol and 45 minutes to Cardiff.
Abergavenny has a train station and we can arrange a pick-up for you if this is your preferred mode of transport. The station is about 15 minutes away by car.
