An Introduction to Off Road Running | Grow your Skills and Knowledge | Based in Glenridding | Price: £40 | Dates: Variable

** If you can run 5km then you will be fine with this course. We won't cover more than 5km running.

Come and learn the skills and techniques for Off Road Running, including Trail, Mountain and Fell Running with our expert instructors and running coaches.

Our whole team spend hours and hours absorbed by running in the fells of the Lake District. Whether you run low level or high level, you'll come across technical trails and the skills, ability and understanding of how to cross these sections of your run efficiently and safely, will mean you can spend more time enjoying the views, and your running, rather than concentrating on how and where to place your feet.

Meet your coaches:

Rob Brown:

Rob loves all types of running and is very skilled across the disciplines of fell, trail, mountain and roads. His highlights include summer and winter Bob Graham Rounds, both Sub 22hrs, winning his first fell race last year, taking 2nd place in the epic Marmot Dark Mountains A Class twice in a row (2016 and 2017) and ticking of the Edinburgh Marathon (on road) in a tidy time of 2:41:00.

Charlie Sproson:

Through Mountain Run, Charlie has coached countless runners to run more confidently and safely over extreme terrain. He specialises in all aspects of trail, sky and ultra running, including running with poles, and has also supported and enabled a growing number of safe and successful Bob Graham rounds: his current count stands at around 20+, including the 6th fastest Bob Graham Round ever recorded (completed in summer 2017), the 3rd fastest Winter Round (January 2017), fastest Ladies Winter Round (December 2018) and Winter Record Round with Kim Collison [another Mountain Run Guide] (December 2019).
