We're opening for 1:1 and 1:5 singles and group sessions - inline with all the CV19 Guidelines and Government advice/restrictions!

Jumping For Joy

With the new restrictions lift by the UK Government, concerning England's guidelines [different for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland] we are now able to host 1:1 and group sessions of up to 1:5.

We've all had a great break, lots of introspective time and its all been a little scary and crazy. No matter your thoughts on it all, its been a time, that likely, non if us will experience again in our life times.

We know its been tough, we know its been upsetting and we have felt it just the same as you.

We've been very lucky to be hibernating up in the Glenridding Valley and we have felt the blessings of the sun and what ever powers are out there to help us through these times. Thankfully the UK weather has been on top form and flexed its sun muscles for weeks and weeks.

Now it seems that the awful CV19 strain of the Corona Virus is finally on the back-foot and thankfully the UK government have offered some clear advice on what 'outdoor providers' can now do.

Guided running on our last Ultra Trail Skills Weekend - 13/14/15 March 2020

After carefully reading the new advice, delivered on the 1st of June, we are happy to say that Mountain Run will be returning to some form of normality by being able to deliver 1:1 guided adventures, 1:1 skills sessions plus group session for courses that are [or can be] mainly valley based.

Please be aware, we are still very conscious about the following:

  • Not putting any undue pressure on the NHS
  • Not putting ourselves or clients at risk, thereby not needing to enact a Mountain Rescue call-out
  • Making sure all out 1:1 sessions and group sessions of up to 5 clients are all correctly risk assessed for CV19 and inline with Government Guidelines in the UK
  • Travel too and from the Lakes
  • The local residents of our local area
  • Making sure you have a safe, but enjoyable learning experience or guided experience.

Meet the Mountain Run Team

With all this in mind, we are now able to deliver the following days and courses:

  • 1:1 guided runs [weather dependant, will determine if the run is low, mid height or high level]
  • 1:1 skills sessions [Mountain Skills, Navigation Skills, Running with Poles sessions, Bob Graham Round skills and mindset]
  • 1:5 Group sessions and bespoke bookings [Running with Poles, Navigation for Runners, Mountain Marathon Navigation and more]

We will stay valley and lower level to mid level for most of the skills sessions, but can guide running adventures on the higher fells on a 1:1 basis. Higher level group sessions are on hold for now, as we are not able to manage these in what we see to be a safe way.

All sessions will be strictly risk assessed with the CV19 virus strain in mind.

Today we are releasing our 'Running with Poles' group session and will be opening up other sessions as and when we have them sorted and loaded to the relevant sites and platforms for you to book.

Bookings are still available on group enquiry basis and you can book directly through our calendar for 1:1 session.

We also still have gift vouchers available if you know someone close to you, who has been suffering mentally during these difficult times, and you want to see them smile in the fells again.
