Organiser's Description

Intro to Trail Running 

Sunday 15th September 2019, 1:30pm
Meet at Christies Garden Centre, Fochabers, IV32 7PF

This 1.5-2 hour session aims to introduce the joys of getting off the beaten track, and help provide you with the skills and knowledge to tackle your first trails with confidence.

During the session we'll touch on the basics of:

• Running Technique - warm up, foot placement, posture and cadence.
• The Ups & Downs - safe and efficient ways to take on steeper ground.
• Technical Terrain - we'll discuss some different types of terrain you may encounter (loose ground, rocks & boulders, deep mud) and how to safely navigate them.
• What Next - essential kit, offsetting the demands of trail running, strengthening, and reducing risk of injury.

Required Experience:

If you can Parkrun, you can Trail Run!

Sessions are suitable for those new to running, or regular runners just wanting a new experience. During the run we'll cover 5-7km depending on group ability, with regular stops for discussion, rest, or simply to enjoy our surroundings.
Your confirmation email will detail any kit requirements / recommendations, along with an itinerary for the day.


Please note: Minimum numbers are required to allow this workshop to take place. Should the required numbers not be reached your entry fee will be refunded in full.
