Women Run Strong - Glencoe Weekend

06 Oct 18

Join Women Run Strong and our guides Girls on Hills for a fantastic weekend of  amazing scenic running in Glencoe. Enjoy treats and good company on and after the runs.

Do you love Scotland’s wild places? Do you dream of running through them but don’t know where to start? Are you also a little nervous to go out there alone?

Join your friends in the Women Run Strong Tribe for the perfect trail running weekend. You will never feel alone in the hills if you are with us. We believe that you are #strongerthanyouthink and although it will be challenging you will be amazed at what you can achieve.

Women Run Strong will take you safely on scenic trails in the Glencoe area with the help of experienced local guides, Girls on Hills. You will be supported all the way and don’t need to worry about where we’re going. We plan to tackle the Devil's Staircase and some amazing trails around Buachaille Etive Beag.

 PRICE: £180 pp

(deposit payable £45 NOW, remainder due by bank transfer before 31 August)

Over two days we will take to the trails, the pace will be sociable and we will have time to take great photos and fuel up on jelly babies and healthy food too.

After the run on day 1 your will be treated to massage and yoga/stetching. After that we will have time to relax together and relive the experience over a glass of bubbly and delicious dinner.

Our second day will start with our Women Run Strong expert talking about avoiding injury and answering your questions. A short indoor session on navigation will get us ready for our second trail where we can start to put the navigation skills to use. Girls on Hills will still lead the groups so there is no danger of actually getting lost.

After the run and clean up we will enjoy a late lunch and de-brief. We will close with a review of gear to take on the trails.

You need to be able to run a 10km trail confidently to enjoy participating in this weekend. Participants will be divided into two groups according to trail running experience and fitness. The maximum size of each group 10 pax. We will be out in the hills for 3-4 hours on the first day and 2-3 hours on the second day, depending on the weather and experience of the group.
