of trails to choose from, and a huge variety of terrain
to run on. We offer a great balance of running, coaching,
runners navigation, race event strategy advice, preparation
and top tips.

offers exceptional value and contact, so you are looked
after, and get the most out of the weekend. We cap numbers at 8 maximum on any course date.
