These ultra trail training weekends are based in the English Lake District in Cumbria, as there are hundreds of kilometers 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.

The instructor ratio for these weekend events is 1:8, which 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. Move quick for spaces!

We designed these courses to provide you the confidence and pre-requisite skills, to have a good chance to finish your first ultra race. Skills covered include; runners navigation, pace planning, night running, nutrition and hydration. You also have the opportunity to run in a mock running event on the Sunday.
Sat Meet at 09:00. Day of ultra trail skills and techniques training, race planning, pacing and efficiency. There's also a night navigation training session in the evening. The key focus of the day is to teach you how to move more efficiently on mountainous terrain, through a mixture of biomechanics and skills.
Sun Briefing, then set off for your second day of ultra trail running, on a longer mountain run. This aims to use all the elements you have learnt. During the day, you'll be running on a route you planned on the higher fells, and will share in the navigation on the route too! We aim to finish by 15:30.
