Beginners Gin and Trail Running Weekend Black Mountains 29th to 31st July 2022


Out of stock



Come and join us in the Brecon Beacons for a fantastic weekend trail running on some of the most spectacular trails in this stunning location and we’ll be visting a local Gin Distillery too!

It’s going to be a really fun couple of days out in a very beautiful part of the Black Mountains, I do a fair amount of running out there and know some lovely trails which show this beautiful part of the world at its best.

And if you’ve already heard of my trail running events you’ll know how popular they are and the high standard we set, which has earnt us 130 plus 5 star reviews on Facebook. Read on to find out why our guests keep coming back…

The weekend is designed for beginners who haven’t done any trail running or perhaps have tried some and love it, and want to run in a no-pressure environment while enjoying some stunning views.

For anyone who enjoys a gin then you’ll love this weekend, as the Black Mountains boasts several phenominal distilleries!

The terrain is mixed with some height gain but won’t be overly challenging and we won’t be running up any mountains!

So apart from running what else is included?

Breakfast and lunches are included on Saturday and Sunday and a 2 course evening meal will be provided on Friday and Saturday evenings.

All of our meals are cooked by our private chef and can be catered to your own specific needs, should you have any, and it will all be nutritionally designed for runners.

We will also visit a local distillery, here’s a little more detail about them…

Brecon Gin

This is a fine quality distilled gin using botanicals from the four corners of the world and bottled at Penderyn Distillery using water from the Brecon Beacons National Park.

It contains Welsh Spirit, Juniper Berries, Orange Peel, Cassia Bark, Liquorice Root, Cinammon Bark, Angelica Root, Ground Nutmeg, Coriander Seeds, Lemon Peel and Orris Root Powder.

What do other runners think of my events? Let them tell you themselves in the following video…..

All of the food we provide can be catered to your own specific needs, should you have any, and it will all be nutritionally designed for runners.

I’m a UK Athletics qualified running coach and will be able to provide key info that will improve your trail running style along with the way you run on the roads.

During the weekend I’ve arranged a guest speaker to join us for part of the weekend to provide useful running related information, which I know you’ll find beneficial (previous weekends have included yoga and mindfulness sessions, sports therapy treatments, or Indian Head and Neck massage with Reiki) for this weekend the guest speaker will be very much in keeping with our subject matter…..

What did some of our guests, Samantha and Krishna, think of their weekends with us…?

Next up, you’ll be able to sit in and take advantage of a masterclass on running nutrition. We will cover many of the questions runners ask when it comes to nutrition, how to prepare meals that actually help, what to eat while running, how to avoid upset stomachs while running, what to eat during training, as well as before, during and after your race and also how to provide the right nutrition during a taper period, along with lots of other useful tips and strategies.

In the evening we will also be holding a Private Gin Tasting, with a selection of Welsh gins, and others for you to try, with the opportunity to purchase by the glass afterwards should you wish to.

Accomodation and Location

Your accommodation is also included in the price, and we will be staying at a fantasic bunkhouse in the beautful village of Crickhowell, in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the price is £249 per person for the full weekend.

Should you want to secure a private room for 2, 3 or 4 people these are available on a per person supplemental basis, please send a message for more details about this.

I look forward to running with you!
