Trail running and Navigation for beginners in Snowdonia, this event is the very first to include navigation skills with Geoff who learnt navigation in the high mountains of Snowdonia, Scotland and the Alps and won a number of mountain ultras organised by his club for 7 years on the run.
You’ll be shown and learn techniques that will help you feel more comfortable in the art and science of navigation on the trails and out in the wilds, whether you’re planning a days running on your own, racing your first Ultra that requires navigation skills or simply want to learn map reading and location skills.
We will also be including group coaching in the practice and science of trail running, up and downhill techniques and nutrition, so there’s lot’s to enjoy and learn on this event.

Meals (including 2 course evening meals) will be included in the price and will be prepared and cooked by our private chef who’ll be with us throughout your stay
You’ll also benefit from coaching advice from Geoff, a UK Athletics running coach and author of the Amazon top 10 in category ebook – The Runners Guide to injury Free Running.

Don’t miss out on your chance to have this awesome running experience. This is an ideal event for those who haven’t done much (or any) trail running, we’ll run on local trails which Geoff and the team know well, taking you to parts of Snowdonia few runners get to see.
The pace of the event will be one suitable for anyone new to trail running, we always take things easily and offer plenty of breaks, if for no other reason than to take in the beautiful scenery and no one is ever left ‘at the back’ as my team includes UK Athletics qualified running leaders who are our tail and mid group runners.
