After all the hard work we put into getting to the top of a climb, the reward should come in the descent, letting gravity do the work as we flow effortlessly over rocks and roots under perfect control. However all too often we meet runners who dread the downhill knowing that they will feel uncertain and slower than they would like. Whatever your level, let this course free you from the downhill demons. 

What to expect from the course

The day will take two parts, a morning workshop and an afternoon trail run. 

The morning will be spent on trails immediately above Aviemore, taking our time to work on foundation running techniques and building confidence running down an easy slope with the brakes on and off. We will add some key tools for cornering and dealing with loose or slippy terrain. This will be an active but not exhausting session, leaving some life in the legs for a short run on some local trails after lunch to put the new skills into practice. 

Based near Aviemore we have easy access to the mountains and a huge variety of trails and locations that we can use for our training so we will tailor the afternoon session to suit the group and conditions.

This course includes a full day of instruction and does not include accommodation, allowing you the flexibility to choose your own.

This course is ideally paired with our Mountain Navigation & Safety the day after to make a perfect weekend in the mountains. Book onto both days and receive a 10% discount off both days.
