NAV4: Navigation for Runners
A one day course for those wishing to gain and develop a full range of skills for safe and efficient off-road running.
Get to understand the basics of maps, master your compass, and get away from trails and marked routes.
With a big dose of navigation training, we’ll also look at a range of issues from clothing and equipment, route selection, techniques, trail and mountain running ethos, together with the all important safety and environmental issues.
Don’t panic about keeping up – this is not a physical training day! The course is conducted at a brisk walking pace with some jogging and maybe downhill running where appropriate. This course is ideal for those with some trail running experience and who wish to venture into more remote areas or tackle unmarked race routes, adventure races or mountain marathons.
The course runs on a 4:1 client tutor ratio, and places are limited.
Venue/Time: Askham, near Penrith, Keswick. Time 10am - 3pm.
