Skyrunning is a fusion of mountain running, both on and off trails, with easy mountaineering and scrambling.
So to get started we need to be good at both, with all the skills and equipment needed to travel through the mountains as runners, as well as solid movement skills over broken rock and easy climbing terrain. Route finding skills on steep ground and knowing how to plan a route are also essential.
At Trail Running Scotland we have the perfect combination of experience to help introduce you to this extreme challenge. As mountain runners who have competed in a wide variety of events, including the Glencoe Skyline we know how to pick a route that works.
We are also highly qualified Mountaineering and Climbing Instructors with over 10 years experience coaching in all aspects of mountain-craft. Ensuring you get the best quality learning and enjoy a safe adventure.
As well at technique out on the hill we will look at how to train for Skyrunning, including a strength and conditioning session. Learning the importance of staying strong and injury free for those long climbs and pounding descents.
For this course we will work in groups of no more than 4 per instructor, so that we can really look after you all well and tailor the routes to your needs.
Based in Glencoe, the home of Scottish Skyrunning, we have easy access to the mountains and a huge variety of locations that we can use for our training. This course includes two days of instruction and does not include accommodation or meals, allowing you the flexibility to choose your own.
