This Practical navigation session is a follow from the online Masterclasses delivered by Nav Guy. It is for trail and ultra runners who want to sort out those navigation skills! Perhaps you are doing an ultra event where navigation skills are required. We aim to put all the theory into practice! It is better to have taken one of the online classes first, but its not essential. If in doubt please contact us first before booking. The course starts in Lewknor, Oxon and goes into The Chiltern Hills around Aston Rowant Nature Reserve and beyond.

We’ll then have 4 hours of practical navigation training. We wont be running all this time though. There’ll be plenty of ongoing discussion, demonstration and explanation. We’ll cover the following:
At the end of the session your skill level and confidence will be much higher - and confidence is a big part of navigation!
