Info: New entries for this event closed on Wednesday 15th April 2020.
Due to the continuing uncertainty around the near future, all of our bookings are on hold.
We have postponed all courses in April and at this stage we can’t be sure when we will be able to open our courses again. A decision about our courses from May onwards will now happen on a rolling basis, with a final call, 2 weeks before the course date.
We will not be taking any more money for bookings until the course is confirmed to run. If you are keen to attend any future course, please add your name to the waiting list and once the course is opened you will be asked to confirm your booking with a payment.
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 all about the demands of these events.
We are also highly qualified and experienced Mountaineering and Climbing Instructors with the essential training and experience needed to help to improve your scrambling technique 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.Â
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.
