This weekend will give you all the essential skills needed for success at your next Mountain Marathon whether you are a first timer or experienced competitor searching for that extra edge.

The weekend will include 2 full days of tuition from Elite mountain marathon competitors who are also experienced mountain navigation coaches.

We will explore map reading and compass skills as well as route choice and navigation tactics. The scales will be out as we look at the mandatory kit list and experiment with different options for clothing, tents, stoves and food.  What does it take to get a racing pack below 4kg?
