Mountain Running Essentials™ Course Announced!

26th Jan 2012

We are very happy to be working with Joe Faulkner and his team at NAV4 for the provision of our exclusive Mountain Running Essentials™ course.

This course is has been specifically designed for Dragon’s Back Race™ and Great Lakeland 3Day™ competitors but is also highly relevant to mountain marathon competitors and mountain runners.

What makes the Mountain Running Essentials™ course different is that it has been designed by, and all the coaching and instruction will be delivered by, mountain runners.

Joe is a veteran of the 1992 Dragon’s Back Race™ and the original organiser of the GL3D™. Combined with his background in adventure racing, mountain marathons, and providing outdoor instructional courses, he is the ideal person to lead our expert coaching and training. Joe holds the Mountaineering Instructor Award (MIA) and Winter Mountain Leader Award.

Shane Ohly, the current Dragon’s Back Race™ and Great Lakeland 3Day™ Race Director, and 2011 OMM Elite winner, will also be available throughout the weekend to share his experiences and inside knowledge!

The course will take place on the weekend of the 24th and 25th March 2012 based at Plas y Brenin National Mountain Centre in North Wales.

The cost of the Mountain Running Essentials™ course is £139 per person and includes basic accommodation in Moelwyn Cottage on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th. No food or meals are provided but full catering facilities are available in Moelwyn Cottage. It is also possible to eat at Plas y Brenin or in the local pubs.

Trail Running magazine will also be joining us for the weekend as part of their coverage of Dragon's Back Race™.
