Fell Running Taster Session

Any athletes who may fancy a go at the fells but are a bit wary about entering a race are invited to a come and try it session on Saturday 29th October. This session will be open to everyone, inexperienced or not, and will be aimed at explaining what our sport is about in a relaxed and easy manner. Tony and Richie will be leading the session and with around 70 years experience between us we should be able to offer some help! We plan to have an easy trot over a couple of hills and, weather permitting, point out the various summits and race routes we can observe. We will also try and answer any queries on the sport that runners may have.
The plan is to meet at the Brandywell Road near to the junction with the Mountain Road at 9.30am and cover a route over Beinn Y Phott to Carraghan and back. This will take around 1 hour at an easy pace. If the weather forecast is poor we may switch to a lower route so keep a watch on Facebook next Friday 28th. All runners are advised to carry a waterproof top and bottoms. All welcome.
