About the event


A weekend of trail running, coaching and workshops for the YPOM running group.

All sessions will be run by myself, an experienced ultra runner, trail running coach and Salomon athlete.

This weekend is designed to teach you every aspect of trail running, you will learn how to pace your races, tackle the hills in the correct way, improve your technique, basic navigation, work on nutrition and much more.

The whole weekend is a trail running question and answer session and I can guarantee that every question you have will be answered.

The bunkhouse is nestled into the side of Leith Hill, the highest point in south east England, and has awesome trails on the doorstep. Leith Hill is just 30 miles from London. ​

We will run at a social pace and walk the hills if we have to. This is not a race! We will stay as a group so if you are a faster runner, please expect to run slower than you would normally. 

Previous trail running experience is not necessary. The terrain will be hilly and varied. The views will be incredible.
