Fell & Trail Running Day 27-May-2012
We (Spectrum Striders) are helping host another "Introduction to Fell running" session at Delamere Forest on Sunday 27th May. It will be FREE and will run from 10 am to 4pm.
You will learn what kit you need, you will learn how to run down steep hills; you will learn about sports nutrition for the runner. To use up any spare energy we will take a few ability based groups for a run in Delamere as the last session. We hope to include some navigation and other skill sessions in the morning.
We expect have 40 to 60 taking part and we hope that 20 of those runners will be from Spectrum Striders. This is your chance to try off road running. We will have some of the regular fell (and trail) runners going too as we want to improve but we hope to share our enthusiasm for off road running with a greater portion of the Club.
The lead coach is Jackie Newton, supported by a Sports nutritionist, Richard Othen. Tea and coffee will be provided free, but please bring your own lunch. The course is based from ’The Classroom’ behind Delamere Forest Visitors Centre, Linmere, CW8 2JD. There willl be no car parking charge for attendees to the course.
There have been two courses like this already. The Macclesfield session with 40 people was superb which is why we have volunteered to help host this day. So please, all you road runners, come and try it. The key training session will be coached running downhill running on steep (and easy) gradients.
Here is the draft schedule:
