An easy journey from any major UK airport will open up the Cairngorms, Scotland’s growing centre of trail running. Home to incredible trails of all lengths and abilities. Forested trails, rugged tracks, hilly ridges and everything in-between.
This is a trail running weekend, but you don’t need to be an athlete to enjoy this. There are a range of runs available to take part in, mixed in with sessions on trail running techniques, trail navigation, gym exercises and trail gear. Residential and non-residential options available.
If you are a 5km – 15km runner, keen to learn more then you’ll build your confidence to go off road and into new territory.
For the developing endurance trail runner, there will be a variety of trail run options of longer distances.
Either way, you’ll spend the weekend with like-minded people, who all share the same passion and interests as yourself.
As we head into Summer, this weekend will leave you with the knowledge to keep on running safely, get ready for your 2019 running goal and make the most of the trail running season.
