We are delighted to announce that Icicle is the first, and as yet the only, operator to offer Alpine Skyrunning courses! What is skyrunning? It’s trail running in higher altitudes, on rougher ground (even on snow), and in more remote mountain areas. Following the boom of trail running in the Alps, skyrunning is the next step, for those who want to escape the crowds that bit more. The captivating photo above, was taken last week in Chamonix, of our most recent running group.
The course was launched over the weekend, and already the first course date has sold out. We have space on the Chamonix based week of 7-13 September 2014. For further details and the course itinerary, click here. During the week you will run sections of routes that are raced in the Skyrunning World Championships, and will be led by a finisher of one of the iconic ultra-trails such as UTMB or Tor du Geants.
This new course is an example of our pioneering approach, based on our heritage of being based in the mountains, for both work and play. If you would like to come and talk through this trip, then please visit our office and shop in Windermere in the UK Lake District National Park.
