1st time Ultra-trail


It’s the key fell running season for us in the Lake District at present. We’ve got just 3 final spaces on our running trips pre-summer, as detailed at the base of this blog post. The most popular Lakes based running course has been our NEW “1st time Ultra Runners” course. We designed these courses to provide you the confidence and pre-requisite skills, to have a good chance to finish your first ultra race. Skills covered include; runners navigation, pace planning, night running, nutrition and hydration. You also have the opportunity to run in a mock running event on the Sunday.

The instructor ratio for these weekend events is 1:4, which offers exceptional value and contact, so you are looked after, and get the most out of the weekend. If more than 4 people book, a second UIMLA leader will assist but we cap numbers at 8 maximum on any course date. Aimed at those looking at any mountain ultra running event, where both running technique, and runners navigation and pacing skills are required. Events where these skills really apply include the UTMB race series (OCC / CCC / TDS / UTMB / PTL), the Lakes in a Day, Marathon du Mont Blanc, & Tour de Helvellyn.
