 Our Mountain Walking and Running Expert Charlie Sproson from www.mountainrun.co.uk, will pass onto you his expertise through experience and swift movement in the fells.   This walk isn't necessarily speedy, but about your technical agility, what to work on and how to improve your skills.  Those with and without poels are welcome on this session.

Some technical ground will be covered so all terrain shoes with a good trail grip are essential.

Please also bring waterproofs with you, even on a good day, these will act as your emergency layer.  We will get a good speed up to do this loop in the allotted time so make sure you come with a water bottle & high energy snack, and a pack to take some layers off as we head off!  PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR FITNESS LEVEL OR ABILITY TO WALK ON THE TRICKY LAKELAND TERRAIN AS I'M HAPPY TO HAVE A CHAT ABOUT THIS. You will not be allowed to walk with our group if you do not have the right kit with you and suitable sustenance/drinks/food! Sorry to sound so strict, but we are out with you guys in the fells often with no road close by, so important you come equipped.  Our leaders will always have a first aid kit & emergency kit but you must be able to carry your own rucksack for the duration of the walk. From September until end of April, please bring a headtorch on all walks which are due to continue into the afternoon after lunchtime...

If you are joining one of our adventures/activites outdoors, by signing up you are consenting to our help in the case of emergency with regards to 1st Aid as required, and that you have updated any medication info to your instructor prior to the activity if anything has changed since you last walked with us.
