Off-Road Training Information

We offer weekly structured off-road training sessions all year road and have a strong group of qualified fell coaches and leaders in charge of each session.

Although off-road running is very different to road running, it is a discipline that is accessible to all and can be a wonderful release as you head off the beaten track and into the great outdoors. Once you have acclimatised to running over the paths, hills and fells, you'll soon discover countless new places as you explore the great British countryside.

However, running off-road can also carry greater risks to personal safety and greater exposure to the elements at any time of the year. Therefore, if you are thinking of coming along to any of our off-road sessions, please adhere to the following club guidelines and kit requirements.

Whether you are fairly new to fell running or a relatively old hand, the Fell Runners Association has a weatlth of information on races and all other aspects of fell running. Anyone taking part in FRA-registered events and many other off-road races should be familiar with the standard fell racing requirements and "best practice kit".

Club Training Requirements

Running Level:
The standard weekly off-road sessions are up to 90 minutes long over higher ground, whereas the fortnightly introductory sessions are 60 minutes over lower ground, so you should at least be capable of spending these amounts of time running.

Recommended Minimum Kit: Summer
Waterproof jacket, emergency food, trail or fell shoes

Recommended Minimum Kit: Winter (end of September to end of March)
Waterproof jacket, hat, gloves, whistle, head torch, emergency food, trail or fell shoes

PLEASE NOTE: Winter off-road sessions are only suitable for runners with off-road experience.

For more information please contact Pete Stobbs via Facebook message, email offroad@trawdenac.co.uk or phone 07947 323809 prior to the session.
