Fell running training sessions

As we head in to the final couple of fixtures of the cross country season, some will be breathing sighs of relief and hiding their muddy shoes away for another year. Although for some in the club, attention is turning to more mud and hills in the fells – with Saltwell’s own Fell Series starting on Sunday 8th March at Brough Law. For those who don’t know what it’s all about, the Fell Series is an internal competition of selected, local fell races across the year. See the post from January 13th for more information on the races and the rules for men/women.
Some fell races do require experience – often with technical terrain, tricky weather conditions and the need for navigational skills – and this sometimes puts people off from even thinking about it. However, Keith has kindly offered to lead a couple of Fell training sessions over the next couple of months, in place of the Saturday morning cross country sessions:
Saturday 21st March
Saturday 4th April
Nearer the time, we will be sorting out car sharing arrangements and times, but we just wanted to give you a bit of notice as you may want to think about whether it is something you are interested in. You would need a pair of trail or fell shoes although ask around to see if people have any spares you could try.
Saltwell has a great fell running history and an amazing level of experience within the club – chat to people like Keith, Fred, Jim, Peter, Phil J, Paul Richardson and others for some amazing tales. They would also be able to offer advice on good races to try if you don’t have much experience.
Have we twisted your arm yet? 😉
