Navigation Content Activities in the Peak District

Peak District Running - Fell Running Guide - Peak District

    Fell Running Guide offers guided runs in the beautiful Peak District National Park. 

    Do you enjoy running but are unfamiliar with the area or don’t have the navigation skills to allow you to make the most of your time in the Peak District?  Would you love to explore the more remote areas but are worried that you’d get lost?  With a guided run you can focus on the beautiful surroundings with the peace of mind that the navigation is taken care of.

    Working with individuals or small groups I tailor the session to the needs of the runner.  This could be anything from a gentle half hour run on easy terrain to a full day on the high moors.

    You might want to look down onto the tranquil reservoirs of Ladybower and the Derwent valley or maybe you want to visit some of the lesser known areas such as Kinder Scout or Bleaklow.  You could even investigate some of the World War 2 plane wrecks across the region.

    If you’re an early bird you could try a sunrise run (weather permitting!) seeing the views in the light of dawn before a well-earned breakfast, or alternatively watch the sunset from a remote location and then jog back in the twilight – head torches provided.

    For those interested in fell races why not opt for a run around the famous Edale Skyline course to see if you can manage it.  If that’s too hard you could try one of the many local short race routes and maybe then enter the race itself.

    So you’re thinking “I’m not fit enough!”  Well you don’t have to be super fit to take part; the great thing about the Peak District is that it offers such a wide range of terrain making it an ideal running area.  From flat scenic trails to harsh, bleak moorlands there is something to satisfy everyone.

    All you need is your personal running clothing, I can provide running sacks if required at no extra cost.  I can also give advice on the sort of equipment you need if you are considering purchasing items.

    If you want to learn how to navigate, this can be incorporated into the run.  Fell Running Guide will provide map & compass and take you through some of the essential skills needed to get off the beaten track, giving you the confidence to become independent.  I can also show you how to get the most from a GPS device and how it can help you navigate on the run.

    So whether it is a gentle introduction to off road running or a challenging navigation day on the remote high moors, Fell Running Guide has something for everyone.
