Our Coach to Trail Runner course is great for beginner runners who find off-road running a bit scary and don't like the idea of either joining a running club 'full of fast people' or venturing out on their own, with the associated risks and pitfalls that brings.
It's a bit different from the common 'couch to 5k' courses that are around now - in that it enocurages exploration away from the tarmac with all of the benefits that brings, and you get to go about your running progressions in your own time, without pressure, but with constant support and coaching from the Course Leader.
The great thing about our course is that there are Coaching Sessions which you shall benefit greatly from. Don't worry if you can't make them all, but obviously, more the better! These will not just be about taking in some beautiful trails - it will teach you about key aspects of off road running. Technique - route finding and planning - appropriate kit - training holistically to get better and much much more. Alongside these, you'll benefit from the accountability of regular contact with your coach as you make your way through the specially designed running progression programme, that you'll follow away from these coaching sessions, and also your fellow beginner trail runners through the closed Facebook Group that shall be set up.
At the end of the coaching period, you'll get a place on the start line at the Loggerheads Trail 5km - and you'll be in a great position to enjoy a fantastic Spring & Summer of Trail Running!
What you get: 5 Coaching Sessions, complete with great running, education & refreshments. A specially designed progression programme to follow away from the coaching sessions. ENTRY INTO THE LOGGERHEADS TRAIL 5KM EVENT ON 7/3/19. Constant support and advice as you go through the programme. Access to closed Facebook group with extra tips/training videos and demos to help you on your way.
