I created a new programme for 2011 and as it was such a success, there will be women's and mixed group programmes in 2012
About the Programme
I have been running and racing on the fells for more than 30 years, and decided to combine my professional role as a Business Coach with my passion for being in the hills.
In the Introducing Fellrunning programme I've put together a way of developing skills and confidence in on the fells that is quite unique - combining the mind and body approaches of NLP, Qi Gong and Energetic NLP . Having trained in Kinetic Chain Release, a protocol which balances the mind as well as the body, I ensure that you’re physically set up to move at your best as well as preventing injury. The programme will give you a truly holistic experience and set of skills that are equally applicable to the other parts of your life. We will take routes over the Howgill and Lakeland fells, to give you a whole new way of experiencing the mountains.
Introducing Fell Running for Women
The programme provides an introduction to the skills required for moving at a faster (than walking) pace over the fells. The days will be tailored to the people in the group with the emphasis on increasing your knowledge and skill in the mountains so that you can move confidently and safely.
We will also spend time finding the most appropriate type of fell shoes and clothing for your type of running.
The programme is suitable for women of any age who have a good level of fitness from walking, road running, climbing or a similar sport.
The programme starts on the evening of the first day and finishes in time for you to get home on the third day.
£380 includes the training input, 3 nights B&B at Summerhill, lunches and dinner on the first evening.
Discounts for groups
Bring a group of 4 for a discount of 10% or a group of 5 for 15% discount person.
You will probably want to talk to me before you make the decision to come on the programme. Places are limited to 5 participants (although you're welcome to bring a partner with you for a holiday).

Read About Fellrunning
I used to think fell running was just for very fit men and that you needed to be able to run uphill. Then, aged 20, I entered my first fell race. I was working as an Instructor at Eskdale Outward Bound School where it was expected for everyone to take part in the local race. This was 32 years ago and in those days ‘ladies’ were deemed to be not quite as able as the men.......
