Fell Running Workshops

Our one-day ‘How To Fell Run’ workshop is aimed at all runners that can comfortably run 5k and are looking to develop and progress their fell running skills.

No matter what your objectives, the workshop is designed and developed to be inspirational, fun and provide tips and techniques to enhance your time out on the fells.

Who is it for?

  • Road and trail runners looking to make the transition to fell

  • Runners looking for confidence off the beaten track

  • Runners that want to increase stamina and reduce fatigue on difficult ground

  • All runners that want an in depth understanding of body positioning and foot placement on uneven terrain.

What does it include?

The day starts with tea/ coffee upon meeting at 10am at The Eversfield Dartmoor Inn at Merrivale for a quick discussion about the day ahead. Transport can be provided if needed from the Run Venture shop in Tavistock.

From here we will head out onto the open fell on foot and will start with a steady 3km run to assess everyone’s ability.

During this run, your run leader will assess your body and foot position and various subjects will be discussed as a group, including:

  • pre and post run stretching

  • uphill and downhill techniques

  • foot placement

  • gait and stride

  • environment, vision and terrain

Following this run, there is the opportunity to rest and rehydrate back at the Dartmoor Inn, while the Run Venture crew explain what clothing and attire is expected and ideal for moorland and fell running, showing you different styles and brands from the shop.

Having learnt new skills, the group will be taken back out onto the moors and guided on an exciting and technical fell run that climbs granite tors, crosses streams and open moorland with further coaching given along the way.

At approximately 2pm, we will head back to for a late lunch and a chance to debrief and ask questions on the day.
