About the Event
Run the Ridges is a series of 2 day events where the aim is to go out and run to, across, along and from the best ridgelines that the local area has to offer.
These will be several events throughout 2021, all taking place in a different mountainous region of the UK.
Think Crib Goch on the Snowdon Massif, Striding Edge on Helvellyn, the Aonach Eagach in Glen Coe....
What better way to enjoy these exhilarating ridges than to run along them?
We will spend 2 days running around the most impressive and exciting terrain that the areas have to offer.
Don't fret - we won't go fast, the aim will be to enjoy ourselves, not rush!
Although the itinerary will be flexible, the events will be run as follows:
DAY 1 - SKILLS DAY - We will look at all the skills needed to run on more exposed and exciting terrain. We will head up onto a ridge to practise these skills, but will not do a very long run (Max 10 miles)
DAY 2 - Full day of ridge running, putting Days 1's skills into practise.
