Explore the fells of the National Park at sunrise, sunset and at night.
Experience a long weekend of fell running, just a valley away from the house of fell legend, Joss Naylor.
Your guides will be a top local fell runner and experienced mountain runner, as well as qualified mountain guide, Ceri Rees, who has raced at all levels in the sport and knows the surrounding valleys, as well as local expert Jacob Tomkin.
You will spend three nights staying near the beautiful Duddon Valley and venture off towards Coniston and Eskdale Fells on different days. Previous camps have included dinner on the second night by fell running legend and sheep farmer, Joss Naylor, who regales the group with some of his running stories and reflections on fell running.
This camp usually takes place April/May.
Some background in running would be beneficial and you should have a reasonable level of fitness. However you don’t have to be a primed athlete to sign up. You just need to be capable of running a half marathon at any pace.
