These are off road running sessions led by a Leader in Running Fitness (LiRF) around the tracks and fells of Hamsterley Forest with the main aim of developing hill fitness, increasing confidence in off road running and most of all sharing the joy of running for fun across the varied terrain that fell running has to offer.
We meet on alternate Tuesdays during term time in the main car park at Hamsterley Forest from 1850, ready to run at 1900.
