Phil Cheek (Fell Section) supported by Neil Gunn organises a one day navigation course for club members 18 & over. The courses are help in spring and autumn depending on interest. There are 12 places available on each course and these are allocated on a 'first-come-first-served' basis. There is a waiting list in operation in preparation for the next course.
The course is aimed at beginners using a successful format used in previous years.
The aim is to take runners who have little or no knowledge of map & compass to the point where they can begin to navigate themselves around the local terrain.
You`ll need to be equipped for a run on the fells & with good warm dry kit in case we end up standing around or moving slowly in bad weather.
Bring a compass (take advice if you need to about what to buy), maps will be provided. Bring a packed lunch (tea/coffee & cakes will be provided).
The morning session will be "classroom" followed by exercises in the local fields. After lunch you will set out in small groups on a mini mountain marathon course shadowed & advised by an experienced fell runner. The afternoon session will take ~2hrs and you will be required to wear suitable clothing for the remote terrain and weather conditions.
Location: Common Barn Farm (Smith Lane, Rainow SK10 5XJ)
Aim to finish by 16.00
Cost: Â£8.00 (bring on the day) to cover room hire, maps, tea/coffee and cake (please bring own packed lunch)
The course is limited to a maximum of 12 participants (pre-booked on a first-come-first-served basis) - if it is over-subscribed there will be a waiting list.
