Training Weekends

As in previous years we will be organising a series of training weekends throughout the winter. These are aimed primarily at first time Flingers and will enable runners to meet other runners, have fun, recce the route and learn some good stuff about trail running.  There are short talks by elite runners and professionals working in the field of running, as well as running related workshops to attend.

They are very friendly and informal and are based at the race finish at By The Way Hostel and Campsite in Tyndrum.

Numbers are limited to 50 runners per weekend.

To get a feel for the events please read Adrian's report from a past weekend.

  • Friday evening: arrive, chat and relax.
  • Saturday morning: Group run on the race route followed by homemade soup, bread & cakes.
