Training Runs

Summer Season

During the summer, MDC meets for weekly training runs – just turn up to run at 6.30pm sharp for an hour or so sweating up some of the finest hillsides in South East Wales. All runs finish at a local pub or a member’s house to replace lost calories. Where a run is from an individual’s house please contact the host via facebook beforehand so they get an idea of numbers, and don’t forget to bring your own beer!

 

The terrain can be rough and remote, so come prepared with adequate clothing and shoes for the conditions and time of year. Runs suitable for new members who aren’t experienced fell runners are marked below, and in green on the map. If you haven’t been before, contact Gary to let us know you’d like to come – he’s on info@runmdc.org.uk

Winter Headtorch Runs

As the winter draws in, MDC now switches to its fortnightly training runs by headtorch. Just turn up to run at 6.30pm sharp for an hour or so sweating up some of the finest hillsides in South East Wales, and bring decent kit for the conditions, plus a bright torch! All runs finish at a local pub or a member’s house to replace lost calories. Where a run is from an individual’s house please contact the host via facebook beforehand so they get an idea of numbers, and don’t forget to bring your own beer!

If you haven’t been before, contact Gary to let us know you’d like to come – he’s on info@runmdc.org.uk If you’ve never been fell running before, it might be worth trying it in the daylight first…
