'What an amazing experience. I've run for quite a few years now, I'm a decent runner but have started to become a bit bored of the roads and racing (and having just moved to the north) I decided to try a 1-2-1 intro to trail running. What an introduction. Rodger made me feel totally at ease, I had the feeling he just knew what pace was right for me it was a perfect blend of being gentle enough to chat but then he threw in a few long uphills mixed with some technical downhills. He adjusted the trail perfectly to my ability. I'm sure if you're a novice or a super experienced trail runner he'd find the perfect pace and trail for you.
The views were spectacular. There were moments I had to stop and just take in the scenery - and that was on a windy and wet day! It was like being taken on a mini adventure.
Rodger is an experienced coach, and if you want it he's there to answer any technical questions, but I felt this is more about getting out, having fun and realising how good it is for the soul to be out in the elements running through some of the most beautiful and dramatic landscapes in the UK. In short, the trails, the guides, the hospitality it's brilliant. If you want to get off the roads and really find the magic of running again this is where to do it.'

Everything was easy to arrange and when I arrived I was made to feel welcome. Everyone was friendly and it was nice to have a trail run where you were guided and could just enjoy the outing. First time today, but will definitely be back.

Today I did my first trail run with LTR and loved it! Rodger was great when I spoke to him over the phone reassuring me that I would be capable, i would be looked after and most of all that I would enjoy it and I did! The other people on the run were all really lovely and welcoming, no competitive tension and everyone with a common goal to enjoy the outdoors and run. Finished off the morning with a coffee and cake/bacon butty etc really great way to spend Sunday Morning. Loved it so much I've signed up for another. Thanks Rodger and team and to the other participants for making me feel welcome. See you soon xxx
