With Lowri Morgan 

and the Trail Events Co

We are very pleased to be able to bring you our new trail running training weekends.

Join us for a two day (2 night) fun packed trail running masterclass weekend, coaching sessions and seminars lead by runner and adventurer Lowri Morgan and The Trail Events Co team.

Lowri is a world-class extreme endurance runner. She has waded through murky swamps and rivers teeming with piranhas in the Amazon as well as plough through blizzards and biting icy winds to complete and win the notoriously tough 6633 Ultra in the Arctic. Lowri is also a BFTA award winning presenter working on the BBC.

The weekend training/ coaching camp will be ideal for those wanting to improve their running, training, gain confidence and will tailor your requirements as much as we can.

Over the weekend we will cover:

Overcoming injuries

Seeking suffering though ultra running

Training – lessons learned

Motives of a long distance runner

Embracing failure/ Fear of failure

Perseverance and determination

Understanding potential

The power of your mind

Courage and being bold

Resilience is king

Mind over miles

Endurance and ultra marathons

Heat and cold

Accommodation will be at the Ynysmarchog bunkhouse with breakfast, lunch and evening meals included. After your enrolment you will be given a questionnaire to fill in which will give us more of an idea in advance on what you’re looking to gain from the experience/ course followed by a more detailed itinerary closer to the date.

You will need- 

Running clothes for 2 days (there may be 3-5 different sessions over the weekend) Waterproof layers,

Fell/trail running shoes

Extra layers

Head torch

You will arrive on the Saturday morning before heading off on your first run. Lead by experienced trail runners and guides you will enjoy the best of what trail running can offer you as well as getting in some great training.

The most exciting part of this course is that one of your coaches for the weekend will be the legendary ultra runner and BBC Sport presenter Lowri Morgan.

You’ll be taking on some amazing views on these guided runs.

With hard climbs and technical descents we will teach you everything you need to know about trail running and staying safe on the trails.

The weekend will be suitable to anyone wanting to improve their running, gain confidence and improve endurance and a great opportunity to learn.

Additional Info

Number & Timing Chip

For our events, numbers and timing chips are sent to runners in the post approximately 1 week before the event. Please ensure your address is up to date on the system you used to register, at least 2 weeks. If you enter the event at the last minute, you will be able to collect your bib and timing chip on the day.

Please make a note of your registration time for the distance you selected and make sure you arrive giving yourself enough time to register.

Please also make a note of your briefing time and ensure you attend the briefing.

Both the number and the timing chip have to be worn at all times during the event.

You also have the chance to rent GPS tracking units, which enable your friends and family to track you all the way around the course.


We use a number of signs during our events. Arrow markers are on a hi-viz reflective red with white arrow to mark the direction to be taken.

We advise runners to bring a map of the route with them on event day in case of emergencies. You can download the map and print it and you can download GPX files to your device.

Regarding training weekends, no signage will be provided, as all runs will be guided.
