Dig Deep Training Day and Ultra Talks


18th May 2013

George Hotel – Hathersage from 9.30am

A limited number of places are available to join us in Hathersage for a series of enlightening and informative talks on Ultra running and the Dig Deep Races. There will also be an opportunity to join one of the classes/Ultra recce’s later in the day so please bring your running stuff. We also have some kit for you to try on, if you wish, from a few of the race sponsors.

Finally, there will be an opportunity to buy discounted running kit from the Hathersage Outside store for those attending.

Please note that the day is totally free but we do ask that you sign up on the race organiser’s website. Please note that you do not have to be entered on to the Dig Deep races to attend but if the day is full then we will give preference to those already booked on to the races. The runs/training will be at a steady pace so a moderate level of fitness is required.

We have a strict limit for the day so please book in advance.
