Knock Hill with a Twist - Full Price
Full Price Ticket
£ 10.00

A hill (or fell) run up and around Knock Hill.

Participants should be extremely ‘hill-walking’ fit and had some prior training to increase ankle strength and ability to move over pathless terrain. This will be a run, though in reality a jog/shuffle/double time is more descriptive. We will average 5mph. There will be an all-terrain covered from a good track to heather and holes and steep hillside. No rocky terrain or crags involved.

There will be a brief archaeological diversion on the way up and other points of interest will be noted. Stops will be brief though as any more than a minute will disrupt the flow.

Tip: do some anaerobic threshold training prior (intervals/hill sprints). Pacing is the key. The technique will be explained on the day.

Dogs can be brought so long as they have good recall and fitness and do not stray far. Leads will be needed here and there, especially if there are cattle about on the lower slopes. There is at least one road crossing.

I can provide a list of gear needed. No heavy rucksacks, walking poles, thermos flasks or heavy boots; think running gear with an outdoor bias. Trail running shoes will do, though fell running shoes (Walshe racers or Inov8 Mudclaws are my favourites).
