Cheshire Network's 1st Off-Road Development Day goes down a treat!
As well as the track and field development day on the 2nd April, runners from across the County gathered together to enjoy a day of fell running development organised by Phil Barnes and supported by the Cheshire McCain Athletics Network.
Over 30 runners attended and took part in both practical and theory sessions held at the Teggs Nose Visitor Centre, Macclesfield. Downhill techniques, navigation and kit choice were all covered with practical coaching sessions delivered by Tony Hulme of Running Bear and Nick Harris, FRA coach from Rossendale.
There were representatives from: Goyt Valley Striders, Halton And Frodsham, Helsby, South Cheshire Harriers, Spectrum Striders, Warrington Road Runners, West Cheshire and Macclesfield Harriers.
After these energetic and interactive sessions the group split into 2 groups for a 90min run around Macclesfield Forest / Rainow before they all headed back to Macclesfield Harriers club house for a hot lunch. Feedback has been very positive and further sessions building upon the experience are already being planned!
Many thanks to Phil Barnes for his efforts in organising the successful day.
