Mountain Skills Day

Last week we held a mountain running skills day for members based out of Shimna College in Newcastle. Martin McMullan from Mourne MRT came and we discussed kit and keeping safe and warm while running in the hills, including an outdoor exercise getting a bit cold.

Susan Lambe then led a navigation workshop in the hall and we split into groups to go out on the hill and put nav into practice. The challenging conditions meant putting into practice the decision-making skills we had discussed earlier!

Thanks to Marty for coming along, Jim for sorting Shimna and the tea, and to Susan and Andrew for helping out!
