Element Active – Beginning Fell Running for Women @ Perthi Crwn
Apr 24 all-day

If you like the idea of being able to run in the mountains but have never started then this will be the perfect day for you.

We are two highly experienced top women fell runners who are passionate about getting more women to enjoy this sport. Both of us have competed internationally and have been involved with fell running for many years and… we both just love being out in the hills. We will facilitate a well-structured, confidence-building day introducing you to fell running.

Fell running is exhilarating: leave your world-worries behind, be out in nature, have a view, feel the elements and be away from the traffic. We think when you’ve tried it that you won’t want to go back to the tarmac! We help you find your confidence – build on your strengths and not let any weaknesses dominate.

This is a day where you work at your chosen level and we get you to find your ‘off road’ feet.

Element Active – Beginning Mountain Biking Weekend For Women @ Llwyn Celyn
May 15 – May 16 all-day

Mountain Bikes can take us to places that other bikes can’t – trails through bluebell woods, along skyline ridges, on paths that wind through beautiful remote valleys, away from traffic, immersed in wild nature. With just a little investment in basic skills and techniques, and time to learn and reflect, these worlds can be opened up for you too. At Element, this is what our Beginning Mountain Biking Weekend For Women is all about.

Over Element’s two-day course in the spectacular Black Mountains you’ll ride some of the best trails in Britain. You’ll learn the fundamentals of mountain biking: body position, effective braking and gear selection, climbing and descending with confidence over terrain that won’t be too technical – or terrifying.

Element Active – Yoga & Fell Running Weekend for Women @ Llwyn Celyn
Jul 3 @ 9:00 am – Jul 4 @ 5:00 pm

Being truly fit is about having a balanced body, good mental focus and the curiosity to explore your boundaries. Element are delighted to be collaborating with The Sports Ashram and their top quality expertise for this new and unique Yoga and Fell Running Weekend for Women.

Find out how to hone your training, get more from the fells and create a body that can move freely and a mind that can be more strongly focused to enrich your physical performance.

No previous yoga experience is necessary. The cost of the weekend includes your own yoga mat, two blocks and a belt all for you to keep and access to follow-on material.

The running and coaching sessions will be challenging in a positive way but most importantly are structured for you to be able to work at your own level.
