Welcome to Trail Running Scotland we are a new and exciting company based in Aviemore in the Highlands of Scotland. I have started Trail Running Scotland with two aims really. Firstly to provide skills training, such as navigation and off road running technique, to try to get more people out having off road adventures. Secondly to get out and enjoy the amazing, world-class trail running that we have in Scotland on a range of guided, supported trips.
We will be offering training, guiding and inspiration in all things trail running related.
Our courses are designed to increase your confidence and enjoyment of off-road running through improved running technique, navigation skills to help you to explore and tips for dealing with rough terrain with a grin!
We will also be launching soon our selection of guided trips, where we will tour Scotland enjoying the very best of it's trails.
Other courses coming soon will be preparation for Mountain Marathon and Adventure racing as well as Skyrunning introduction and reconnaissance.
Trail Running Scotland is lead by Ian Stewart, a Mountaineering Instructor with ten years experience of delivering courses at the highest level, increasingly over the last few years my running has taken over from my other sports. I ran a Bob Graham Round for my stag do, I compete at an elite level in Mountain Marathon events and finished 16th in the Celtman Extreme Triathlon.
You will find a few dates for our courses on the website, and some courses with no set dates. If you can’t find the information that you are looking for, please just get in touch for more information.

See you on the trail.
With only 4 months to go until the Berghaus Dragons back race it seems like a good time to take stock of my training and see what I still need to do.

"A very enjoyable day on all counts. Ian ran the course in a thoughtful and professional manner, and the course was tailored to meet everybody's objectives. (Really important point if you are not sure wether to go or not)"
John C, Navigation for runners
"Absolute professional - Ian inspires confidence in the most hostile of environments and couldn't be a more enthusiastic and capable guide. Can't wait to run with Ian again soon!"
