Not many people actually wake up one morning, suddenly thinking they want to be a runner. Most are ordinary folk who enjoy getting out in the open a couple of times each week, meeting up with friends and enjoying the changing seasons. In 2014, Falkland Trail Runners decided to start a new initiative to help people switch off the telly, get off their couch and become a bit more active.
Get Fit Falkland was established to take you from no ability to running half an hour or 5K. An amazing challenge - but one that’s achievable by anyone who really wants to do it. At the end, you’re ready to join Falkland Trail Runners and become a "Psycho Squirrel". But it’s not compulsory. For others, we provide weekly "maintenance runs" that will never be much more than 5k in length and that go at a pace that everyone in the group can manage. If you're still not sure, well we’ll just be glad to have helped you on your journey to a longer and happier life!
