Take your first steps into the hills and hike with confidence

Sponsored by Montane our online events this spring are for anyone who dreams of starting hiking and is unsure how to, and for those already on the path, they're also a great refresher if you're wishing to learn more. 

Our experts will share their knowledge so you can go from urban strolling to striding into the hills with confidence.

Topics will include:

• what to wear
• what kit to buy
• planning your day
• navigation basics
• emergency skills
• lockdown tips

No travel, no faff – gain all you need to know from the comfort of your home.

Thursday 22 April 7pm to 9.30pm on Zoom

Hosted live by TV presenter and hiker Mary-Ann Ochota, this first event will cover everything new hikers need to know. Mary-Ann will be joined by expert instructors Rachael Crewesmith and Stephen Trenier who have a wealth of knowledge and clever hacks to help you plan, pack and hike like a pro.

Thursday 13 May 8pm to 9pm on Zoom

This live Q&A is your opportunity to ask Mary-Ann and our hiking experts any questions you might have following on from the first evening.
