The Fell, Hill, Off Road and Trail Jog Leader module (referred to here as Off-Road – Leader) is designed for those who have completed the standard LiRF / Jog Leader qualification and who now wish to lead groups safely on more challenging terrains and more remote areas.

The course is designed to prepare you to provide a safe and enjoyable running experience for over 18’s, of any ability, with a focus on typical fell and hill terrains.  This will include leading on public paths marked on an Ordnance Survey ‘Explorer’ or ‘Landranger’ map (including those shown on open access land), and the published routes of licensed fell/hill races.

The course builds on LiRF / Jog Leader, contextualizing the learning for an unpredictable environment, and covers preparing for, and managing, risk on different terrains in varying conditions.  As well as keeping a group safe it will also cover the techniques of Off-Road running, including ascending, descending and coping with different terrains and conditions under foot.

This qualification will provide you with insurance to lead a group within the limits of the course content and on receipt of a satisfactory Outdoor First Aid Training Course.
