Outdoor First Aid





FRA Emergency Outdoor First Aid Course


The FRA are keen to promote greater safety in our races and for fell runners in general.

It is aimed primarily at fell runners who are race organisers, marshals or FRA members with some responsibilities for fell runners and their wellbeing.

It will be at the Woodhead Barn on 7th-8th December

The price will be £85, this does not include food(other than tea/coffee and biscuits) and accommodation however you we are welcome to stay over in the Barn, using blow up beds / sleeping bags at no cost, there is space for camper vans if that is your preference. We also now have a basic camping field using the Barns facilities, this is in a very exposed spot on top of a hill so bring a proper 4 season bag if this is your preference. .... We have use of the kitchens to cook and there are showers in the barn should you want them.

On the last first aid course we all decamped to the local Indian restaurant for a social meal on Saturday night and I will look in to that again.
Sunday morning those hardy folk can go for a run..approx. 10 minutes drive away.

Once the places have been confirmed and paid I'll send you out a registration form and other information required for the course(this may take a few weeks but once you have paid you are on the course)

Please note around 40% of the course is outside regardless of the weather. We use fields and some steep grounds which are close to the Barn. Make sure you bring warm and waterproof kit to change into, hat and gloves etc, boots are good idea too. Think FRA minimum kit and then imagine you are stood around for a while.

I'll send Payment instructions if you confirm your interest. I'll hold your places for a couple of weeks or until the course is getting full if I haven't heard I'll offer it on to the next persons on the list.

Any questions please let me know.
