How to train for Glen Coe Skyline – technical ground & downhill with Georgia Tindley (1st lady 2019)

Very excited to present a newly sponsored Skyrunning athlete to you this Wed 6:30pm UK time – Georgia Tindley, ladies winner of the Glen Coe Skyline 2019 and now sponsored by Merrell! She is a total pro at running over rough ground, scrambling, and power-hiking up steep hills like she did in this epic 52km Scottish race with 4750m ascent.

She answers your questions about training for such a technically difficult race, especially if you don’t live in the mountains. We cover pre-race nerves, pacing, gear, downhill technique, nutrition and how to use visualisation when everything hurts. She also reveals that she is fuelled by a very particular type of sandwich, but as yet is refusing to reveal her great great great grandmother’s secret recipe…
