When running off-road, whether it is fell, trail, cross-country or orienteering you will inevitably come across hills and as the saying goes, what goes up, must come down again. Most runners tend to think that the ability to run well downhill is something that you are born with or is handed to you when you leave the asylum.

Fortunately it is neither. Rather it is a skill that, with correct conditioning and practice, can be prepared for and learnt. Written by one of the North Easts leading off-road coaches, this guide will show you how to prepare physically, the techniques to practice and also how to construct a training programme to improve your downhill running.

A great asset to any fell runners library...provides all the information and programmes you need to change yourself from Captain Bad Descender into a latter-day Kenny Stuart. The Fellrunner Magazine

Its quite revolutionary to have someone attempt to analyse the skills needed for good downhill running in such a scientific manner as Keven Shevels does in this guide. Scottish Hill Runners Association Newsletter

As well as being a helpful guide for those new to off-road
running, this could also prove useful to those of us who have
still not mastered the art of descending. Newsletter of the Welsh Fell Runners Association
