It was a stunning day for Dan to be on the Quantock Hills running day one of the MIAS Level 1 & Level 2 training course. Blue skies, sun out and a gentle breeze to cool you down.
The day started at Cannington Activity Centre to cover all the course theory in the classroom. This included: Remit of the award, access, trail side maintenance and leaders equipment.
After lunch they made our way to Crowcombe Park gate to start the practical elements of the course. A short ride covering some basic navigation, the moorland environment and leadership styles/techniques.
The three candidates will be back tomorrow for day two. A whole day on the hill continuing with the remainder of the syllabus.
