We are very excited to celebrate #InternationalWomensDay by announcing the partnership between VOOM Nutrition and Girls on Hills. They empower women with the skills and confidence necessary to become self-reliant in the mountain environment, something that is very important to us here at VOOM.

 

 

Girls on Hills is the UK's only guided trail, fell and skyrunning running company, designed specifically for women*. Their guided runs are aimed at women who want to break free from the road and take their running into the mountains. They also offer navigation, mountain safety and hillwalking courses suitable for beginners.

 

 

 

“Girls on Hills is thrilled to be partnering with VOOM. We’re excited to be working with a British brand that takes a scientific approach to nutrition product development and sustainability.

 

We look forward to using the full range of VOOM products for run guiding, training and racing, to maximise the performance of both our team and our customers!” Keri Wallace (Co-Founder).

 

Courses and private bookings take place across the Scottish​ Highlands (Glen Coe, Lochaber and the Cairngorms) and in Snowdonia and the Lake District National Park.

 

Access Fund

 

If you love trail running or find joy in the mountains, help Girls on Hills pay it forward by donating towards their not-for-profit Access Fund and help support those women who face additional barriers to accessing our sport.

 

Despite its apparent simplicity, recreation in the mountains can be expensive. This might be due to travel, equipment or the cost of skills courses and races (not to mention child-care/caring support). Compared to the majority of women, some groups face additional barriers and are poorly represented across our sport. The Access Fund from Girls on Hills is a not-for-profit fund that will cover the cost of courses for women who find it hard to access the trails/mountains and who wish to participate. These barriers might include (and are not limited to):

  • Financial difficulties

  • Mental health 

  • Disability

  • Lack of representation (minority ethnic groups and religious beliefs)

  • Sexual or gender minority

  • Victims of abuse

  • Sole parenting/caring responsibilities

  • Social isolation

 

Girls on Hills aim to create a fund to support these women and facilitate their entry and development in our sport, enabling them to experience the many benefits that the rest of us sometimes take for granted.
