Sunluver, we (
www.runsnowdonia.co.uk) run running navigation days for the Welsh Fell Runners (WFRA - www.wfra.me.uk), twice a year, once in the spring and once in the autumn, the last course cost £20 for non-members and £15 for WFRA members. Ran from Llanberis. All done at walking pace. Just ran the spring one but we'll run another one in November ish time.
The English FRA also organise navigation courses, which I think are weekends, and as far as I know cost around £50, and I've only heard good comments about their courses, but no personal experience.
All are experienced Fell runners, but also Mountain Leader Qualified.
Along way from the South, but their may be people who run such courses down there. They don't need to be running specific, but it does help really, but we do our courses at walking pace and then just talk about how things differ when running, i.e. greater emphasis on relocation, relying on less evidence, more 'gambles', and the different strategies.
Apologies for the plug, but I do recommend other courses and just providing info.
