The Programme

We want these weekends to be challenging, fun and motivating for all runners, regardless of ability. Therefore the programme is flexible...you can do it all...or you can pick and chose the right mix for you.

Arriving on Friday from 6pm we'll all meet for a group meal at 8pm followed by an official camp welcome and introductions. 

Saturday morning for the earlier risers there will be an early pre breakfast run at 7:30 followed by breakfast at 8. After breakfast we will hold the first of our group coaching talks and Q&A sessions before having the option of a threshold/tempo run at 11:00. After lunch we will have an interactive session with some of our special guests before a hill session followed by group stretching and conditioning session later in the afternoon. In the evening we will hold a talk on nutrition and recovery with some light hearted competitions followed by an evening meal. Some will head to bed after...some to the pub!

A later start on Sunday morning allows everyone to have breakfast and further opportunities to chat with our coaches, elite athletes and industry experts before we offer a range of long run options form mid morning onwards. A final Q&A after lunch closes the camp!
