There will be at least one run a day ranging from easy scenic runs, to speed and hill sessions. Each run will be tailored to all abilities so you never need to worry about keeping up or having to slow down! There will also be regular strength and conditioning sessions to help improve your running and support injury prevention.

During the week there will be a guided wine tasting, at least two visits to local Bordeaux wineries, excursions to local towns such as Saint Emilion, and plenty of down-time to explore or just read your book with a glass of wine! All meals, minus two dinners out, will be provided; you can expect wholesome and healthy crowd pleasers, and of course local wine will be provided at dinner!

Accommodation
Our base for the week is a beautiful old farmhouse in Saint-Quentin-de-Caplong, a small village between Bordeaux and Bergerac. Situated amongst the vines with beautiful outside spaces, an infinity pool, games room and unique French character, this property is the perfect place to relax during your down time.


The Wine
Bordeaux is one of the World’s most famous wine regions, renowned for producing outstanding, but often very expensive wine. During the week we will discover the best the region has to offer, including smaller producers where outstanding quality and value can be found. Through visits to local vineyards, restaurants and wine tasting dinners you will leave with a new knowledge and love for Bordeaux wines!
