"We all enjoyed our weekend in the Highlands and it really is a great set-up that you have for running holidays in a great place...... I've been on plenty training camps but this was a first for a running holiday and an experience I enjoyed and would recommend to others. I never really thought about running all weekend, just got up and got carried along through the Highlands, the surroundings were just so perfect that you wanted to blend in and not disturb the peace."Sonia O'Sullivan, World Champion and Olypmic 5000m Silver Medallist (and special guest speaker at our training weekend September 2008!)
