Adharanand teams up with two of the stars of his new book The Rise of the Ultra Runners, elite trail runner Tom Bonn Payn and his wife, Rachel Bonn Payn, for a long weekend in the mountains around trail-running mecca Chamonix.

This is a running training camp for ultra runners and those wanting to run in the mountains. It is here that the famous UTMB ultra marathon starts and finishes, and over the course of three days we will explore some of those trails in the company of our hosts as well as two experienced mountain guides.

The runs will be long but the pace will be easy, with plenty of time to explore the mountains and take in the incredible scenery. In the evenings we will return to recover in the comfort of the wonderful Hotel Alpina in Chamonix.


full itinerary to come but camp will include:

  • Up to three guided runs through the mountains, on the trails that form part of the famous UTMB route (including a night run)

  • Talks from Adharanand, Tom and Rachel on their experiences of ultra running, as well as tips and advice for getting through and competing in an ultra marathon or mountain race

  • Yoga-for-runners sessions with Rachel

  • Training tips and advice on preparing for an ultra

  • Time to relax in the beauty and splendour of Chamonix


The Cost Includes;

  • Three nights accommodation in the Alpina Hotel, including use of the spa and fitness room

  • All meals, including packed lunches on the runs

  • Qualified guides to lead the trail runs in the mountains

  • Talks by Adharanand, Tom and Rachel

Running in the mountains can be tough, so even though the pace on the runs will be steady and relaxed, with plenty of rests, we recommend that as a minimum you are able to comfortably run a half marathon on trails without stopping
