We have been running our young athlete camps for 12 successful years. The camps are designed for 12-17 year olds middle distance runners of all abilities to improve their knowledge and performance whilst enjoying a fun packed camp agenda.

It's the perfect opportunity for them to meet and make new friends too. After 11 wonderful years at Wellington College, to ensure we offer the best dates for young athletes to attend, this year's camp will take place at a fabulous location in the Cotswolds, Westonbirt School



  • Camp Dates : 27th -31st July, 2020
  • Led by a team of expert UKA coaches
  • Set in the stunning grounds of Westonbirt School, Gloucestershire which is less than a 30 minute drive from Stroud.
  • Residential or non residential 5-day camp

  • Up to 7 fully paid scholarship places available as part of our support for young athlete development



As part of our continuing commitment to support young athletes, Full Potential is making available up to 7 residential scholarship places for our 2020 camp. We hope to be able to announce further scholarship places once we've heard from our previous kind supporters and new ones we are working to get onboard.



Westonbirt is a co-educational independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 11 to 18 that was founded in 1928. The historical house and school stands in 210 acres of private estate consisting of woodland, immaculate playing fields and fine gardens. The grounds provide us with a stunning and safe environment with an endless choice of running tracks and trails during our camps.

The main school buildings and boarding houses enjoy fine settings surrounded by this glorious estate. As sole occupants of the school for the week, our accommodation will be in the main school. The boarding houses have common rooms with TV as well as having their own kitchens, which are stocked daily with tea, squash, coffee and snacks.

Westonbirt is situated in Gloucestershire, just 30 mins from junction 13 of the M5 or 20 mins north of junction 17 of the M4.

Stroud train station is less than 30 minutes away which enjoys superb rail links to London. Full travel details will be provided within the pre-camp information, however if you want to find out more details about the school and its location then click here and you’ll be taken to the Westonbirt school website.
