Details

Start 2020 with a little treat just for you! Come and join us for a long weekend of running, fitness, fun and delicious food at our home in the beautiful Norfolk countryside.

Our weekend break is all about having fun with like-minded people whilst improving your running on the beautiful routes that surround us. When the hard work is done we’ll enjoy some great wine and food together.

The weekend is a little different to our other weekend breaks as we aren’t running in a wine region (although Norfolk does produce some great wine!) it is more even more focused on improving your running and preparing for whatever challenges you have in store in 2020. Don’t panic though as wine, which we source on our other adventures, will always feature at dinner!

 

Appreciate England in a New Way

We know we are biased, but having travelled to countless wine regions around the World, we still think you can’t beat the magic of an English vineyard.

Situated on the Kent/Sussex border we are in the perfect location to run beautiful trails, explore local vineyards and enjoy delicious wine and local produce!

 

Available dates 2021:

30th April – 2nd May and 11th – 13th June

The Running
Whether you consider yourself a tortoise or a hare, you will be catered for on this running holiday. The only requirement is that you can run 10K comfortably in under 70 mins, don’t worry if you can run it in half the time, you’ll be equally challenged as we’ll gather your current paces and goals beforehand in order to tailor each of our sessions to you.

We keep things interesting by varying the sessions and routes (all of which are beautiful), they include a run to a local vineyard, some speed work, and a long run (of varying distances) to round off the weekend! We will also introduce you to strengthening exercises and key stretches, both crucial elements to helping runners stay injury free whilst improving their running!

Please note, everything is optional, it’s your weekend!

 

The Accommodation
Our base for the weekend is the beautiful Oxney Organic Estate, an award winning organic farm and vineyard situated within running distance of numerous vineyards including Oxney, Chapel Down and Gusbourne, making it the perfect location for exploring the region. The barns are spacious with great communal areas including a games room and a tennis court.

The closest station is Appledore, which is only 1 hour journey from London (changing at Ashford International).
