The 4 and 5-day tours provide a range of terrain, trail types, and weather conditions. Needless to say the views are stunning in this beautiful Alpine region. Overnights are spent in the excellent, comfortable mountain huts of the area.  

The first of 2 scheduled camps took place in early Jul 2016 with the second due to start August 8th.  “You can’t learn this stuff from a book, a podcast, or a video. I got more out of trying to copy Lizzy running those descents than from anything I’ve read, heard or seen” said running participant - Fergus Edwards

This running camp is ideal training and preparation for the UTMR, both stage race and ultramarathon, as well as other multi-day or ultramarathon races.

 

             

 

The camps are of benefit to all moderately experienced trail runners, to improve their running technique, strength and endurance, and to have racing and training questions addressed from an experienced elite athlete. They are ideal training and preparation for multi-day or ultramarathon races, and the scenery could not be more inspiring.
