What to expect

Itinerary for the 3 day trail running training camp in North Wales.

Day 1.
4.30pm: arrive at your camp location in North Wales and check-in to your cosy bell tent. Each large tent has comfortable futon beds and bedding, a log burner to keep you warm in the evenings, full equipped kitchen and a private decking area with seating.

6.30pm: get kitted out in your running gear, put on your head torch and head out on your night to begin your weekend of trail running. Tim will lead you on a gentle run and you'll be out for around an hour. Far from any light pollution, you'll experience running under the starry night sky and have the perfect opportunity to get to know your fellow runners.

7.30pm: enjoy a warm shower back at camp followed by a hearty dinner. Freshen up, tuck in and enjoy a restful sleep.

Day 2.
8.00am: breakfast will be in the large communal cabin, where Tim will give you a briefing on the plan for today.

10.00: you'll head out into the limestone hills of Llangollen for a longer trail run. Explore a stunning part of the Welsh countryside, guided by Tim. During the run, Tim will offer tips to help you get the most output from your effort.

The trail running camp is about enjoying great trails and great company whilst learning from experts. So there’s no need to worry about the pace, we’ll only go as fast as the slowest person. As long as you’re comfortable running for around 2 hours, at whatever pace, you’ll be fine.

13.00: we'll meet back up at the cabin for a hearty lunch and a debrief from Tim on this morning's run.

2.00pm: this afternoon Tim will run a training and technique workshop, aimed at helping you to identify specific areas to work on to improve your trail running performance. Add this to your tips from Tim for creating an effective trail running plan and your trail running will be on top form.

Our yoga teacher, Kirsty Martuccion, will join us this afternoon too. As well as the mindful movement and flexibility associated with yoga, her workshop will focus on connecting your breath to movement. As runners we often focus on the physical side of running, but improving your breathing technique can bring great benefits in performance too.

Kirsty has developed a yoga flow specifically designed to establish that connection between your breath and your movement. Enabling you to run more relaxed, and therefore for longer.

6.00pm: after a full day of trail running and workshops, kick back and relax. Dinner will be a hearty affair to make sure you’re fully refuelled. Enjoy the social side of trail running, sipping hot chocolate and toasting marshmallows with new friends.

Day 3.
7.30am: embrace the new day with a sunrise trail run. Armed with knowledge from yesterday’s workshops, you’ll be ready to start putting our professionals’ advice into practice.

The run will be a similar length to yesterday, so expect to be out in the hills for around 2 hours. As before the emphasis is on enjoyment, not pace, and you can begin to experiment with the tips you’ve been given.

10.00am: back at camp there will be a breakfast feast awaiting you! Bacon butties devoured, all that’s left to do is pack up your things and say a fond farewell to your running buddies.
