Friday

Arrive at the cottage in Llanrwst, North Wales. Set in the beautiful rolling hillsides of Snowdonia national park, your accommodation is a stunning detached Welsh long cottage, with the original part of the cottage dating back some 300 years. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished to make your stay lovely and comfortable.

Get your running kit and head torch on, it’s time for a night run to get everyone warmed up for a weekend of trail running. It will be a gentle run and you’ll be out for around an hour. Just enough to experience running under a starry night sky, far from any light pollution, and get to know your coach and fellow runners.

Back at the cottage you’ll have hot showers and a hearty wholesome dinner waiting for you. Freshen up, tuck in and get a good nights sleep.

Saturday

Enjoy breakfast in the dining room, where your running coach will give a briefing on the plan for today.

Head out into the beautiful Gwydir Forest for a longer trail run. Guided by your coach, you’ll explore a stunning part of Snowdonia National Park. During the run your coach will be able to observe your technique, offering 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.

Gather back at the hall for a wholesome lunch and a debrief on this morning’s run.

Top tips

This afternoon your coach will run a training and technique workshop, aimed at helping you to identify specific areas to work on to improve your performance. Together with tips on how to create an effective training plan, you’ll be set for a successful summer of trail running.

Time to stretch

Our yoga teacher, Kirsty Martuccio, 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 You will be guided through 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.

Sunday

Morning run

Embrace the new day with an early morning trail run. Freshly loaded up 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 of Snowdonia 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.
Today your run will include running through another beautiful part of the Snowdonia National Park – a pretty epic way to conclude your running weekend!

Had a great time in the most amazing…
Had a great time in the most amazing Welsh scenery. I've done 2 trips with these guys. If you like adventure, the most epic views, then you'll love these tours.

The running coach/guide had to self-isolate due to slow covid testing. But everything worked great remote, overall very professional and admirable organisation in difficult times.

Spring Trail Running Weekend
Thank you for an excellent trail running weekend. Really enjoyed exploring a quieter side of Wales, getting off the beaten track with Tim, taking in the amazing views and then stretching it all out at the end with Poppy's yoga. Very well fed with wholesome food using locally sourced ingredients. Left the camp feeling revived and relaxed, with some excellent tips, advice and a training plan to take my trail running to the next level. Thank you!
