Who should do Trail Camps?

These quality weekend getaways are aimed mainly at intermediate to advanced trail runners who can already eat 15km+ offroad runs for breakfast, but want to take their trail running – and health/awareness/impact on the world – to a new level.

Not there yet? We will also cater for runners who still aspire to run 15km before breakfast, depending on group size. This will be done through a second group running a slower pace.

Frequent re-groups for tips and feedback are the order of the day.

You’ll gain new insights in everything from nutrition, to gear choices, to pacing, to mental techniques, to how to train for races.

Make August 2017 the beginning of the best year of your life (yet). Join us in beautiful Pondoland for an unforgettable weekend away.
