Beautiful Trails and Serious Workouts
We’ll join together in the communal cabin at around 8am for a delicious breakfast, Tim providing you with the brief for the day.
Then, you’ll head out for your longer trail run. Under the guidance of Tim, you’ll explore the beautiful, seldom trodden trails that wind through these Welsh hills, and you’ll get to see a side to the countryside most tourists wouldn’t.
During the run, Tim will observe and analyse your technique, providing tips that will help you get more out of your running action with less stress and effort.
Of course, this run is all about enjoying the natural scenery and the sociable nature of exploring it together, so don’t worry about pace. You’ll run great trails in a wonderful environment, learning tips from a true expert, all whilst running at a pace the entire group is comfortable with.
At the end of the two-hour run, we’ll arrive back at the camp for lunch and a debrief from Tim. Then, in the afternoon, we’ll start the second part of the day.
Tim will run a training and technique workshop, helping you identify specific areas for you to work on your performance, and finding points you can improve to make running easier and more effective.
Combine this with his tips on creating a summer training plan, and you have everything you need for a great summer of running.
We will also be joined by Poppy Backshall, a yoga instructor and long-distance runner. She’ll run a yoga workshop which, as well as having the usual benefits for flexibility and core strength, will focus greatly upon the relationship between movement and breathing.
Poppy has specifically designed a flow to support your breathing and movement, helping you understand the connection between the two, helping you run in a more relaxed fashion, and for longer.
This workshop takes place in the tranquility of the Welsh countryside, the sky huge above you, the only sounds those of nature.
After a full day of trail running and workshops, it’s time to relax. Dinner will be a huge, hearty, campfire-centric affair, ensuring you’re refueled and reenergised after your day of vigorous activity.
Finally, enjoy the sociable element of the trip, as you chill out by the campfire, toast marshmallows, and sip hot chocolate under the stunning night sky.
