next camp

6–8 April 2018

Details:

This retreat is open to anyone passionate about running and keen to enjoy training alongside likeminded people. You don’t need to be a Run Crew member to attend, all you need is a love of running and a sense of adventure.

Every camp attendee will receive an awesome running shirt thanks to The North Face Australia, valued at $50.00.

Camps cater for all levels and while this one will be targeted at those preparing for UTA, it would still be beneficial to all distance runners. From beginners to Olympians, everyone will take away some great experiences. The beauty of the location and structure of camps means there’s something for everyone. What’s more, the views are spectacular, the food is amazing, plus the company you’ll have will make your time when training and relaxing all the more enjoyable.

Features include talks from industry experts, training sessions with professional coaches and top athletes, group discussions and presentations relating to specific races. There will also be ample time to rest and relax or explore some of the local attractions.

Recovery massages will also be available at an additional cost.

We’ll once again be staying at KCC, set amongst the eucalypt forest a stone’s throw from the Finish line of the Ultra Trail Australia events coming up in May.
