I love weekend training camps. It’s not just the opportunity to spend extended time on the trails, it’s all that goes with them – the camaraderie, laughs, mutual learning opportunities and watching less experienced people grow in confidence. Then there’s the food, an occasional beer and that amazing sense of satisfaction that flows through you on the Sunday evening drive home. Pretty much a perfect weekend every time!
After talking about the idea with Vibram Tarawera Ultramarathon race director, Paul Charteris, for a long time, I have finally got around to organising the ultimate training camp weekend for February 2013. Based at Lake Okataina, near Rotorua the Tarawera Trails camp gives people the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the VTUM course. But you don’t have to be doing the race to get plenty from this weekend. Check out the details and if you fancy a fun & instructive weekend running wild with a great bunch of likeminded people flick me an email.
