August 26 - 30, 2020 - Estes Park, Colorado, USA
This camp is for you if you are somewhere between a beginner and an advanced runner. Maybe you’re someone that has an idea there is more ability inside you that you have not connected with yet. Perhaps you’re looking to set a PR in a half marathon, or work towards your first marathon. The focus for this camp is to learn how to explore your limits, and give you all the tools you need to lift your running to a level that you didn’t know you could achieve.
We recommend this camp if you are a woman runner that can already run a 10K distance at 10 – 12 min/mile or faster at home elevation, and is interested in learning more about trail running. If you’re not sure if this camp is the right fit for you, feel free to contact us to discuss your status and which camp could be the best fit for you. This camp contains many of the key components of our full intermediate camp, in a compact form.
Each day will start with a run, and includes a variety of cross training activities like hiking, and a floor session. Every run and activity is guided by an expert and certified guide or coach.
Have you ever seen yourself run? Most runners haven’t! We will video your running at the beginning of the camp and then review each video and give feedback on tips that can help improve running efficiency. We then focus on those highlighted key factors of your form during the camp runs, so that you have an opportunity to improve your running technique. We then take another video at camp end for review and comparison with the initial video. This gives each camper a wonderful opportunity to see in real time how the changes suggested have had a positive impact on each runner’s form.
We will also cover effective sustainable training plans, sharing the guiding principles of Lydiard Training, including how to build your own training plan towards a goal race.
The camp takes place in the gorgeous mountain town of Estes Park, Colorado, with the majority of the runs taking place between 7,500 feet and 9,000 feet surrounded by the backdrop of the majestic Rocky Mountains. All of the runs will be challenging in their own way, while none of them will be at a fast pace.
Each camp includes accommodation (2 women per room sharing in a double room – 2 in bunk room – single room and shared room options available), coaching, video review of running form, all meals, water and juices, all sessions, group transport, journals, towels, bedding and a women’s cut tech tee shirt. Camp starts at 4.00 pm on day one, and finishes at 10.00 am on day five. Interactive workshop sessions will cover everything you will need to change your running!
