Multi Day Desert Training Camp
This is for you if you are running a Multi-Stage Race in the Sahara, Atacama or Gobi Desert and want to learn exactly what's needed to ensure you reach your potential. Whether you are trying to win or just complete, our UK-based Desert Camp will give you all the advice and expertise you'll need to get you to the finish line.
Hosted by Performance Coach, Rory Coleman, the weekend incorporates a series of workshops on the Saturday followed by a day of running coaching on the Sunday at Merthyr Mawr sand dunes. The Desert Camp will cost you just £95. Throughout the weekend you will be able to test-run the latest lightweight kit. Expedition Foods have sponsored lunch on Saturday 19th August. The booking fee includes accommodation and dinner on the Saturday evening.
