Description

Combloux is a beautiful mountain village in the Haute-Savoie region of France. With stunning views of the French Alps, this wonderful commune is the focal point of this 3 day woman’s trail running course.

This course in Combloux is an excellent introduction for women in the world of trail running. Some examples of what we will cover include the following.

  • Advice on proper diet
  • Proper stretching techniques
  • A race school to improve your stride
  • Downhill technical analysis

And by the end of the course, I can assure you that you will be prepared for longer and more challenging trail running adventures in the future.

Along with what you will learn on this trip, you will also get to see a great deal of stunning scenery as well. The views in Combloux of the Alps and nearby valleys are amazing. And the trails we will be running along will only increase the scope of those admirable views.

Another extraordinary advantage of this trip is the 4 star hotel you will be staying in for 2 nights. The hotel is equipped with all of the luxuries you could want. A few examples include a jacuzzi, pool, sauna and a patio where you can admire the famed Mont Blanc mountain (4,810m).

Trail running is a treat for anybody who loves the outdoors. And for 3 days, I would like to instruct women how to properly enjoy this exhilarating activity.

So send me a request and join me for some great trail running in Combloux in the Alps of France. I will be happy to guide you.

I also lead another 3 day beginner level trail running trip in the gorgeous Beaufortain valley.

J'ai eu l'opportunité de participer à deux stages, l'un dans le Cantal, l'autre à Chamonix. Un grand plaisir de partager une passion commune avec des participants très sympas de tous niveaux et de tous horizons. Caroline, une grande professionnelle de la montagne et du trail, n'a pas son pareil pour organiser ces rencontres, et tout cela dans une super ambiance et des paysages à couper le souffle.

J'ai fait deux stages avec Caro, c'est devenu une amie, et chacun de ces stages m'a laissé des souvenirs inoubliables. Le premier stage en 2014 en Haute Savoie à l'occasion du Trail du Gypaète. Le Deuxième stage en 2015, dans les Calanques de Marseille. Ces stages auront été parfaits à tous les niveaux: Paysages grandioses (on sent qu'ils ont été choisis avec soin), des échanges techniques avec des "pros" (un grand moment quand Caro inspecte les sacs à dos...), pleins de conseils nutrition - mode de vie etc... La découverte des autres stagiaires mais aussi des autres encadrants (très bon contact avec Guillaume Lenormand par ex.). Des conditions matérielles top (hébergement, repas, organisation etc...). Seule critique: le temps passe trop vite, c'est toujours trop court! Donc au final quand c'est fini, on n'a qu'une envie... c'est de repartir pour un autre stage! Et vu le nombre de personnes que l'on croise sur les stages qui en sont à leur n-ième participation, je peux affirmer que ce sentiment est partagé!

Pour moi le trail c'est avant tout la découverte de nouveaux territoires, les rencontres et les échanges avec d'autres passionnés, le respect de la nature. Mes 3 stages avec Caroline m'ont permis de retrouver ces fondamentaux dans un cadre toujours bon enfant, mais pas moins professionnel. Caroline est une passionnée de montagne et de tout ce qui y touche (sport, culture, gastronomie) et elle sait comme personne transmettre sa passion et ses bons conseils, toujours avec le sourire. Je garde un excellent souvenir des rencontres avec les autres stagiaires et mais aussi avec les autres encadrants, Guillaume, Seb, Cédric, Lydie et tant d'autres rencontrés au cours de ces stages.

Great experience, but definitely favored toward elite runners. One of our guides, JC, was amazing. He cared about every runner. The other guide seemed only to care for the elites (and himself). On top of Col des Montets, I asked if we had time to put on warm layers. The guide said "of course," but then quickly proceeded to run off with the entire group while I stood bare and freezing with my gear unpacked. Total lack of consideration for the well-being of his runners. Otherwise a great tour.
