Description

I invite you to join me on this 4-day trail running training camp, where we will push each other to new highs and achieve our goals by running around the beautiful paths and trails in the shadow of the majestic Mont Blanc, where we will train and prepare for the same path as the 90km du Mont Blanc race in the world-famous and internationally-renowned region of Chamonix.

The stunning, tranquil and idyllic area of Chamonix in France has been attracting visitors and outdoor enthusiasts for decades, such is the stature with which its scenery and conditions are held in. Trail running in Summer is a particularly popular pursuit, as the paths and trails available are second to none owing to the superb terrain and abundance of stimulating views.

We meet on the first day at our hotel in Chamonix, and from there we head off to trail run in earnest, as we go about completing the course that runs between Chamonix and Planpraz.

The subsequent three days follow a very similar pattern, as we go from Planpraz to Vallorcine, Vallorcine to The Wood and then finally The Wood back to Chamonix.

This is excellent preparation for the 90km du Mont Blanc, as we will be following the exact path of the race, giving you the best training possible.

Along the way you will be exposed to some of the most pretty and alluring views and scenery in Europe, as the forests, snow-capped mountains (including the towering Mont Blanc) and pristine lakes, combined with the clean, crisp, fresh air makes for a pleasing and intoxicating experience.

We finish the training on day 4 and head back to the hotel where we started, hopefully feeling fitter, happier and more determined to run at greater heights and distances!

Improve your fitness and take in the glory of Chamonix all in 4 days – book now to experience!

I also offer trail running from Chamonix to Zermatt, here!

Alternatively, I offer guided trail running in the Alps, here!
