These camps are for you if you are a beginner runner, or someone that is returning to running after a prolonged break. The focus is on giving your running a jump start, and to teach you all the key factors that will help you grow and develop your running base, and to keep you healthy and active for many years to come.

We recommend that by the time camp starts you should already be able to run a 10K distance at 12-15 min/mile pace or faster at your home elevation. If you haven’t run a 10K before, or maybe not for some time, then we can set you up with a program that will enable you to be ready for camp in May or June. Make sure to let us know your current status and we can work with you from there.

Each day will start with a run, and includes a variety of cross training activities like hiking, pool running, and rock climbing. 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.

Workshops during the camp will cover subjects like positive running, nutrition, training plans, mental focus, guided imagery, and more. Each camper will leave camp with a clear goal and action plan to enable that goal to be achieved.

The camp takes place in the gorgeous mountain town of Estes Park, Colorado, with runs between 7,500 feet and 9,000 feet surrounded by the backdrop of the majestic Rocky Mountains.
