Ben Arogundade of the Daily Telegraph has written a great piece on Julia’s trail running camps in the Chamonix valley. Ben admits to a little nervousness at first about the running that lay ahead; whilst the distance was not a problem, trail running (off-road across undulating terrain in Chamonix at altitude) might well prove to be! For Ben trail running was a very different experience from anything before, however, our guests were all helped by an amazing team of specialists including a massage therapist, yoga and Pilates teachers and Neil Maclean-Martin, the Chamonix-based physio of the Team GB Olympic squad, all of whom assisted with everything needed!
Once into the swing of things Ben quickly adapted and became accustomed to the conditions and enjoyed immensely the camaraderie and spirit of the group. Indeed, Ben best summarises the enjoyment of the week in noting: “ The camp, by bringing us closer to nature, and giving us access to a range of specialist advisers, had improved us as runners which, in turn, meant that our lives were improved — and you can’t get better than that.”
