Trail Run Coaching Week, Morzine, France -June 12th to 19th 2016
Join myself, Charlie Sharpe for a week of trail running improvements and breakthroughs in 2016. I've combined my knowledge and experience from over 4000 miles of races and 5 years of successfully coaching hundreds of clients in my training business, into an intensive coaching week where we will discover together what it takes to take your performance to the next level.
I've teamed up with local runners who live out in France and have an amazing knowledge of the area to ensure we hit the best spots too. We've hijacked a chalet, which looks fantastic and all in all it's going to be a great week!
Check out the trailer from the Spanish coaching week in 2015.
The coaching week is aimed at runners who would like to...
Improve their technique and feel more confident over varied terrain,
Discover how to strengthen the body, including the core, effectively and specifically to running,
Learn what to fuel your body with to improve your recovery and maintain high energy levels
Find out and try out safe ways to include quality speed training within your schedule,
Learn how to cruise up hills and tackle descents with confidence...
And... if you'd like to enjoy a fantastic week of trail running with like-minded people in (probably) nice weather!
We have all the logistics and planning taken care of, just book your own flights and enjoy the running!
The basic outline for the week...
We'll be staying approx 1 hour from Geneva Airport, close to the Swiss/ French boarder close to fantastic trails and stunning scenery in the valley.
You'll just need to get to the airport, on the scheduled day, we'll be there to meet you and bring you over to the chalet. Most meals are included too so aside from any souvenirs or odd snacks and drinks that you fancy you'll be taken care of. Charlie has teamed with the guys at Purple Marmot who have years of experience catering at a great standard for mountain enthusiasts. Full details regarding menu etc are finalised nearer to the time
Each day there will be a short discussion/ workshop on a different aspect of running, a mobility training session in the morning, different running sessions each day which can be adapted to your personal goals each with a different focus, hill training, descending, speed training, long runs and a couple of additional easy runs for those who want to. You'll have plenty to do but also some time to relax and enjoy your holiday of course!
You'll be running through some stunning scenery including technical trails and some fantastic, varied terrain.
How fit do I need to be?
Ideally you should be comfortably able to run 10 miles in one go as a minimum and be running 3-4 times per week at least. There is time to increase your fitness from now until June but if you're not sure, please just ask, I'll personally be jumping on the phone with each applicant to check we're a good fit and to ensure this really is going to be a great week for you, There's no pressure here and of course nobody will be left behind in the hills!
If this sounds like something you might be after, use the contact form below and Charlie will be in touch to have a chat with you about different options available and to see if it's going to fit your needs. If you have any specific queries, please use the comments section as you fill out the form.
You will need to book and pay for your own flights to Geneva.
I personally use skyscanner.net to find the best flights. If you're booking in from the UK flight prices can be less than a tank of fuel from the main airports at this time of year. Flight time is sub 2 hours from Manchester or Liverpool to Geneva!
