Trail Running Coaching Holidays

The Location
You'll be staying in one of our fantastic alpine chalets in the stunning little Alpine town of Morzine. Morzine is approximately an hour outside of Geneva, on the French Swiss border, and is surrounded by amazing trails and beautiful scenery.

Travel to Morzine
Upon your arrival at Geneva airport you’ll be met by your transfer driver for the short hop out to Morzine. Depending on what time you arrive you’ll have a chance to get out a see some of the local area before sitting down to get to know the rest of the group over a delicious 3 course dinner.

Daily Routine
Each day will follow a pre-set routine, but believe us it will feel anything but! We’ll start the day with a hearty breakfast of eggs, porridge, cereals, fruit and fresh French bread. After breakfast there will be a short discussion/workshop, a mobility training session and then a group trail run.

Each day the running session is different, and can be adapted to suit your personal goals – whether that be hill training, descending or speed training. We’ll be getting in some long runs, but also a couple of additional easy runs for those who want to.

There will be plenty to keep you busy on the running front, but also some time to relax and enjoy your holiday too!

Ideally you should be comfortably able to run 10 miles in one go as a minimum, and be running regularly 3-4 times per week at least.

Charlie will be jumping onto the phone with each applicant to ensure check that they will be a good fit for the trail running coaching holiday, and that the week will help them meet their own personal goals. The overriding objective is to make sure that all participants have a really great week.

Included in the cost of your holiday:

• Comfortable accommodation in a fantastic alpine chalet
