Development camps

whitev2-trailmadeMountain Running Camps 2016

With a simple focus on connecting you back to the most important bit of running gear you have… You. Trailmade camps by Matt Cooper are designed to be the ‘running training’ you don’t have in your running program.

As an accomplished mountain athlete and performance coach, Coops combines his in-depth experience on the trail with unique coaching techniques to teach runners some of the simplest, yet often under-trained aspects of being a mountain/trail runner.IMG_0994

• training ‘to feel’ and listening to your inner sound
• creating calmness and flow in your movement
• understanding the energy of presence
• nourishing self with ‘wholesome’ foods
• breathing, conscious recovery and rest

While the ‘science’ of running can be found by anyone with a quick search of the net, the pure self-development of becoming a mountain runner, listening to the body, creating flow when things get tough and learning to be light as you play in the mountains… are teachings unwritten.

IMG_3185Camps are held in the Victorian Alps on some of Australia’s most scenic and mountainous trails hand picked by Coops and will include co-hosting by some of Australia’s quality ultra/mountain runners including Gretel Fortmann, Caine Warburton, Rob Mason, Mick Donges and more. Camp costs include all group coaching sessions over the weekend, athlete manual/reading materials, 3 nights accommodation (self-contained/shared), wholesome meals using local produce (2 x lunches/dinners), trailmade t-shirt and Salomon/Suunto gear trial.

Trailmade camps are also the Official Skyrunning ANZ camps throughout the Vic Alps.
