Ultra Made Training Camps

Ultra Made ‘SPRING’ Training Camp Info



Where and When…

The Ultra Made’SPRING’ training camp will be held from Friday 4th October 2013 – Monday 7th October 2013 at Bright, Vic Alps. The location set amongst some of the most pristine trails Australia’s high country has to offer, with fully self contained mountain lodge accommodation.

Is it for You…

This camp is designed to teach runners specific training tools/techniques ready to get them in the best shape for the upcoming Ultra-Trail-Mountain running season ahead.


- Training to race at your Peak
- Creating the Optimal Stride
- Recovery for Ultra-trail
- Performance Nutrition
and an introduction to ‘Performance through Presence’

No doubt to add to this camp will also be many valuable insights gathered from my time with Kilian and the Salomon Team in Font Romeu, Spain as well as Gretel’s insights into running a new race record over 100km in the Alps and running big Mountain events such as Mt Fuji Ultra-trail.

Alongside this we will ensure plenty of time to talk about trail gear, race plans, specific training programs and the ever hot topic at our camps – Gour-met food and Piccolos! We will also be using some of the trails which our next race-camp in November – ‘Bright Climbathon’ will be run over to get those of you looking at running this well and truly comfortable climbing.

The Camp Outline…

The ‘Ultra Made’ itinerary focuses on creating the “K” (feeling – as Coops like to call it).

Learning to run with balance, focus and energy whilst on the trail and mountains!


The group presentations will be combined with 3 ‘on the trail’ running sessions (6-18km trail runs) amongst the surrounding single track and fire trails used in Bright Alpine Climbs, Bogong 2 Hotham, Mt Feathertop Skyrun and Alpine 100 Ultra races.

For those able to stay on, there will also be the running of two ‘TrailVert’ styled ultras on the Monday morning of around 30 and 50km. A great opportunity to practice new mountain running techniques and also trial some of the Ultra Made camp endorsed running gear by Salomon, Suunto and Hammer Nutrition.

In between training sessions there will be time for mountain biking, recovery baths (in local mountain rivers), slacklining, relaxing in the National park or viewing one of Ultra running’s original races- Western States 100.

Salomon, Suunto and Hammer Nutrition gear trial…

As leaders in the field of performance and trail running gear, Salomon, Suunto and Hammer nutrition have offered the opportunity for runners to trial some of their ‘Ultra Made’ products! Ask Coops about the range upon booking camp position.
