Events

Performance Endurance Training (PET) has organised a virtual challenge set around the North Coast 500 in Scotland which is 515 miles long with 10,498m of climb.  The challenge if you accept it is to run/walk your way as a team around the route which is divided into 42 stages of varying lengths from 2.6miles to 21.3miles. 

Each team will be made up of between 5 – 10 members; all members must be aged 18 and over.  Each stage must be completed in one single run/walk by a team member and the time recorded for that stage.  Remember to play to your team’s strengths when you divide up the 42 stages; they can completed in any order as long as they are all completed within the week.

There are 16 stages over HM distance and they should be undertaken by experienced  longer distance members of your team.  Teams will have 7 days to complete the challenge between 0500hrs Monday 12 April to 2000hrs Sunday 18 April 2021.

This challenge is being organised to raise much needed funds for SAMH; Scotland’s largest mental health charity – https://www.samh.org.uk/  As we all know, mental health difficulties affect one in four people in any one year and our current situation has heightened the challenges for many people.  Within this challenge there are no prizes for the winning teams just lots of kudos and that warm fuzzy feeling you get from doing something good with likeminded people. If you want a medal buy one, knit one or get out the paper mache.

Train to Race camp  – to be rescheduled due to Covid, Great Glen Way (final venue tbc). This camp is for those runners who are keen to understand more about how to convert the process of training to the outcome when racing.  Athletes will be taken through discussions on how to get the most out of your training  as well as training with others and the opportunity to eat, sleep and talk running.
The endurance sessions for the weekend is: Friday evening short run option depending on travel plans, Saturday – main session and conditioning session (sessions based on profile of runners), Sunday – long run options on the GGW.

There will be a single run on the 1st day, followed by two days of double runs early am and mid pm.  Accommodation (with hot tub) is booked in Blairgowrie and will act as our base for the long weekend, with all minibus transport and support provided.  The ultra is a challenge and not a race, with the group supporting each other to successfully, and with lots of laughs, complete the miles each day.  If you have ever wanted to do an ultra, how about starting with a multi-day ultra.  Challenge cost £300 including shared accommodation, minibus transport, first aid and insurance, all meals except evening meals.

Training Camp Package

Do your running friends / squad / club arrange training camps and would benefit from the input of qualified and experienced Endurance and/or S&C coaches?  Sarah Dunnett and I have current extensive experience of delivering training camps for junior and senior athletes from club to GB standard, focusing on road running, cross country, mountain and trail running. 

These training camps provide the perfect blend of endurance sessions, insightful discussions on thought provoking topics such as motivation, goal setting, S&C, injury prevention, nutrition, the balance of training, tapering, the perfect athlete and many more, and are guaranteed to enthuse and educate your group.  The camp content will be set against the goals of the group identified through a  questionnaire for individual attendees.
