Running

You can do as much or as little running as you like whilst with us over the weekend. There’s no pressure to join in with everything and anything you do can be done at your own level of fitness and mojo!

Saturday

In the morning it’s customary for us to be parkrun tourists and pop along to one of the local parkruns – this year, oh yes, it’s Bakewell parkrun!
We’ll have a workshop or talk early afternoon followed by a group coached run on the wonderful High Peak Trail that passes right by the Mount Cook Adventure Centre.Sunday 
This year we’re going to race en masse at Carsington Water in the Marathon Talk Half Marathon Champs!

Organisers of the Carsington Water Half Marathon (Nice Work) have given Marathon Talk Run Campers a discount on entry fee to the half marathon so we’re all going to get stuck in! (Don’t worry, there is also a 10k if that’s more your thing).  Entry discount codes given on Run Camp sign up.

Accommodation

We are taking over the entire Mount Cook Adventure Centre for the weekend so will have all of the centre’s excellent facilities to ourselves. (yes, even the zip wire!).
All rooms are ensuite and on a single sex shared basis (max 4 persons). Rooms will be allocated by us and shared the week before the camp.
On booking you can request to share with your friends. There are a very small number of double rooms for couples that can be requested on booking and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. There is not a single supplement available. But don’t worry, we’re all friendly.
Other things
Special Guest! Each year we invite a special guest for a Saturday evening talk. We’re not sure who that will be yet – but it’ll be amazing for sure!We’ll also have the infamous Marathon Talk Saturday Quiz night with Tony’s Trials and there is talk of Tom showing his Strictly skills at an evening disco.We’d love to see you at the 6th Marathon Talk Run Camp!
It does sell out pretty quickly so if you want to come and have a great weekend of running and laughing with like-minded, friendly people then please book soon!
