I wanted to say thank you so much for such a fantastic couple of days, the group got so much out of their time in Loughborough and I think that everything they experienced surpassed their expectations.

I have had countless messages from parents saying that their children came home buzzing about the experience, so a great success!
Katie - Parent & Group Organiser

Hi guys can I just say thank you for a very enjoyable weekend. You pitched everything perfectly for my group and made it both enjoyable and informative. I have done a number of camps over the years and this was the best so far

Loughborough Training Focus Camps Private Group Summary

If your group loves running & wants to improve: Training Focus Camps are for you

Our standard offering is a 2day, 1night camp, usually a weekend, and prices start at £250.  For your private group, we can adapt to your preferences. So whether you want a single day camp, or a week-long stay we can provide an engaging itinerary that meets your requirements. 

Our camps focus on high-performance coaching and athlete education, you will learn from industry-leading experts and leave equipped with the knowledge and inspiration to improve your running.

During the camp, you will be coached through seminar sessions, practical & theoretical workshops, and running sessions under the watchful eye of our expert team. We will also arrange an exciting Q&A and athlete meet up with an elite athlete to inspire your team long beyond the camp itself. 

The camps are action-packed; Full of high-quality, engaging content, and stimulating training sessions. There is of course, also time to relax and recover between training with planned downtime and social sessions.

Your camp will be led by a Head Coach and a Camp Coordinator, with additional Sports Performance Experts leading sessions on their specialty areas. You will have comprehensive pre-camp customer support from our Loughborough based office. 

Typically, a camp will include running specific sessions led by our Head Coach, and additional sessions led by our Sports Performance Experts on their specialist subjects. For example, on previous camps we have been joined by elite Sports Physiotherapists who have coached our runners on biomechanics, running form, and injury mitigation strategies. Your camp may include experts on Strength & Conditioning, Sports Psychology or Sports Nutrition.  We can provide this itinerary for you or work with you to meet your group’s specific demands. For example, if there is a specific area of sports science that you would like to include.
