Friday 19th - Sunday 21st July 2019

Chamonix

Welcome to Camp Endeavour a new breed of training camp designed to take you to the next level in trail running. We are in awe of Chamonix and the incredible trails it offers. It really is an experience that you do not want to miss out on.

Immerse yourself in the landscape, the peace, the tranquility. Soak up that mountain air. Every which way you look the towering Mt Blanc is there to remind you just how small we are, with the trails vanishing into stunning rocky descents and alpine forests.

Maverick Race has teamed up with GB Ultra Runner Tom Payn and his partner in crime Rachel Bonn Payn - both exceptional runners. They organise their own retreats - RunNamasteEat which is a running, yoga & plant based nutrition business grown from their combined love for nature, human movement and a desire to live out each day to the very fullest.

Tom and Rachel will be taking you on a journey; from a bespoke training plan before you arrive in Chamonix, to coaching you throughout the weekend. Once you come off the mountain they will offer you tips and yoga sessions to help you develop, recover and relax ready for the adventure.

You will receive support from our superb event partners who will be providing you with extra treats; inov-8 will provide demo kit to give you the opportunity to test out their latest kit; Precision Hydration will offer you a bespoke hydration plan, followed up with all the hydration you’ll need for the mountains. All runners will also receive a goodie bag on arrival with kit from Inov-8, Maverick Apparel, and Precision Hydration

Camp Endeavour is suitable for all levels of runner, we will have Mountain leaders on hand with Tom & Rachel so you will always be in safe hands. Running in Chamonix is best done with people who know the area, this means you will get the most out of the location and really get to see the best trails on offer.

Once you have signed up we will be in touch with you to find out all of your Personal requirements and your current running ability. This will help Tom and Rach develop your personalised training plan in the lead up to your Trip to Chamonix.

We want you to have a fantastic experience and in no way is this camp aimed at elite runners - it’s all about you. We want it to be fun - a trip that will leave you thinking about the Mountains long after you return home.
