We not only bring you the best races in the world, we now bring you the best camps to prepare for them.
We’re super excited to announce our first multi-stage endurance camp run in association with our partners in Dubai InnerFight. To launch this exciting new project we’re running an EPIC competition! If you want to win an ALL EXPENSES PAID (including flights and accommodation) place on this camp with any +1 you choose, all you have to do is follow us on Instagram (which you’re probably already doing) and tag the person you would want to go with. You can also enter the competition by filling out this form.
This camp is perfect for anyone training for a multistage race in 2020, such as Ultra X Jordan. However, anyone can enter and anyone can WIN this prize. Not only will one person (and a plus one), get an all expenses paid trip from the UK but we will also be inviting NINE others to attend the camp for FREE!
Here’s a brief itinerary:
Thursday: Arrive in Dubai and spend the morning relaxing at your leisure. At lunchtime we will transfer you into the desert for a sunset 30km run to our beautiful desert camp.
Friday: Morning: we will begin a big day (50km) of trail running. Dunes, dried up riverbeds, etc.
Afternoon: our experts will take you through their top tips for thriving in a multistage ultra environment. Think kit, food prep and body maintenance.
Evening: we will relax with some cold beers and a BBQ.
Saturday: In the morning we will enjoy a morning 30km run before transferring back to Dubai where you will be able to do as you wish.
Sunday: Return flight to the UK
Winners will be announced and contacted before the end of January and will have 48 hours to confirm before the prize rolls over.
