Get away, have fun and take your training & connections to an exciting level!
Just to mention a few of our many camps, we enjoyed our exciting first international Rejoov running retreat at Thanyapura Sports resort in Phuket in May 2016. 28 of us (including 6 kids) enjoyed a wonderful combination of warm rain, sunshine, exercise and rest plus a great opportunity to socialise, eat great food and knock back the occasional beer, wine or cocktail. Read Chris Truscott's blog about the experience: http://runnerct.blogspot.com.au/2016/06/thanyapura-training-thailand.html
In November 2016 we had a fabulous fun weekend camp at the Entrance on the Central Coast tying in the local Park Run, Central Coast half marathon/10k, swimming, BBQs and other activities. Many families were involved & "celebrity heads", kids races around the park & the town pelican feeding show were just 3 of the hits!
In April - Easter 2017 we had a most remarkable 4 day trip to The Red Centre with an evening at the Earth Sanctuary, swim in the Ellery Big Hole in Western MacDonnell Ranges, The Telegraph Station and run along the Larapinta Trail, Kings Canyon, Kings Creek Station glamping, helicopter rides, quad biking, Ayers Rock, The Olgas just to name a few start attractions and experiences.
In July 2017 we had our Rejoov winter weekend retreat celebrating Yulefest at the award winning Fairmont Resort in the Blue Mountains. This weekend was set up for a fantastic combination of relaxation, cuisine and great running, strength and cross training. We had 30 adults & 14 kids so it was an action packed weekend! The hotel boasted an indoor heated lap pool, gym, kids play centre (with our organised babysitters) plus sensational views from the restaurant and lounge bar as we warmed ourselves by the fire with a glass of hot gluwein.
In January 2018 Rejoov Runners hosted the official 6ft Track training camp (with the event itself on 10th March 2018). This camp was open to all runners from all clubs. We stayed overnight in the very iconic Jenolan Caves House, with buffet dinner and lunch included. We ran on most of the trail itself via our planned training run on Saturday and long run Sunday and provided invaluable advice and practical sessions around core strength, stretching, nutrition and generally what to expect on the big day.
Over Easter 2018: Thurs 29th March – Tues 3rd April we hosted our 3rd Red Centre Running Camp along the spectacular Larapinta Trail. It certainly was an adventure of a lifetime on one of Australia's most spectacular trails. The Larapinta Trail goes from the Telegraph Station in Alice Springs to Mt. Sonder (West MacDonnell Ranges). The trail is 223km in its entirety, however, we covered various sections with a swim in waterholes at the end of each run.
