Our Ultra Running Camp is run by Professional Running Coaches David Bone and Darren Strachen (Daz n Bone) along with Ultra Race Directors and Run Bulgaria Founders Tori Robinson and Elite International Ultra Runner & Coach Nathan Flear.
From the moment we meet you at Sofia airport we aim to foster some of that epic Ultra Running community vibe. The airport transfer will be full of getting you excited about the 4 days with us and no doubt some golden ultra running knowledge being shared. Once you have settled in the mountain “hotel/accommodation” we will then gather for our first leg-loosener run out in the crisp mountain air. You will already get a feel for the beauty of the surrounding snow-capped mountains and the vastness of the road and trail routes we will be traversing over the next few days.
Nathan/David and Darren will take you out on 2-3 runs per day. You can do as many of these as you like. Groups may be guided to split off towards the end so that the faster ones can be taken longer and faster (by Nathan) and others can find a more relaxed way of making it back with DaznBones David Bone and Darren Strachen
“In 2015 I was a total ultra novice and taking on Sparta was, in reality, beyond me. David being one of my crew managed to get me through that. I’m sure his experience will be as invaluable to you as it was to me.” James Ellis, Spartathlon finisher 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018.“
Breakfasts will be taken together with great nutritional fruits, pastries and great coffee where we can look at maps, discuss kit choices and generally make you ready for the days stunning runs. We will be providing thoughtful picnics that will contain food that you’ve helped pick and we pick up from the local French Bakery and great locally sourced providers. The runs have all been researched by us to provide the best conditions that mimic popular ultra races but also ensure that we take you to the most beautiful and scenic viewpoints that the Bulgarian mountains have to offer.
We certainly can help you make the most of Bansko with loads of recommendations.
On the other evenings (other than the Mountain Night run) of the we hope that you choose to join us on one or both of the nights where we will hand select the best places to eat and in a private setting we would love to share with you some of our insight into how we’ve faced Ultra Races over the past few years as finishers and survivors as well as crews and overall lovers of Ultra Running. These talks and presentations will be informal and designed to share lots of useful information whilst not imposing on the enjoyment and vibe of the evening***There will be an additional charge for the food and drink only – expected to be around £20-£30 per person.
In addition, we hope to make use of the sauna facilities to provide some specialist and practical “heat training advice”.
We have quite a few special extras being planned already which we are sure will make this a unique and unforgettable trip for everyone.
Whilst being a runcamp designed by and for Ultra runners we aim to be inclusive for all.
Accommodation will be a single double or twin room.
* Flights not included please check www.skyscanner.net for flight prices.
