Improve your performance, explore new trails and experience complete luxury at this Croatian trail running oasis on the stunning island of Brač.
Set in a beautiful private bay only 50 metres from crystal clear Adriatic Seas, Luxury Sports Breaks offers trail running retreats to suit all abilities each spring and autumn. With flexible 5 day or 7 day options, the retreat can suit your needs either as a long weekend away and running adventure or full 7 day training week.
Running guests stay in large 5* luxury villas, with two swimming pools, modern en suite rooms each with individual balconies and glorious sea views looking out over the beautiful Dalmatian coastline.
With spectacular smooth coastal trails straight from the door, runners are guided on runs by experienced coaches and elite athletes making for a great warm weather training camp pre summer or a great way to extend the summer sun in autumn.
There are coached sessions through your stay on hill running, trail specific technique advice and speed work in addition to the many social trail runs exploring the island’s sights. Runners take in the stunning island views of the entire Dalmatian coast as they run along the many coastal trails but also have the opportunity to visit many incredible historic and cultural places of interest on the way.
To ensure each runner gets the most out of their stay, guests will have individual time with their coaches to analyse their training, advise going forward and enhance their time on the island. There are talks on race preparation, nutrition, sports psychology, physiology and strength and conditioning as well.
The retreat is fully catered with a wide selection of nutritious food to suit all diets and ensure that runners are well fed on and off the trail, while relaxing in the Croatian sun.
With large balconies and outdoor space, guests can enjoy their downtime in between training, sunbathing by the pool, lounging on deckchairs, playing pool, table tennis as well as going hiking, mountain biking, using SUP’s and Kayaks in the sea nearby or just going for a splash in the warm clear waters. Doing as little or as much as like.
Head coach Gemma Carter, who is a 2:54 marathon runner, experienced international mountain and ultra runner, and who has represented England at 100km, says: “Having spent many years discovering the wondrous maze of beautiful trails that this island has to offer and its breath taking coastal paths, I knew it would make a perfect trail running camp location.
“Hosting these camps in spring and autumn is ideal meaning runners can use it as a great warm weather training week in the build up to key summer races or in the autumn to extend the summer sun, and combine with a relaxing holiday.
“We aim to ensure each and every guest feels welcome and has a great adventure exploring this beautiful place. I am so excited to show people these trails I love!”
