Spartathlon Training Camp

I’m off to the Scottish Highlands on Friday for 3 days intensive off-road training in preparation for the off-road section of the Spartathlon.  When I ran the Spartathlon in 2005 I lost ‘hours’ on the off-road bit and want to put that right this year.  I’m inexperienced off-road and prefer road/track running.  I will be based in Fort William with Alan Young who has organised the Training Camp with runs to the Red Burn and Bridge of Steill, Kinlochleven to Altnafeadh and back and Glen Nevis to Kinlochleven.  I will also be doing some night ascents of the Devil’s Staircase.  Let’s hope the weather isn’t too bad.
