This was our first ever warm weather training camp after just moving here 8 months previous. 12 athletes from Ireland ranging from 800 meters to marathon, living and training for 3 weeks based in the south of the island. We travelled all over the island to different training venues. This camp was the cornerstone to how we continue to evolve and develop what we are creating here in Gran Canaria. Trail runs, track sessions, cinder 1km sessions, strength & conditioning workshops, stretching & mobility workshops, nutrition workshops and top quality sports massage were the order of the days. With the beach less than 100m away, we rose every morning to stretch and prepare for the day ahead. Nutrition came in the form of the best Organic Gran Canarian food supplied by Carmen Gloria, our resident grower and supplier of all that is of the highest quality food from the island and abroad. Big thanks goes out to David Campbell and Feidhlim Kelly for getting this group out here. Paul, Daragh, Rob, Dáire, Kevin, Richie, Dermot, Conor and Fergal, thank you for been the initiators of our journey to develop these unique training camps here in Gran Canaria.
