What is the purpose of running camps?

  • Camp before a competition allowы you to acclimatize in the mid-high mountains – 1000-2000 m. Many trail tracks are located at these altitude, and the inhabitants of the plains find out at these altitudes that even gentle uphill running becomes an unbearable load.
  • During the trainings in the camp you will be able to define the level of workload necessary to accomplish the track successfully. You will improve the technique of ascent and descent on technically difficult sections of the course.
  • You will gain experience of passing the key segments of the competition – after all, it is easier to run in a race in familiar places.
