Join the Chi Running Costa Brava Adventure
Get away from it all and spend quality time focusing on improving your running tectnique and having fun! A unique opportunity to run stunning coastal and forest trails and enjoy the Catalan culture and cuisine of the Costa Brava. The Chi Running Costa Brava Adventure is organised by the Director of Chi Running UK, Gray Caws, in association with the formidable trail runner Pablo Rodriguez of www.runningcostabrava.com.
I can now officially conclude that this has been the best holiday of my life. And there are lots of factors that go into that… The location was breathtaking. Every peak, twist and turn of the Catalonian countryside left me gasping in awe. The skies so clear, the sun so warm, the seas so blue and the landscapes so vivid. And in running I really felt like I saw parts of this wonderful place that even the locals don’t know exist… After so many weeks and months of trying – I really feel like I have found my stride.
A challenging, enjoyable experience
You’ll be guided through the principles of Chi Running, learning energy-efficient breathing and running form in a series of short sessions before exploring the region during guided trail runs. In order to get the full benefits of this adventure, you should be comfortable with running seven miles and be prepared to walk/run for most of the day outdoors. Places are limited to ensure complete personal attention.
