Isle of Eigg Trail Running Camp

New for 2018!

The first ever Ladies Trail Running Retreat on Eigg, hosted by Eigg Adventures! Spend four days with us on the stunning Isle of Eigg in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, exploring the lesser known trails and meeting like minded people.

The retreat will run from Thursday 26th April to Sunday 29th April 2018, and will include the following:

Three nights bunk room accommodation in the Glebe Barn Hostel
Three meals per day
Three guided runs
Use of bikes and kayaks
Fitness and stretching sessions
Guided walk, learning about the nature and history of Eigg

Accommodation is at the Glebe Barn Hostel, one of Scotland’s most beautifully located independent hostels. With a wood burning stove and glorious views over the ocean, you’ll be cosy and comfortable for your time on Eigg.

Meals will be cooked on site to perfection by Eiggy Bread, the island’s caterers. Dietary requirements can be taken into consideration, and we’ll make sure you’re eating all the right things to keep you full of energy for your weekend of running.

You’ll enjoy three guided trail runs during your time here. We’ll have between two and three separate groups to cater for all abilities, so please don’t worry if you think you’re a slow trail runner and may not be able to keep up! Our philosophy on trail running is to enjoy the stunning island landscape rather than aiming for speedy times so we plan to spend a lot of time enjoying the views, taking pictures and just generally having fun.

The afternoons will be free for you to relax in the Glebe Barn in front of the wood burning stove or in the sun room, or you can take advantage of the fitness and stretching sessions on offer. In addition, we’re providing kayaks (weather dependent) and bikes so you can visit the local seal colony in Kildonan Bay, or take a ride down to Galmisdale Bay Tearoom for a pint of locally brewed Eigg beer.

On Sunday, once packed and ready to vacate the hostel, we’ve arranged a guided walk for you to make the most of your time on Eigg before leaving on the afternoon ferry back to Mallaig. You’ll learn all about the fascinating history of Eigg and perhaps spot the Golden Eagles, if you’re lucky!

It promises to be a wonderful weekend of adventure, exploring and relaxing, and we can’t wait to have you join us on the west coast of Scotland for this fantastic trail running retreat.

The total cost for the retreat is £375, covering everything mentioned above. To reserve your place please click here to contact us or find us on social media @EiggAdventures.
