On behalf of the Mokihinui-Lyell Backcountry Trust, SQUADRUN proudly present the Old Ghost Road Training Camp 10-13 December 2021
A 4-day, 3-night tour of the 85km Old Ghost Road. Run the trail over two days staying at the ‘halfway point’, Stern Valley Hut.
This trip is strictly limited to 12 people. You will be accompanied throughout by Coaches Kerry and Ali, with special guest star (and meta-human) Phil Rossiter stopping for a chat at some stage.
Unlimited access to coaches means you can get advice and support on everything from nutrition to pole use.
This isn’t just for athletes attending the Old Ghost Ultramarathon! We appreciate that the pressure of race day and cut-offs aren’t for everyone so this training camp is about accessibility for anyone who perhaps doesn’t want to ‘race’ 85km. We will ensure that no matter what your speed you will not be left behind!
