Each year OUCCC organises a pre-season Training Camp in mid- or late September, a few weeks before the start of Michaelmas Term in order to get reacquainted with miles, hills and each other.
For sure one of the highlights of the OUCCC calendar, this year we will be going to Gibside Stables, in the Derwent Valley near Newcastle, between Thursday 13th and Tuesday 18th September (5 nights). Price will be between £60-£70 for the 5 nights, which is really good value, secure your spot by paying the £30 deposit. We have sole use of the venue, which sleeps up to 36, so it would be great to have as many people coming as possible.
FRESHERS ARE VERY WELCOME ON TRAINING CAMP! Whether you are new to the club, new to Oxford, new to running, or new (or old) to any combination of the three, you are actively encouraged to get involved. No need to pay the deposit until after Results Day. If you’d like to put your name down to come, please get in touch with Club Captain, Helene Greenwood, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alumni are also welcome, subject to space.
Training Camp Initial Details
Do not be put off by the word ‘training’ in the title! Attendees are in no way expected to take part in all of the runs some members will be doing, and are welcome to train as much or as little as they want. There is also a social element to training camp, and whether you are a new member or old, it is a great chance to get to know your clubmates better.
