Brilliant, superb, awesome, that about sums up this trip. If you are up for an adventure and don't want the hassle of finding accommodation or great food, and of course superb trails, then this is the trip for you. Brendan and his awesome team will take care of all this for you. I was blown away by the scenery of Chamonix and more importantly, went to places that I would not have had the confidence to go to by myself without the Up\P Coaching team preparing all this for me. Superb trip, highly recommends it.

This tour was extremely well planned and managed by all. Once there everything was taken care of for us and the accommodation was stunning, conveniently located and very comfortable. Food catered for everyone’s dietary needs and was really tasty, plus there was never a shortage for breakfast, lunch & dinner on hungry runners tummy’s. 
The running itself was truely such an exceptional experience. Being able to run in these stunning locations, with coaches of such a high caliber is a experience very few get to enjoy. All runner abilities where catered for, so no one was left behind. I would 100% encourage others to take part in this experience, as I certainly hope to again.

I had the pleasure of attending the inaugural France Up & About Chamonix tour in July 2018!

The tour was very well organised and the cost included accommodation, catering, travel & daily guided scenic running / hiking adventures.
The accommodation was a beautiful chalet which was spacious and very comfortable and included a hot tub & Spa and only a 5 minute walk to the little village of Chamonix.  
The catering was brilliant, the food was just amazing catering for many different dietary requirements and there were always leftovers which definitely did not go to waste.
There was a perfect mix of daily running, time to relax & unwind, shop or sightsee and I would highly recommend to anyone wanting an adventure without all the hassle involved in planning etc. 
Well done UP Coaching tour team

Five commonly asked questions that have come through 🙂

Q: Do I have to be a part of Up Coaching to come along?
A: Absolutely not and we welcome athletes from all over. We run these tours under Up & About Running which is a separate entity. Our tour party last year was made up of both current Up Coaching athletes and those from the wider running community.

Q: Do I have to be a fast runner to participate in the tour?
A: Definitely not! Our tours are just that, more ‘tours with running’ than ‘training camp’. We welcome any runner with a reasonable level of fitness and sense of adventure and fun. We will group you with similar runners and with your own coach so you get the most out of your time in the mountains.

Q: Is there a race at the start/end of the tour that I can do?
A: There sure is! We have timed the tour so you get to to have the option of staying around in Chamonix for the Mont-Blanc Marathon events (VK, 23km, 42km, 90km options) which start 5-7 days (according to the race chosen) after the tour.

Q: Will there be free time for sightseeing included?
A: Absolutely! Our runs tend to be all in the morning and we encourage all guests to use their afternoons for sightseeing, taking in Chamonix or other recreational activities around town such as paragliding, mountain biking, shopping etc.

Q: Are meals included?
A: All breakfasts and dinners are included and meals have a French flavour. Meals are cooked by chefs in the chalet and we also include an ‘eating out’ experience in a restaurant in Chamonix. Because we’re of course in France, wine is also included with all dinners.
