The project: GORE-TEX® Experience Tour – European Trailrun Camp in the Dolomites 2011
GORE initiated just another great project as part of the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour: The European Trailrun Camp in the Dolomites 2011. Via facebook 20 applicants – enthusiastic trailrunners from all over Europe – were chosen to take part of this project/camp.
We were chosen and part of it – and had an incredible time (see our blog posts)!
Some project stories/fotos/…:
The base camp for the European Trailrun Camp is situated in the middle of the Dolomites at an altitude of 2,050 metres.
Starting from this base camp professional trail runners will show the applicants beautiful trails in an amazing setting. They can analyze their individual performance level, learn about trail running techniques and mental strength, try various GORE-TEX® trail running shoes and clothing and will get inspired by fascinating movies and photos presented by people who have actually completed these races.
From july 21st to july 24th the 20 lucky winners can expect to take part in an exciting trail running event involving all kinds of different activities:
- training runs with professional trail runners and qualified sports scientists.
- physical performance assessments conducted by an experienced sports medicine physician.
- wear trials of GORE-TEX® trail running garments and footwear.
- support and useful tips from physiotherapists and mental trainers.
- video and photo shows of significant trail running events presented by finishers and event organisers.
One of the most successful and well-known trailrunning athletes in the world will participate at the European Trailrun Camp: Lizzy Hawker from UK, 3 times champion of The North Face Ultratrail du Mont Blanc (UTMB).
