Training Running Journey – A New Life Experience
Trail running is a type of activity that offers a person a connection with nature. When we run, we are receptive to discovering new places. We travel there and run organized.
It provides an opportunity for an authentic experience of nature, away from urban and health-friendly environments. The runner is inspired by the trail running space, which is almost unlimited, just like the mighty nature. Running on trails, which often involves fast walking, guides the runner through varied terrain, and that is what usually excites the runner. It is a personal running challenge and at the same time an experience that can be different with every meter – a completely different view awaits you around the next bend; a gentle descent to the sea awaits you; crystal clear water from a stream along the way surprises you.
Experience new places, people …
Running on trails and exploring new places is now one of the most enjoyable forms of vacation. If you are a passionate runner, it allows you to do exactly what you love and at the same time experience new places, people, and customs. You go on vacation and run there. You can even prepare for specific running challenges. During running vacations, you take care of personal readiness. When running, you socialize with other runners, exchange experiences, advice, and perhaps even find the love of your life. You can run for several consecutive days, cover longer distances, and connect two places into one story of all the beauty. You can run with a guide, with a running expert.
Fastpacking – Combination of trail running and ultralight backpacking
Important for trail running is that the runner has everything necessary, the most essential things and equipment for running. But an unwritten rule is that the runner should run without unnecessary “baggage” so that weight minimally hinders the run. Running on trails should be relaxed; the runner should complete the chosen distance with less effort, run more easily, and walk more relaxed. This is where fastpacking comes in, an activity where you run wherever you can and walk where it’s more challenging due to steepness, terrain, distance, openness of the terrain, fatigue. Fastpacking is essentially a “light and easy” way of covering distance. It is a combination of trail running and ultralight backpacking, creating a true experience. To achieve the goal – connecting multiple “support” points into a total distance – less time and effort are needed than with additional weight and equipment.
“Running on trails should be relaxed; the runner should complete the chosen distance with less effort, run more easily, and walk more relaxed. “
Quality support for comfortably run
For such running challenges, where connecting the route, for example, hut-to-hut trail running, other support is crucial for success – an organization that accompanies the runner. Support on the route; with food, means for regeneration, as well as with equipment and the possibility of basic hygiene. Such support requires a precise process, a list of all necessary actions for quality support of runners and ultimate success. Even when it comes to running vacations, consisting of fastpacking from point to point, attention to the organization of accompanying activities is needed; transportation, food, accommodation, regeneration, help with spatial orientation, navigation, instructions, … Even at a running camp, where we have, for example, one accommodation base, good organization of all necessary accompanying activities is needed, allowing the runner to run and experience the most good things comfortably.

Runners seek new running experiences
To a true runner, running means a lot; it’s a way of life. They run regularly at home, go running to various destinations, usually participate in running gatherings and competitions. Often runners set personal goals that they achieve with regular training and a carefully prepared program. Most runners are also explorers who crave experiences. They seek new running experiences without excessive suffering to achieve their goals.
Everything for success and satisfaction
For runners, we offer organized running vacations, high-altitude trail running in the form of hut-to-hut experiences, running journeys where every day we connect a new location with running that inspires and offers special feelings. We take care of professional running preparations in the form of performance camps and conduct teaching of running technique and basic mountaineering for involvement in the skyrunning industry. Our main concern is that the runner runs relaxed and safely and can expect full support – care before, during, and after running. Running is an exceptional activity that takes place in diverse environments, where nothing should be left to chance for success and satisfaction.
