fancy a training camp in Tiree?

£50 discount for jogscotland members- read on;

I particularly wanted to offer a discount to JogScotland groups for the Tiree Training Camp. We run a camp in Majorca which is nearly full but I'm really keen to develop the camp here on Tiree. I'm offering £50 off the camp fee and if there's a group of you that are interested in coming over we could look at including a free place. Here's some brief details:

Tiree Training Camp
  • 5 Days: 21st - 26th March 2013
  • Warm Tiree hospitality - accommodation, breakfast, lunch and evening meal provided as well as some evening entertainment
  • Plenty of quality all round fitness training and a full body shape up, as well as getting you ready to take on any events or challenges you've entered
  • Activities include jogging, mountain biking around the island, trail and beach running, functional strength training and some fun team challenges
  • All abilities catered for - we'll ensure it's very positive, encouraging and will build you up so you go home fired up and fighting fit!
  • Fully qualified coaches: including Personal Trainers, a pro-level triathlete and a Commonwealth Games cyclist

There's more details about everything we do at Tiree Fitness and the camps at

Tiree 10k and Half Marathon
  • 4th May 2013
  • 7th year of the 10k race and the first time we've included a half marathon option
  • Start line on the beach. Finish on the beach - Everything in between is on single track roads following the coast
  • Beautiful views out to sea and distant islands
  • Undulating course with twists and turns which is altogether a very enjoyable run
  • Local band Trail West play the evening dance to round off a spectacular day

Entries are open and more information can be found at

If you cant make it over to Tiree for these events but like the idea then please share this with your contacts or put a link to the website on social media. It would be great to offer future training opportunities like this and that depends on making this first Tiree camp really successful. Thank you for your help.

If you need any further details just give me a call or drop me an email.

Thanks and Happy Training!

the next tri-trail extravaganza-perhaps no blizzard & a wee bit shorter??

after the 22k fun in the blizzard-the next tri-trail 'fun run' is more accessible & possibly flatter but can't guarantee that !

The next Tri-Trail race will be our special night stage in Dalkeith Country Park. The race will take place on Wednesday 13th Feb at 7.30pm and will be a 10K incorporating a wide variety of different surfaces.

A good headlamp will be required but thanks to the generosity of our sponsors SILVA - your entry will include a voucher for £25 off a Trail Runner headlamp from The Tri Centre (
These retail at £60 so it's a great deal.

More details as soon as we have them - we hope to open entries next Thursday (24th) subject to relevant permissions - and will post a link to the Entry Central page then.

As usual we will provide free hot tea and cake at the finish.

 [never has a slab of cake vanished quite so quickly!]
