Popular endurance athlete Susie Chan and top British female marathon runner Lily Partridge have teamed up to host The Campus Run Academy, a brand new running experience for runners of all levels at the luxury resort of Quinta do Lago in Portugal.
Taking place from 4th-7th October 2018, The Campus Run Academy aims to improve runners’ training knowledge within a unique sporting and relaxing lifestyle environment. Attendees will be able to experience the first-class facilities of Quinta do Lago on the coast of the Algarve, which includes a stunning new sports complex, THE CAMPUS. It is at this 45,000 sq. foot complex that The Campus Run Academy will be based for its exclusive training, performance, recovery, nutritional and educational workshops. The experience will also include guided runs along miles of beautiful, soft and hard-packed trails parallel to the spectacular Atlantic coastline.
Participants will have access to Susie and Lily’s experience and expertise over the course of the four days in order to take their running to the next level alongside an inspiring group of like-minded people.
Susie Chan is one of the UK’s top influential endurance runners. An expert endurance runner, Susie has broad experience in ultra marathons and trail running. With an impressive social media following, Susie has completed notable races including Marathon des Sables four times, numerous 100-mile races, the Ironman Triathlon as well as all the World Marathon Majors.
Lily Partridge is the UK’s top female marathon runner. A professional adidas athlete, Lily covered the marathon earlier this year in 02:29:24 to finish 8th overall at her first Virgin Money London Marathon. As a top elite, Lily is also multiple time British Champion, a GB International Athlete and Euro Team Medallist.
In addition to the tailored training schedule offered by Susie and Lily, participants of The Campus Run Academy will have full access to the Quinta do Lago resort, including its many restaurants, bars, cafes, private beach, pools, spa and more. Guests will stay in luxury private rooms at the beautiful 1950s style Magnolia Hotel for the duration of the camp.
Places are limited and are expected to fill quickly, so runners are encouraged to secure their spot for this superb autumn camp with two of the UK’s favourite runners.
Susie Chan commented, “Lily and I are incredibly excited to be hosting The Campus Run Academy in October as it offers a unique and highly motivational experience for runners of all abilities. It is a privilege to be able to be able to use the state-of-the-art performance environment of Quinta do Lago’s sports complex to deliver our interactive workshops – it really is the perfect setting to inspire, learn, socialise and relax. The rest of the resort’s facilities speak for themselves and it really will be an incredible place to focus on running and enjoy a stimulating social atmosphere for four days. We can’t wait to bring everyone together in October and to help each and every runner to achieve their goals, wherever they are on their running journey.”
