Running and writing retreats on dartmoor with Adharanand Finn | Next retreat: 17th - 20th May 2019

Testimonials from our previous camps...

November 2017

"Absolute highlight was the pre-dawn climb up a trail of diamonds from frost glistening in head torches, a totally epic view across the moors as the sky turned pinks and oranges, and then watching from the top of Rippon Tor as the first rays of the sun came over the horizon. Worth the cold, early start, life affirming and I'm hanging onto the memory. Leaving to return to reality was the worst bit."

"The location was fantastic, adjacent to the open moor but not too remote or hard to find. The house had a lot of character but was also comfortable and well-equipped."

"The food was very good. I loved the Kenyan food but the other meals were delicious too."

"Great routes, beautiful. Pace and distance good for me - I was really happy to be in the middle of the group, so I didn't feel stressed about being able to keep up or about not being challenged enough."

March 2017

"The weekend was one big highlight for me. My least favourite part was leaving!"

"I had been so nervous beforehand, wondering what I had let myself in for but every hour brought something new and unexpected" 

"Great to talk and run with Joe. After the camp I saw an AiM practitioner and I now do the moves daily. It has fixed my back problem" 

May 2016

"I loved the cosy kitchen where everyone gathered for tea/coffee and a natter." 

"Pace was about right with the speedsters and tortoises catered for. Guides very inclusive and made sure no man/woman was left behind." 

"[Joe's core session] got everyone involved in a fun way, which was a nice surprise as we all expected a torture session of planks and crunches." 

"The food was fantastic, maybe too good ;-)"
