Training Camps

The Official UTA Training camps are run by our very enthusiastic and talented Squadrun coaches led by Kerry Suter and Ali Pottinger. Lucy Bartholomew will also be at Camp One.

These camps are suitable for all levels of runners and cater for all the different event - whether you are aiming for the UTA11, UTA22, UTA50 or UTA100. The camps are held at the KCC Conference Centre in Katoomba so you get direct access to the course routes.

    "How good was the UTA camp? Picture a person standing on their tippy-toes with hands reaching as high as they can into the sky. It was that good!

    The camp was great balance of running on the UTA course, instruction and tips, as well as time for socialising and getting to know other runners. The insight you get from Kerry and Ali on the whole UTA experience, not just the how's and why's of running and training were invaluable. I took away much more from the camp than I expected.

    In short, it was money and time well spent. I'd highly recommend it to anyone, no matter what UTA event you are running or how experienced you are." Paul Reynolds, UTA 2018 Camp attendee.

    "I attended UTA camp 1 and 2 and had serious fomo about not being able to get to camp 3! I was extremely apprehensive about going to camp 1 and very nearly backed out but I’m so glad I stuck with it. The weekends have been fantastic. The training and information was invaluable and all delivered with joy and professionalism.

    I am new to trail running but I was made to feel part of the running community with Squadrun and UTA and this had a huge impact of the enjoyment I have gained in my training. Kerry and Ali are the absolute perfect team to hold the weekends, their knowledge is incredible you can tell how proud they are to do what they do. So thank you for these weekends, I wouldn’t have the confidence to do the UTA 100 without them. 🙏🏻

    Thanks again for making these spectacular races and camps available.

    Can’t wait for May now!!" Jenny Phillipson UTA 2019 camp attendee
