If you can already run 5km and would love to build up to 10 miles while enjoying spectacular off road running scenery, then don’t miss our popular beginners to 10 miles trails course. It will help to boost your running mojo, not to mention introduce you to new techniques and great new routes to run.

With qualified coach, Tara to help motivate and provide technique pointers, as well as the motivation of running with others, this course will make you fall in love with trail running and also get you ready for the BlueBell 10 mile run (which is also part of our challenge events so you could win points/rewards for taking part) if you decide to join us at this event.

You don’t have to enter but it’s a beauty of a race with carpets of bluebells through the woods where you run. A great achievement to crown your running course.

Join our #runloud campaign

Running. What does it mean to you?

Fresh air, escapism, a  renewned sense of vitality, peace, and/or feeling confident? Does it make you feel as though you are liberated from your daily grind, if only for a 30minutes or a few hours?

Running is a powerful force that can transform how you feel in all the time it takes to strap on a pair of running shoes and leave your front door. BUT for those of us who run, we also know that it hasn’t always felt this way.

When you first start running, it feels as if the whole world is looking at you. Running tights and compression top? No thanks. A baggy tshirt and a pair of over sized jogging bottoms is the apparel most of us started out in. And even then, it was under the cover of darkness, prarying that you wouldn’t bump into anyone you know.

But with running comes confidence, a time when wearing running tights and a breathable, sweat-wicking top suddenly makes sense. You no longer care what you look like, you are simply proud of what your body can achieve.

Now, we’re calling for YOU to join in this celebration of women’s running confidence with our #Runloud campaign. Forget black running tights, stand out, be counted in the loudest, most colourful leggings that you can get your hands on.

Run proud, stand out, and get noticed. By getting noticed you could help inspire another woman to take up running.

To help encourage you, we are also offering prizes to the best #runloud pictures, either posted to our Facebook page or tweeted to @fbbootcamp. Include the hashtag #runloud.

Our first prize to be voted on by May 10th is 50% off our Summer Body Blitz Camp. Ready to #runloud? See if your running tights can beat our current entrants.

Sweatshop concept

Launch night at Trump Street


If like us, you are more likely to be found lusting after running tights than 6 denier Wolford tights, and a Garmin Forerunner than a Cartier wrist watch, then you will love  Sweatshop’s new concept store at Trump Street in London.

It launched two weeks ago and it is the ultimate destination for all things running.

In addition to the shop floor, where you can lust after the latest in runner’s chic, you canalso have a go at training with The Altitude Centre,  improve your running technique with The Running School, or undergo some treatment with the Perfect Balance Clinic.

This is definitely worth a visit, although be wary. A visit could seriously damage your bank balance.
