Great Ethiopia Run Camp – 24th to 27th November, 2017




Join Trisutto at Africa’s Biggest Road Race – The Great Ethiopian Run

Boost your performance and fitness with high altitude training in Ethiopia.

Join and specialist run coach, Harald Fritz for individual swim, ride and run coaching in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Meet Haile Gebrselassie personally and get awesome pictures with him.

During the camp you will train alongside professional and age group athletes, receive advice during workouts on your swim, bike and run technique, with opportunities to ask questions throughout.

Workouts are individually designed due to the High altitude. Normally there is a morning run (7:00) before breakfast, and a afternoon session (run, swim, gym,..)

The climate in our training facility in Ethiopia is perfect for endurance training. Expected weather is 16° Celsius (morning/evening), 24° Celcius mid-day

This is not only the perfect chance to see and feel for yourself how High Altitude Training feels like, it is also the chance to take part in the biggest African Road race (10K), the “Great Ethiopian Run”. Together with 40,000 other runners you will experience a unique running festival. No Starting Numbers, no time, just the same T-Shirt for everybody. If you can run 10K you will manage this run even though it is a little bit hilly and at 2.500m of elevation. Also meet the great Haile Gebrselassie at the race venue.


Our individual assistance starts before the camp in discussing with you your personal goals, your actual level of fitness and training volume to tailor your training. Especially at high altitude everybody reacts differently and there is a high chance that people want to train too much, too fast and by doing that will do more harm than gaining benefits. That is why we will adjust your training on a daily basis!
