Iain and Su are both accomplished multi-sports athletes who are eager to share their experiences and training ground with others. We have awesome trails on the property and into local areas to ride or run, fresh clean air to breath and hills to make your legs and lungs burn!

We are able to provide a venue and support services for your own training camp or tailor make one to your specifications. Camps can range from affordable (with guests providing their own tents and self-catering) to the luxurious – where we take care of everything.

Mountain Splendour is able to cater for non-training family members and offer a programme to keep the kids busy and happy while the parents are off training. This means that mums and dads get the chance to train together or one parent gets to do some serious training “guilt free” knowing that their family is having just as much fun as they are!

So if you belong to a sports team or club, are between the age of 9 and ninety then Mountain Splendour Eco-Resort is the place for you to come and train.

 

Previous camps

Comrades runner Prodigal Khumalo headed to Mountain Splendour along with Eric Ngubane to spend 3 weeks training ahead of the 2015 Comrades Marathon.  Iain took them out on all his favourite trails and when they decided they had to do a long road run Iain (not a fan of tar) seconded them to Bergville and back.At the end of the 3 weeks Gunda, Rosie and Snowy were sad to see their new training partners leave!

In December 2013 Mountain Splendour hosted Coach Russ White and a group of his athletes for a base training camp. Apart from long rides into the neighbouring tribal areas led by Mountain Splendour’s development athlete Sanele. In addition to riding their bikes the athletes tubed down the river and hiked up into the mountains.

Eight excited 7 year olds descended on Mountain Splendour for a tennis and cricket camp at the beginning of December. When the sun shone they played tennis and when the courts were wet the had cricket coaching.  The boys loved the camping experience and the combination of a midnight feast and a 5am wake-up left their coach looking for a Red Bull by lunch time of day two!

Elite trail running Landie Greyling headed to Mountain Splendour to do some high altitude training ahead of the world ultra trail running champs in Wales in 2013.  Su and Landie had an awesome 5 days of running the mountains and trails around the resort.
