Don’t let the title scare you; CUH&H training camps are a really fun experience for everyone. It’s actually more of a holiday where some people will train hard and some will use it as a chance to unwind, but everyone has a great time! No one is forced to do any running if they don’t want to!
We organise two training camps per year: one in September and one at the beginning of January, both in a variety of locations across the UK. You are welcome to stay for as much or little of the week as you like.
The next training camp will be in the town of Pitlochry in the middle of September. Incoming freshers with an offer from Cambridge are encouraged to come, as it is a very relaxed way to meet some of the people you’ll be around for the next year. Last year we had seven freshers come along and enjoy themselves!

You can also expect lots of banter and fun and games. There will be some drinking, but again there is no pressure and you will certainly not be the only one if you don’t want to drink.
CUH&H training camps are, without fail, simply amazing and unmissable.
Below are a few of the reasons people often conceive for not going. As you will see there is no need to worry about any of them…
During the training camp in Malham in September 2003, Darren Talbot initiated the challenge of accumulating 100 points over the course of the camp – one point being awarded for each mile run and each pint drunk. Since then, a tally has been kept on each camp. The entries below are in recognition of those Hareys who have successfully completed the challenge.
