2019 Camps & Conferences
After our long studies at university resulting in us both achieving Masters degrees (sport physiology and physical & mental coaching) we traveled the world to meet people, discover cultures and to gain experience. Along the way we learned from the many mistakes that we made and now we are ready to share, teach, coach, and meet people who want to enjoy life. You are welcome to join our dream, our world, let’s go for the Raw Adventure !!!

During our trips for competitions, we organise Raw Adventure Camps. We will be in China, Costa Rica, France, and Spain. Camps range from a half day to one week. We would love you to join us! All we ask is for a small donation to our association Coureurs d’Aventure. Of course, if you can add a little extra we can use it to plant more trees on our beautiful planet, to help us with our vision to Green the Desert!
We are professional athletes travelling the world to compete. In addition to racing, we share our experiences and lifestyle through our conferences. We talk about performance, health, diet and ecology. We arrange these conferences around our race schedule (before or after a race). If you would like to reserve a place or book us to speak we would be very happy to hear from you!
Our Eco Center in Tenerife
For many years, we traveled around the world looking for a nice place to set up our base. Tenerife was intended to be just a holiday location for a fortnight but we spent one month and half there and decided to buy some land. During a long bike ride we imagined creating a training center which would also be our home on this island paradise. After many other training sessions, the seed grew and we were certain about our goal : to create the training center that we have dreamed of during our world trip : high quality facilities covering many sports, with perfect weather and good food !
The training center has evolved in the last few years. We started with a normal diet but it became increasingly vegetarian during our trips, because meat was difficult to store in our van. We discovered that we were in good shape after becoming vegetarian, so we started to learn more about alternative nutrition. This is how we eventually became vegan and since 2013 we have been raw food vegans, which for us is an amazing way to live.
We like to share our experiences as raw food vegans; it is an incredible source of health, that’s why we really want to give the opportunity to everybody to experience this diet in our center and with our advice to do it correctly. We would like also to share our experience in sustainable living. We are self-sufficient in energy with solar system (panels, batteries and a water heater). We recycle our water to water our permaculture garden. We use a dry toilet and have two composts (human and vegetable waste). We make our own products to clean the house and our clothes… There are so many easy ways to become eco-friendly at home !
Our center is based on sharing our lifestyle, our diet, our training tips, and our experiences…
Enjoying every moment !
You will share a part of our journey with us : wake up without an alarm, a raw breakfast, training in the morning, a raw lunch, training in the afternoon, a raw diner and dessert !
It is so simple but there is so much to experience …
Multi-sport is the way we love to train and we will show you why training is not boring. It is advantageous to practice various sports, even if you are a runner, doing other sports can help you to avoid injuries. You will discover that it is important to vary the level of intensity training, because it not beneficial to be racing full time or at a “tourist” pace all the time.
The gear we use always evolves, because we continue to look for alternative ways to train, and this make it more interesting ! This way we can also develop more skills, strengthen other muscles, avoid injuries and stay motivated to wake up and train !
We will explain to you why we came to our raw food vegan diet, the advantages and disadvantages, how to make it an easy part of your life, we’ll teach you various recipes…
The goal is to give you the opportunity to experience one week of raw food living.
The island of Tenerife is an amazing place to train with such varied landscape to enjoy : mountain, rain forest, desert, moon-like , coastal, canyon, Mediterranean forest, flat or tough ocean ….
Eco friendly living
We believe in nurturing nature, so we try to live in a way that protects the planet. We run on solar panel energy, including heating our water by solar energy. In the garden, we compost all fruit and vegetable peels and we use recycled water to water the plants. We have dry toilet. We developed a permaculture garden with fruit trees & vegetables. We are not yet zero-waste but this is our ultimate goal !
You will taste many tropical fruits and vegetables you haven’t seen before, learn how we built our permaculture garden, enjoy our vegetable production, and discover the specialties of the island.
