Misfit Mountain Athletics is excited to offer a Fall Running Camp in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina!

Enjoy a weekend of guided trail running, education and group activities in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of western North Carolina. This is a laid-back, rustic, inclusive "mini retreat" where you can build community, learn new things and push through comfort zones.

What is a trail running camp?

Think of a group camp, but for adults who run trails! Enjoy 3 days of guided trail runs, group education on topics such as nutrition, trail safety, training and injury prevention. This is an informal, low-key running retreat for those looking to build community and learn from an experienced running coach. The goal is to have a great time with great people on great trails!
Distances will range from 6-15 miles depending on group goals. We will split into two different guided groups if needed for the day. These will be no-drop runs! Newer runners are welcome, but ideally each runner should have some trail running experience before attending. If you are unsure if this camp would be a good fit for you, please send us an email! We want everyone to feel safe, comfortable and welcome. Please note this is a co-ed camp.

What is provided?

Four nights of lodging in a group cabin setting (please note you will have your own bed but will be sharing rooms with one other person,) 3 meals per day, fully guided runs and group educational activities. Guests will check in Thursday evening. Runs will take place rain or shine on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Monday guests will check out and head home.

How long will the trail runs be and at what pace?

We anticipate runs to be anywhere in the 5-12 mile range. We will have at least two running guides and there will be absolutely NO runner left behind! The pace will be a slow, easy effort mixed with lots of breaks and power-hiking (these are some big mountains!) If needed, we can split the group into two different guided-runs of different pacing/lengths.
