Technical Running Camp
Looking to make gains in your technical, off-trail skills?
Seeking the knowledge base to do this safely?
Wanting to pursue Skyrunning?
Join professional mountain runners Cody Lind of SCOTT International and Brittany Peterson of Nike trail at a running camp specifically designed to target skills to improve technical off-trail running. Join us and learn skills targeting navigation of technical terrain, the planning aspects, safety considerations and foundational skill-building in order to help you go tackle your own backyard mountains!
This camp is limited to 10 spots only in order to truly provide an environment conducive to maximizing gains in technical off-trail running. This will be on a first come, first served basis with a waitlist for pending participants. However, we retain the right to recommend deferral on entry into this running camp if we feel you are not a right fit at this time (i.e. no trail experience, no ultra experience, etc.). Once you register, you will be added to the list and await acceptance into this camp upon review. We may contact you for a basic running resume for additional clarification. We are hoping to expand our camp services in the future to include Beginning Trail Running and Beginning Off Trail aspects in order to include these up and coming ultra runners!
*Camp spaces are limited to 10 attendees and are reserved for people of 21 years of age or older*
*Camp designed for intermediate to advanced trail runners, See Schedule for further training details.*
