Just a few weeks until my annual spring Trail Run Camp! This is my 4th year that I’ve hosted a camp in the spring, and it just keeps getting better and better! And this year, I”m trying something new by hosting it at the Hockley Valley Resort. Not only will the trails be right at our doorstep, but the setting, accommodations, and food can’t be beat!

Intrigued in joining us? Still have some questions?  Read the FAQ below

 Is this camp for me?

Do you love trail running and exploring new trails? Would you like some ideas on what you can do differently with your training? Are you craving some “me time” and would love the chance to focus on yourself, your training and relaxing in between? If you’ve answered  yes, then this camp is for you!

Is it just for hard-core trail runners?

Nope! Although there’s a little bad-ass trail runner in all of us, it’s not a requirement! Participants will have different levels of experience and goals, and everyone is welcomed.  You get what you put into the weekend.

 Is this for both men and women? 

Yes! (My retreat in the fall usually involves women-only.)

Do I have to participate in all runs? 

No! This weekend is all about you, and what you need. You can choose to skip a run and go for a walk instead or simply stay back and chill. Or you can get in as much running as possible. With the exception of the run where we focus on technique, the routes are such that you can tailor the distance to your preference.

I’m not fast. Can I still come?

Of course! The runs are set up to accommodate different paces.

How much distance do we cover in the runs?

Run distances are customizable and are based on your pace and preference. Runs can be anywhere between 45min up to 2hrs+ at a leisure pace depending on your preference.

What do I need to bring?

Whatever you need for running-including trail run shoes, multiple change of clothes, drinks and foods while running. Be prepared for various weather conditions as we run in the heat and rain. All meals are provided however you are welcomed to bring some snacks. Bring your bathing suit to relax in the pool, hot tub or sauna!

When does it start and finish?

For those who can make it, there will be an optional run Friday mid afternoon; otherwise we start in the evening with dinner. We will be finishing Sunday after lunch.

Yes! I just need to know in advance please.
