 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is this for me?

If you want to treat yourself to an amazing weekend, have some experience trail running and want to 1) learn more; 2) meet others; 3) identify ways to get better; and 4) get some miles in and 5) discover some great trails—then yes, this is for you!

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 do something else. 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; I will do my best to pair you up with others of similar paces. What’s more important is that you have experience trail running and are interested in learning more about yourself and how to challenge yourself a bit more.  You might be surprised with what you are capable of!

How much distance do we cover in the runs?

Run distances are customizable and are based on your pace and preference; the various runs will vary between 45min-3h+.  You can expect to run on roots, rocks, downed trees, bridges and plenty of ups and downs!

What are the accommodations like?

It doesn’t get much better than the Hockley Valley Resort! Nestled in the middle of Hockley Valley with the Bruce Trail right at our fingertips, this boutique luxury Resort offers first class hospitality and amazing culinary. Promoting optimal recovery in between runs has never been easier!

Accommodations are shared with another person and I will pair you up with another person if you are coming solo. Private accommodations may be available for an additional fee (space permitted); contact me if interested

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. Don’t forget your bathing suit if you plan on recovering in the pool or hot tub!

Is it refundable?

Unfortunately payment is non-refundable unless we can find someone to take you place (e.g. if there is a wait list); a $50 admin fee will be applied.
