Our Location - Suttle Lake offers access to some of the most spectacular trails and ecosystems the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Working with the Forest Service we've put together a week full of learning and running.

 

The Daily Schedule – Just getting runs on beautiful trails every day is the easy part and you could do that anywhere, anytime. We want you to get something out of this camp you can take home and put to good use in your own running, that’s why we’ll be teaching technical running form, downhill trail running, nutrition guidelines, trail building skills, how to put together a trail training plan, trail etiquette, and more. 

 

How To Prepare - We want you to enjoy your time at camp and one of the ways to do that is to come prepared. While this is a camp for all abilities, there are some strenuous activities that will test your limits no matter who you are. The stronger you come in, the more fun you'll have. 

 

What To Bring - Your packing list should include the basics without much fluff. In other words, you won't need the kitchen sink.

Safety

Your safety is our most important camp priority. With that in mind we'll create a safe environment for our campers from the time they meet us on the first day to when they leave camp. We will be in wilderness and remote settings but runs will be set up so that in case of sudden weather events we can reach shelter and relative safety as quickly as possible.  Our staff has Wilderness First Aid, CPR and other coaching certifications to be prepared in case of emergency.
