TRAIL RUNNING CAMPS
A unique camp experience designed to further ignite your passion for trail running, while bringing a complete awareness and comfort to your time in the wilderness. Trail running, forest stewardship, nutrition, trail maintenance, trail etiquette, map reading and navigation skills will be taught, providing the foundation for this impactful, awe inspiring week. Come join us and see for yourself..
The camp is to help foster a level of comfort and independence while running trails in remote areas through education in map reading and navigation and to provide a level of understanding about forest issues and trail maintenance through hands on work.
Our over-arching goal is to create capable trail runners and stewards with a lifelong love of nature.

Max explains his mission for the camp, why he decided to put it together, and why you should come.
Imagine a remote and rustic cabin high in the mountains on a mountain lake as your base of operations with hundreds of seamless miles of trails leaving right from your back door. We choose each location with a purpose in mind; areas of extreme beauty, miles of singletrack trails, and meccas of endurance trail running. Everyday a new running adventure with spectacular views of ridges, snow capped peaks, and crystal clear mountain streams awaits. In the evening, after a healthy and fulfilling home-cooked meal you're roasting s'mores with 15 of your closest friends over an open fire while the fire crackles and you rest your weary legs. This is the camp you've been waiting for. An authentic experience that you won't find anywhere else.
We've hand picked some of the best teachers, forest rangers, and chefs to deliver a camp experience not only to get you running some amazing trails but learn how to be prepared out in the wilderness and why we're so fortunate to have such amazing trails for you to enjoy.
You may hear advice from renowned strength coaches, wildlife biologists, world champions, inspiring writers, wilderness first responders, and yoga gurus, all within a week.
