Point Reyes Trail Running Camp
Event on 2016-10-26 14:00:00
DATES: October 26 - October 30 Description With over 150 miles of trails to explore in Point Reyes National Seashore, you’ll experience so much more at this trail running camp. Enjoy the camaraderie of other runners while spending a week running on wind swept beaches, hiking to cliffs overlooking crashing ocean waves, careening through deep misty pine and red wood forests, and ascending mountainous inclines leading to epic views. Use your senses to breathe in the salty air next to a campfire on the beach at night. Indulge your taste buds with family style meals made in our kitchen from local fare. Embrace the local culture of the food and farm heritage with our included custom-built food and farm tour. Run wild with native elk herds on sweeping ocean cliffs. We will not be in a hurry when out on runs. Much of this running will be slow and leisurely up hillsides and along cliffs with built-in talks and teaching sessions. The primary focus of this camp is to explore the freedom that running in such a beautiful destination brings while developing skill sets to make you a better and more efficient runner.

ADVENTURE LEVEL / WHO SHOULD ATTEND Beginner / Intermediate - While this camp is geared towards beginner to intermediate runners, anyone that has a love for adventure and trail running would benefit from attending this event. Attendees should be able to run between 5 -10 miles a day on various grades. Most trails will be on single track with good, but dynamic footing and on the beach. Runners will have many opportunities to engage in informal discussions related to trail/mountain running. HOW FAR ARE THE RUNS Mileage may be combined into only one run per day or be broken up into two depending on the dynamics of the camp. Attendees will have the option of taking days off, or reducing mileage on runs. Those so inclined will also have the option to push themselves at a faster pace at some point during runs; however, this certainly will not be the focus of any run. GROUP SIZE AND GUIDES Participation is limited to 15 athletes so that individualized attention can be given to those attending and coaches/mentors remain easily accessible. There will be two coaches out on every run, so if any of the participants want to go shorter (or longer) then they will have the option without being left on their own. TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS You'll need to arrive at Oakland Airport by 2:00 pm on the first day and depart no earlier than 2:00 pm on the final day. Suggestions and guidance will be provided once the group is set!
