2013 Active at Altitude Running Camp

After an extremely successful first year of working together I am more than happy to announce that I will be joining Terry Chiplin again this spring to put on a camp at his Active at Altitude location in Estes Park, Colorado. Held from Sunday, May 19 to Friday, May 24 2013, this camp is open to runners of all abilities and combines not only physical training at high altitude but explores the mental aspect of running as well.

In my camp this past May, I had the great fortunate to spend time with a diverse group of people who were able to bring differing abilities and personalities to the camp. (Read more about this past year’s camp here.)

On top of the advice and training Terry and I brought to camp, we were also visited by other local running legends who added their own unique slants to the week.  In addition, we broke up the running with tons of good meals and lively discussion.  To keep things fresh, the campers even went rock-climbing where many overcame fear of heights and the unknown to challenge themselves in ever-differing ways.

In 2013, we plan to build on the success of this camp to put together an even more challenging and event-filled week. However, we will keep in place the aspects which have been proven to work for all campers: hard work, high altitude and positive attitudes.  Hard to beat the beautiful scenery in Estes Park and the easy runnable trails.

We have already confirmed as guest speakers are Patrick Rizzo. Patrick, who recently took 13th place at the 2012 US Men’s Olympic Marathon Trials, offers extremely poignant perspectives about the life of an elite runner in today’s world. I have had the pleasure of talking with Patrick extensively and look forward to having him be part of the camp.

I can't wait to have you there as well, helping us create an even better camp in 2013. The Active at Altitude brand that Terry has bene cultivating for years is one that is tried and true and I am excited to be back in Estes Park again in 2013.

Register in advance!
