Arrive late morning and head to our cabin where introductions and lunch await on the expansive deck. After eating, we’ll unpack, get settled and eventually head out for a relaxed afternoon run on a stunning stretch of the famed Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). We’ll keep it short today, giving everyone a chance to ease into the altitude and mountain terrain. Then, back home for showers, a big dinner and drinks.
Running: up to 5 miles, single track trail Meals: Lunch and dinner (LD) included
DAY 2: DONNER RUN
Wake up to coffee and a relaxed breakfast before heading out for a mid-morning trail run with a bit of everything: forest, wildflowers, sweeping views & even a pristine alpine lake! Afterward you can relax with a picnic and swimming at historic Donner Lake. Later, we’ll head back to the cabin for another delicious dinner and a chance to prepare for tomorrow’s big run!
Running: Up to 7 miles, single track trail Meals: BLD included
DAY 3: LONG RUN DAY
We will wake up early to coffee, a light breakfast and sunrise before heading to Lake Tahoe for a point-to-point long run on a world-famous trail with views that you won't believe! Take. Your. Time. After finishing what very well may be the most beautiful long run of your life, indulge in a hearty sandwich and a beverage from the cafe at the finish line. Once everyone is done we’ll relax and recover on a pristine, hidden beach just down the road. That evening we’ll indulge in a big dinner, drinks, dessert, stories and a good night of sleep.
Running: 14 miles, single track trail. Though the run can be shortened, for the best experience everyone is encouraged to prepare for the full distance. Meals: BLD included
DAY 4: RECOVERY DAY
Yesterday might have been the most beautiful run of your life, but there's fairly good chance that today will be even better! This point-to-point trail takes you along the crystal clear shores of South Lake Tahoe, with a photo opp at every turn. Finish at a shady cove where you will be picked up by boat. A picnic and drinks await on board. Spend the afternoon swimming and relaxing while getting a tour of some of Lake Tahoe's most spectacular cliff lined shores and beaches. That evening, kick back for one last dinner and one last dramatic Tahoe sunset.
Running: 3-7 miles, single track trail Meals: BLD included
DAY 5: LAST BUT NOT LEAST
Today's run is optional, but you won't want to miss it! We've got a history lesson and a unique morning recovery run (or walk, if you prefer) near Donner Pass in store for you. A final big brunch will be prepared as everyone packs up, and after eating we will head to the airport for departures.
Running: Up to 5 miles, dirt/gravel road Meals: B included
