2018-07-26 - 2018-07-29 2018 Wild Coyote Trail Camp

CAMP DETAILS

For 4 days and 3 nights, athletes will explore the amazing trails in the mountains with two professional runners as guides and an intimate group of motivated high school runners.  We are looking for 18 wild coyotes who love to run, are not afraid of a challenge, and are looking for an inspirational and educational opportunity to explore and learn how to stay healthy for a life-long running career.

Running

Each day will consist of one or two runs on the trails that meander into the forest.  The runs will vary in distance and terrain, but the one thing that stays consistent is the beautiful scenery. We welcome all levels of ability, and it is our goal to make sure that everyone has someone to run with. Campers should arrive to camp in reasonable shape, and be ready to run each day.

Eating Is Training

Training is so much more than running...we believe eating is training. The Wild Coyotes will be spending quality time in the kitchen getting hands-on experience with planning, preparing, and crafting nutritious and tasty meals. All of our meals are organic, and there will be vegan options as well.  Each camper will return home armed with the expertise to make the best decisions about what they eat to support the rigors of training.  By eating the right nutrients, in the right amounts, at the right time, we grow stronger, get faster, and learn how to endure more.

Lodging and Travel

Our Tahoe camp location is the Hutchinson Lodge, near Donner Summit.  There are two large loft areas, and here campers will need to bring a sleeping bag and pad, as the accommodations are a bit more rustic. Campers can be dropped off directly at camp, or we can provide transportation on Thursday and Sunday between camp and the Rockridge Bart Station in Oakland.

    SO fun, and a really incredible experience for me as a runner. I grew significantly performance-wise and in my knowledge of running as a whole. It was the right balance of intensity to create a great base and solidify my summer training, and was also super chill at times to have moments with the other campers and coaches to hangout and workout with. I learned a ton about what to do pre and post-run to make my training the most beneficial and injury-free as possible. Plus I have the necessary tools they gave me - like my stretching rope and roller that I never part with - to make sure I can properly do everything they taught us. I LOVED this camp, and would always recommend playing XC the board game. If you're a runner who loves the sport and the people, this camp is for you.

    I attended Wild Coyote last summer and had so much fun! Richie and Magda were wonderful coaches/leaders, and I learned a lot over the course of the week. I gained so much more than just training-- I learned new stretches, strength routines, and recipes for healthy meals. I can't recommend this camp enough to anybody who is serious about their running and would like to get stronger.
