Email Summary **CAMP DATES TBD - EARLY JUNE $1650*

Join CTS Coach John Fitzgerald for five days of running around beautiful Lake Tahoe!

The purpose of this camp is to enjoy beautiful Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountains using the power of your own two feet, all above 6,200 ft! Throughout camp, you will have ample opportunity to improve your running skills through specific mountain ultra trail clinics and presentations. You’ll gain knowledge of the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) Endurance Runs course, and experience on the beautiful trails of the High Sierra. Whether you are new to ultra running or have multiple 50ks and 100’s under your belt, this will be a training experience you will never forget.

Enjoy five days and four nights in a private house near the shores of Lake Tahoe. Transportation to and from Reno Tahoe Airport is included as well as healthy food prepared by our staff. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts will be provided including sports nutrition from Bonk Breaker. We’ll have an open kitchen (we’re family) so make yourself at home. We want to make sure you’re well fueled for each day’s run!

Lake Tahoe is at 6,200ft in elevation and the surrounding mountains range from 9,000ft to 11,000ft. The trails are soft decomposed granite and hard packed dirt with large granite boulders to navigate. The TRT Endurance Run course is challenging with significant ascending and descending to challenge you. Each run will be in close proximity to the house and will be a mixture of point-to-point, out-and-back and looped runs. Go at your own pace and don’t worry about being left behind as each run is fully supported with two coaches and a cattle dog 🙂 There will be no aid stations en route except for Saturday & Sunday’s TRT training run where there will be two minimal aid stations. Although staff will carry extra water and calories, runners are expected to be self-supported and carry at least 70 fluid ounces.

We’re excited to have professional sports photographer, Myke Hermsmeyer with us capturing the moments. All runners will have access to the photo gallery at the end of camp.
