About this Event

Cost: $75 Includes : Camp Fees, Food, Beverages for 2 Nights and 3 Days

Welcome to our inaugural trail running camp @ beautiful Devil's Lake State Park! Get out of the city grind and into nature with us. This weekend run retreat is geared towards experienced and aspiring trail runners alike. At the heart of the program we will be hosting daily runs accompanied by sunrise yoga as well as a spread of nutritious food for for the weekend and campfire discussions on nutrition and technique for running technical terrain and trails. Runs vary depending on participants’ skill level and training requirements, so all levels are encouraged to participate. Devil's lake is a quick 3 hour drive from Chicago and is home to some fantastic running/hiking and swimming and recreation.

We have reserved adjacent camp sites at Devils Lake State Park: Lower Ice Age Camp Ground which allows for run in-run out from sites to the bluffs and the ice age trail. This event is BYOT (Bring Your Own Tent). Don't have any camp gear? Feel free to reach out and we can help you in securing some for the weekend! We have some extra gear and have fellow runners and campers that are more than willing to pitch in!

Meals and Beverages will be included.
