Level I – this camp is for you if you can already run a 10K distance at 10 min/mile pace or faster (at your home elevation)

Level II – this camp is a more advanced level, running longer and at higher elevations – this camp is for you if you can already half marathon distance at 10 min/mile pace or faster (at your home elevation).

Each camp contains a blend of activities specifically designed to raise your conditioning level, particularly focused on running. Camps are residential at Keno’s Llama Ranch, close to Mary’s Lake, at 8,000 feet in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado. Mary’s Lake was a summer camp location back in the 1800′s for Arapaho – the area was also visited by Apache and Ute tribes. Each day of the camp is creatively designed to challenge and inspire, primarily running on roads & trails in and around Estes Park. Elite level athletes have been benefiting from the effects of altitude training for years – now you can too! Come and find out why athletes that come and train with us return home with renewed enthusiasm, motivation, and knowledge, and set PR’s! See information on the benefits of training at altitude here.
