A Virtual 1-week Running Camp Built by Runners, for Runners

Week 1: Mountain/Ultra/Trail

July 6 - 12, 2020

Chaski will also have two additional weeks of camp later in the summer, one week focused on 5K to Marathon (July 20 - 26)   and one week built entirely by women, for women (August 3 - 9). Click the links above for info!

Overview

Camp Chaski is an online, virtual, week-long running camp built for the current limitations of 2020 by runners, for runners of all levels.

Over the course of this week, you'll learn from some of the most accomplished runners in the sport, partake in structured runs as well as pre- and post-run exercises and strength workouts.

In addition, you'll be able to learn from the pros (like Mike Wardian, Dani Moreno, and Pete Kostelnick) during live interactive afternoon Master Classes brought to you by Athletic Brewing Company

 

We'll cover topics like nutrition, training philosophy, mental toughness, and wrap things up with our Chaski Campfire - where our staff will share some of their favorite funny, inspiring, and/or challenging stories from their journey in the sport. 

While many companies would charge more for a single lecture, our entire week of camp (with 5 workouts and 6 master classes) is available for only $99. 

Register today and secure a spot for the week of a lifetime!
