Rob Krar Ultra Camp

Trails, Community & Friendship—experience it all at our trail and ultra running camps

My wife Christina and I hosted our first running camp during the summer of 2015 and our offerings continue to expand each year. We have been surprised and deeply affected by the connections we have made through inviting the trail and ultra running community to our home. In a small group that allows for generous individual attention, you’ll get to run alongside us in some of our favorite—and most beautiful—places to train. The goal of our camps is to provide an inspirational, educational and once-in-a-lifetime running experience unlike anything available in our sport.

Each of our camps offer guided trail runs over a variety of terrains, distances and altitudes. Camp is best experienced by runners who are healthy and in good fitness with at least some experience training for and competing in trail and ultra distance races. Participants should arrive fit, healthy and rested and be comfortable running for several hours at a time to be best prepared for the variety of terrain, temperatures, grades and altitudes that they will encounter. You do NOT need to be an advanced competitive runner to attend camp.

Our goal is to bring together the ultra running community to learn not only from us, but each other. Many of our friends—avid and experienced trail runners themselves—come out to guide and share their knowledge during the week. Attendees are encouraged to run at paces they find comfortable and choose distances each day that best suit their training, goals and comfort level.

Our overarching objective is to provide an informative and rewarding experience with a balance of running, education and time to connect with each other. We feel fortunate to have this time in our lives to share our home and knowledge with trail runners from around the globe. We welcome trail runners of all abilities. We've hosted folks from their early 20's to late 60's with a vast range of experience. We love bringing together a mix of experienced road runners, seasoned ultra ultra runners, those just discovering the magic of the trails, and everyone in between. Please note the camps are reserved for adults 21 years and older.

"“If you enjoy trail running then attending the Rob Krar Ultra Camp should be #1 on your bucket list. I cannot think of any running experience I have had over the last decade that comes close to the pure enjoyment and inspiration that I found at this year's RKUC.” "
