We will be staying at the San Diego KOA, which is just south of downtown San Diego.
Accommodations will consist of a variety of cabins ranging from deluxe to basic, depending on your budget.
These Deluxe cabins include a private bathroom, shower, TV, and fully furnished kitchen.
These log cabins are a great camping experience without needing to setup a tent.
Great for the Glamping get-a-way these Australian inspired eco-structures offer the excitement of a night under canvas, but all the comfort of home.
TRAVEL AND LOGISTICS
You should plan to fly into San Diego airport. It’s a large airport, so it should have numerous flight options from your location.
We will pick you up from the airport. We will group everyone into 2-3 groups depending on arrival time. Activities will start Thursday afternoon, so it is best to arrive sometime before 1pm.
We will drop you off at the airport on Sunday. We will try to run in San Diego Sunday morning, so an afternoon flight would work the best.
Am I fast enough to come to a running retreat? Will there be people my age? I'm worried I won't fit in...
These are questions we get a lot when we announce the retreat, so let me try to answer them for you. First, All speeds and experience levels are welcome.
As you know, we don’t care how fast or slow you are, we just want you to have fun and run well! I guarantee you will have someone to run with and make new friends the entire weekend. In 2017 we had everyone from a 5:30 marathoner to a 19 min 5k runner...and we had a blast!
Here's what some of our past attendees have said about their experience.
"The camp was so well organized and the balance of running and non-running activities was perfect. The trails were awesome and I got the do my first ever mountain hike/climb. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and convenient. I’ve told everyone that it was oddly strenuous, yet relaxing. I will definitely be coming to camp again.”
- Kara Schmidt
"Being with such amazing people that as dedicated to their sport as I am. Being able to relate and talk about training with knowledgable coaches and other athletes. I would put this up there as one of the neatest experiences I have ever had and will cherish the new "friends" I made. It was amazing and I already miss the free and easy banter that developed over those 4 days. For someone like me who lives in a very rural area where runners with this amount of dedication are rare, and for someone who rarely gets to travel, it was worth ever penny."
- Cynthis Morris
"Jeff's and the staff's expertise and their sincere desire to impart as much of that as possible to us over the long weekend made the camp, from a technical standpoint, well worth the investment of time and money. Amateur runners get excited about having a few tips and tricks from more talented runners. It should never be underestimated just how transformative it is to the everyday runner when a pro/elite shows genuine interest and gives his pupil some assignments to work on over the next year. And finally, the bonding between runners and with the staff, though we might seldom see one another in the future, not only forged new friendships among kindred souls, but also showed us that we are not alone in this often solitary sport. We're a team. "
