come experience the Northwoods
train. run. explore.
Dates will be August 11-14 2022. We will once again be staying at ROAM Adventure Base Camp in Seeley, WI. I am excited to run and share the miles of single track trails and glorious country roads!
Cost is $900, a non-refundable deposit of $150 is required as your deposit.
New for 2022: 10% of each registration will be donated to CAMBA.
All costs are covered for camp excluding getting yourself there. Yoga and strength sessions will be taught along with delicious food and coffee provided by Velo Cafe in Cable, WI. There is an opportunity to shop in the town of Hayward and we go out to dinner on Saturday night as a group outing.
Getting there: You can fly into Minneapolis or Madison, it is about an equal distance drive from either. Obviously there is an option to drive with ample parking once you arrive.
Spots are limited to 15 campers. Please keep in mind that this is a multi day camp, running 40-50 miles over 3.5 days. Two days of multiple runs. There is a mix of road running and trail running. This camp is NOT for beginners. It is going to be summer in the northwoods so the weather can be unpredictable. Think humidity, mosquitoes, rain accompanied by sunshine, warmth, and buttery trails.
Introducing our Yoga instructor for the weekend:
Victoria is a Madison-based Yoga teacher, specializing in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Her background as a competitive sprinter and hurdler inspired the development of a sequence of postures that helps athletes practice mindful training, prepare for racing, and prevent injury.
A strong and dedicated Yoga practice helps to support and enrich an active lifestyle, with the expressive and creative nature of our body’s full range of movement fully encouraged.
I knew Emily would be the right person to add to the “behind the scenes” of camp. She spends her summers camping and running. What a place to do both of those things surrounded by women who are like minded.
I asked her to be a part of camp with trepidation. Not that she would say no, but I didn’t want her to not do something she was looking forward to, not knowing what she was getting into.
From tablecloths, to flowers, and to using camping and camera equipment that was her grandmothers was so sweet and touching. She added a level of comfort and ease to the entire camp.
Introducing our Creative Writing Teacher for the weekend:
Jen. This is her day job.
She is a high school English teacher. Is that why I asked her to come to a running training camp and lead us all through some deep and hard writing? Well, yes. But also no. I asked her to be a part of it because she is good at what she does.
Having the summer off from her normal job, she spends a great deal of that time traveling. I knew her time would be precious but worth it. I think that going forward she will be a staple in the Team Bird Training Camp!
