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. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When in ROAM, adventure greets you at the door.  You’ll have direct access to over 1.5 million acres of county and national forest.  If you love outdoor warm-weather activities like mountain biking, trail running or hiking, the unmatched variety of trails within Sawyer and Bayfield County Forests and the Chequamegon National Forest are don’t-miss experiences.  Winter activities include over 50 miles of groomed FAT bike/snowshoe trails, and nordic skiing directly from your cabin to the Birkie Trail’s 90k of cross country skiing heaven on snow.  Depart from daily life and find your inspiration.

Introducing our Yoga instructor for the weekend:

Victoria Andrews
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.

Introducing Emily!

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.

Meet Jen

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. 

She is also a runner. You may recognize her face from our February challenge and Mohican.

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!

Team Bird Training Camp has really evolved into something pretty special. This was my fourth time attending and every year has been better than the last. This year I was attending as Nora's support crew/photographer and I have loved witnessing all her athletes experience for themselves what a fantastic experience this camp is.

"

Attending Bird Camp has been one of the best experiences I have had as an adult. Being around like-minded people in the Northwoods grounded me, filled my cup back up, and helped show me sides of my personality I didn't know existed. Because it is so much more than a running camp.

Training camp is a fabulous experience to recharge your running game with supportive, fun, like-minded runners. Nora brings a holistic perspective that will challenge you to reach your potential. I'll be back for more!

I went to camp looking to try out trail running and meet some new friends. It was a huge confidence boost to be able to tackle the long trail run and to be able to push myself the entire way. I came away with a new desire for trail running and the confidence that I can go a lot faster than my current running paces are indicating, plus I met some amazing people that I’ve stayed in touch with.
