Cedar Lake Running Camp

More than just a running camp, this two day/two night "running retreat" is an educational and inspirational experience designed to enhance your trail running whether you are a veteran or beginner.

As we run, eat, and live together, surrounded by the rugged rocks and single track of New England, you will be immersed in aspects of training that are essential to the enjoyment of lifelong running and competing:

  • Explore the mind/body connection critical to successful training and racing.
  • Enjoy breakout sessions in yoga, visualization, gear set up, and race day food preparation.
  • Learn nutrition best practices for pre-race, during, and post-race.
  • Experience day and night trail runs in the beautiful woods of Cockaponsett State Park right out the door of your lodge.
  • Practice technical running as well as uphill and downhill running technique.
  • Have fun with like-minded individuals and get inspired!

You will emerge a smarter, reinvigorated runner equipped with the tools you need to make you smarter, faster, and more resilient, ready to unleash your highest running potential.
