Be Ultra Mini Camp: Smith Rock

Be Ultra Mini Camp: Smith Rock

Becoming Ultra and Sharman Ultra have joined forces once again. This time, for their first live event together. The internet is great but meeting with other runners to learn, socialize, and even compete together is the best!

The Be Ultra Mini Camp is a full weekend of activity and education from some of the most dedicated coaches in the industry. We planned the weekend around the featured Season 8 race of Becoming Ultra, the Smith Rock Ascent. Getting out on the trails at Smith Rock State Park north of Bend, Oregon and hanging out in the amazing town of Bend makes for a dream weekend for runners of all levels.

Before we get to the itinerary here are some things to know:

  • Runners of all ages and abilities are welcome as we have multiple coaches to serve you all.
  • We will have a partner hotel with discounted rates in Bend and be announcing it very soon so be sure to hold off on booking your room until then.
  • Discount code to participate in one of the Smith Rock races.
  • You don’t have to race on the weekend but it will be more fun! There is a 50k on Saturday and a 15 miler and 4 miler on Sunday.
  • We kept the costs down and will be capping the event to 50 runners.
  • Once you register we will send you an intake form to learn more about you and your running as well as a code for discounted race entries!
  • The cost for the camp is $150/person.


Friday May 15th   

9-11am at a trail TBD in Smith Rock State Park:  Coaches Ian Sharman, Ellie Greenwood (potentially based on race schedule), and Scott Jones of Sharman Ultra and Becoming Ultra will lead a trail skills session on some of the downhill sections of the course.  Expect 3-6 miles and to learn how to more efficiently navigate the more technical aspects of the course so you’ll have more confidence on race day!

Post run:  Pre race strategy talk and Q & A.  We’ll have a general mindset and strategy talk for 8-15 minutes followed by 15 minutes of questions for the group and then hang out for a bit for individual questions for the coaches (so we can answer more of the individual questions if needed).

Saturday May 16th

7am at Smith Rock: Coaches will be around all day to answer questions and to give general support.  They will be out on course helping and will have a dedicated area all day to answer questions pre and post race.

6pm at Crux Fermentation Project in Bend:  Post race social and coaches corner.  If something went wrong out on course today this is the time to find out what you could have done differently, or better from the coaches.  

Sunday May 17th

7am at Smith Rock:  Coaches will be there for the 15 miler and 4 miler to answer questions and give general support. They will also be putting runners through a light warm up since they are shorter distances!

Post race at Smith Rock: Coaches will be there to answer any and all post race questions and will do a send off to end the weekend!

Note: As with all runs, our route/itinerary is subject to change!
