Desert Highlights Trail Running Camp

Join us for a long weekend in the colorful desert landscape of Western Colorado!

We’ve modeled this retreat after our popular high alpine fall retreat at Tumbling River ranch.

This time, we will be exploring trails through vast canyons, beneath towering monoliths, hidden arches and a sweeping landscape that goes on for miles.

Over 4 days and 3 nights join local trail and ultra running coaches as we guide you through special clinics and challenging runs.

The best part? Our base camp is located at the best resort in the heart of Colorado wine country!

The venue:

The Wine Country Inn is located in Palisade, Colorado and nestled among over 21 acres of working vineyards which produce world-class grapes

that are crushed and bottled as our own private label wine for our guests to enjoy. The Victorian- style inn is a short drive or bike ride from over twenty wineries and numerous vineyards, orchards, and farms.


With spectacular views, endless amenities and exceptional service this is THE place to stay when visiting and recreating in Western Colorado!

Thursday March 24th-Sunday March 27th. View the itinerary here.

Did someone say Wine?!?

After a long weekend we will un-“wine” with a 3-5 mile run stopping at various wineries and meaderies in the area for tastings and to soak in the laid back lifestyle of this small community. You will also have the opportunity to grab some fresh produce, honey and other items produced in the area by local farmers and ranchers.

Recovery sessions:

We will host a pi-yo class, have foam rollers and other massage/stretching devices available for use over the weekend and also take a trip for a dip (aka cold water therapy) in the Colorado river.
