Colorado Trail Tour Special!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, one of our runners on the Colorado Trail tour cannot participate.  Fortunately for you, this presents an exciting opportunity to jump on board and run the spectacular Colorado Trail with Adventure Running Co!
We presently have a couple of openings on this tour and will be offering runners looking for a week of sublime trail running through meadows filled with wildflowers, over high mountain passes and on some smooth, sweet singletrack 25% off our regular tour price until August 2.  This tour might also be a great opportunity for someone training for the Leadville Trail 100 to get in a little acclimation and some easy high altitude running before the race on August 21.
The tour dates are Monday August 9 through Friday August 13.  Check our website for more information

Tropical Storm Agatha Relief Fund for Guatemala

Our friends in Guatemala were hit hard by tropical storm Agatha. Thankfully they’re safe, but the devastation has been severe. Our partners at As Green As It Gets have set up a relief fund and have been working ’round the clock to feed aid workers and help local farmers clean up. Adventure Running Co. will be donating a portion of our tour fees to the relief effort.  Please consider helping them out in any way you can. Thank you!

Exciting New Running Tour in Guatemala!

Adventure Running Co. is excited to announce a collaboration with As Green As It Gets, a non-profit organization in Guatemala which focuses on economic development and environmentally sustainable agriculture, to provide an exciting new trail running tour in 2010.  While this is very short notice, we truly believe this will be a special running adventure.  In addition, the 2010 tour will be offered at a reduced price since it will be the first Guatemalan tour.

Over the course of the 8 day tour, runners will not only have the opportunity to run up a volcano and make camp at the top, but they’ll also run through green walled valleys and coffee plantations, across a steep gorge on a swinging bridge, and overlook the amazing crater lake of Atitlan.  While still a running tour, this trip will offer so much more, as runners immerse themselves in the Guatemalan culture, eating dinner in the homes of local coffee farmers, help local farmers harvest and process the coffee that will be used on the rest of the tour and run through many small villages along the route.  This running tour will encompass an amazing variety of scenery.  You won’t just run through the countryside, but you’ll experience it first-hand as you get to know the local people, from the local guides that you’ll run with to the families that you’ll dine with to the coffee farmers that you’ll harvest with.

Adventure Running Co. embraces the vision of As Green As It Gets to provide more than just a tour, but a cultural experience that will enrich you while supporting the work of As Green As It Gets and the producers they sponsor.  As Green As It Gets helps entrepreneurial men and women from disadvantaged communities to establish independent, sustainable businesses so that they can improve their living conditions and stimulate their local economies.  Adventure Running Co. hopes, that by partnering with As Green As It Gets, we can provide an amazing running experience while producing additional business opportunities for local entrepreneurs.

2010 Adventure Running Co. Tours

We hope the holiday season finds you well and full of good cheer! As 2009 winds to a close, we’re happy to announce our tours planned for 2010. We’ll be offering a couple of tours that were very successful and well received by participants last year as well as a couple of new tours in 2010.  We’re also planning our first stage race scheduled for August 2010.

At the end of May (May 31 to June 4) we will be running our popular Maah Daah Hey Trail tour which follows the 100 mile long Maah Daah Hey Trail and explores the badlands of this enchanted landscape.

In June (June 14 to June 18) we’ll be running the Superior Trail tour which follows one of the most scenic segments of the spectacular Superior Hiking Trail high above mighty Lake Superior.

In July (date to be one week prior to or week after the Hardrock 100 race) we’ll be running our first Grand 100’s tour on the Hardrock 100 route.  Over the course of 5 days, you’ll be able to explore the spectacular scenery along the Hardrock 100 course while enjoying a mix of lodging opportunities which include two nights in lodges in Ouray and Telluride and two nights camping along the majestic Continental Divide.
In August (August 9 to August 13) we’ll once again be exploring the high country in Colorado on our fabulous Colorado Trail tour.

Finally in September (date to be determined) we’ll be setting out to explore the dramatic Northeast segment of the Tahoe Rim Trail overlooking the turquoise waters of Lake Tahoe on our Tahoe Rim Trail tour.

In addition to our tours, we’re also planning our first stage race in 2010, the VoyageurQuest Stage Race to be held in Northern Minnesota on the Superior Hiking Trail.  This will be a four day stage race beginning on Thursday August 26 and ending on Sunday August 29.  More information will be coming soon on a new website dedicated to the VoyageurQuest Stage Race.
The dates listed above are tentative at this time.  Please check our website and blog for updates.  We’ll be updating our website with confirmed dates and tour prices, as well as an updated registration form soon.
We’re hoping that you’ll find one of our adventure running tours to your liking in 2010 and that you’ll join us for a great time on a beautiful trail.  Hoping to see you soon on the trails!
