There are training rides, and then there are training rides. Early morning rides in Costa Rica offer the opportunity to see more of this gorgeous country. Our "SAG" support van is with our group to provide hydration, snacks, ice and bike tools. Hop in if you need to take a break!

More than 40km of soft and well-groomed trails at Las Catalinas provide every athlete and guest with a peaceful pathway for trail running, walking or hiking. There are miles and miles of mapped courses and markers for you. All of our run training is done based on time, not distance.

ACCOMMODATIONS FEE

Accommodations fees are booked separately and are non-refundable. If you decide you must cancel your camp on or after December 31, 2018, no refunds will be made, as we are within the final days leading up to the camp and all camp vendors, suppliers, and materials will already have been contracted and purchased to prepare for your arrival in Costa Rica.
