If the ELM Tyax Trail Running Retreat isn't up your alley then perhaps a road trip to HAWAII is more your speed?? Yup, that's right folks, Team ELM is heading to Oahu this year!
This fall a group of trail runners will train, travel and compete as part of Team ELM (Equilibrium Lifestyle Management) in the XTERRA Half MarathonTrail Running World Championships in Hawaii on November 24th.
"The race will take place over some of the most scenic and diverse terrain on the planet at the majestic Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii. The 4000 acre ranch reaches from the steep mountain cliffs to the sparkling sea and the terrain varies from dense rainforest to broad open valleys, with close up views of beautiful white sand beaches and awesome verdant cliff faces. The epic nature of Kualoa Ranch has served as a scenic backdrop for numerous television shows and films such as Jurassic Park and Godzilla."
Beginning on August 18th, runners will train for 14 weeks leading up to their goal event on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. The program includes weekly coached running sessions with ELM, a 2 hour trail racing workshop led by Sarah Seads and a detailed day by day training plan to prepare to compete in the technical trail half marathon. In addition participants receive an ELM race jersey, entry into the race and a race weekend support/coaching from Sarah Seads.
