50 miles, 2 days, one amazing run adventure on the remnants of an ancient volcano between Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams.

Though slightly worn from erosion, the resulting sculpted landscape of meadows, lakes, and peaks is a runner’s paradise.


Aspire Adventure Running – North Cascades Traverse – Sept 7 – 9, 2023

80 miles, 3 days, and a crossing of the entirety of North Cascades National Park, a rugged mountain range defined by its rocky spires, glacier-cut valleys, ancient trees, and temperate rain forests. Enjoy darting through a network of trails that parallels rivers and creeks and runs by waterfalls as you undertake this east-west crossing of the whole park.

Aspire Adventure Running – Nooksack Ridgelines – Aug 24 – 27, 2023

8-34 miles, 4 days, and a beautiful experience in the North Cascades as you run up to rugged peaks, by expansive glaciers, and on miles of single track trails.

This Washington running camp kicks off at the Excelsior Camp on the Nooksack River, which is filled to the brim with glacial snowmelt from Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan. Over three days, you’ll run along three ridgelines that’ll push you to your limits, with distances between 8-30 miles. In the evenings you’ll unwind as you share meals, drinks, and good times.


Aspire Adventure Running – Three Devils Family Rendezvous – Sept 2 – 4, 2023

14-26 miles, 3 days, and a family-friendly camp setting that still lets you get your long run in. On the running side, you’ll have a trio of mountain runs to choose from that begin and end at Diablo Lake. Choose from Sourdough, Desolation, and Ruby summits for a different experience.

Then it’s back to camp, where nature-based age-appropriate activities are great for children, youth, and teens alike. The Aspire staff take care of the evening meals so you can enjoy the weekend with your family and the others in this unique mountain setting.

Aspire Adventure Running – Territory Run Camp – Sept 28 – Oct 1, 2023

As the calendar and the seasons change to fall, trail runners migrate to the mountains. Take advantage of the cooler temps, beautiful leaves, and crisp air for a weekend focused on running and on runners. In this weekend run camp, you’ll be based at a lodge to set you up for days of challenging, impressive runs and evenings sharing meals and laughs.
