2017 Travel Adventures

Are you ready to tackle a staged race in the Rockies?  Join Team ELM TRR and we will make sure you are more than ready!  Team ELM is heading to Colorado for the Trans Rockies Run in August 2017 and we would love to have you join us!  This world renowned event offers both 3 day and 6 day staged racing options in the spectacular Colorado Rockies. The TRR will be an awesome adventure that will test your endurance AND double as a fantastic week of mountain run training.  A few weeks after this event you will be in the best running shape of your life (and even have extra red blood cells to help you rock a late season ultra if you choose;).

Interested? Here is what you need to do!
1. Register for the race distance of your choice, using the discount code 'teamelm' to receive a $100 discount on your race registration fee!  Be sure to sign up asap to secure the current rates- they will be going up again soon.  Don't forget to list Team ELM as your club!
2. Register for the ELM Trans Rockies Team Training Program of your choice and start your 5 month TRR specific training plan in mid March!  See below for the two Training Program options, In-Person in the Comox Valley and Online from anywhere in the world!

3.  Start Training with the ELM Run Team!

Wondering if this race is for you?  You know our answer...if you want to do it then YES it is!  But seriously, give us a shout and we can chat about the race and training details to give you a better picture of what staged race training and racing is all about.  Don't worry:)  We will build up gradually, have options for personalizing the training plan and ensure you are more than ready to rock this world class mountain running stage race in August!

And...more exciting news...The TRR will be a warm up for our epic 2018 event...The Trans Alps in Europe! One thing at a time...but get stoked!

We hope you will join Team ELM in Colorado next year for this once in a lifetime mountain running adventure that will test your limits and take your running fitness to new 'heights'.
