Fall in New England. Quiet dirt roads. Amazing scenery and brilliant Vermont leaves. Excellent coaching and instruction. No bugs. Vermont Fresh Network food. What more do you need for a perfect fall getaway? Our running camp schedule ends with Foliage camps timed to coincide with the peak of Vermont’s striking fall color.
While there’s never a bad time to visit the Center, autumn is especially spectacular. The Center’s trails are ablaze with color, Hosmer Pond is still warm enough for swimming and the crisp air makes for invigorating morning runs. In addition to running, you’ll enjoy excellent instruction, yoga, hiking, coach/ athlete one-on-one consultations, a relaxed atmosphere, and delicious food from our Vermont Fresh Network certified dining hall. It’s a great camp for runners with partners who don’t necessarily share their depth of passion about the sport.
Sign up today and come enjoy a spectacular display of fall foliage.
Prices on running vacations are all inclusive: double occupancy room with shared bath (upgrades available for more space to spread out), delicious meals from our Vermont Fresh Network Dining Hall, use of all our facilities including the Activity Center gym/ weight room, one-on-one coaching consultations with our professional coaching staff, as well as optional field trips around the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.
