Run the Purcells

Alpine running from a plush backcountry lodge!

This is a coached, luxury backcountry running at its finest as we explore the remote Purcell Mountain range. While our luggage gets helicoptered in, we will begin by running into the alpine and arriving at the Purcell Mountain Lodge by foot. We will have the trails to ourselves as we introduce you to mixed terrain travel including off trail routes, sweet singletrack and peak bagging. This is a great intro to high alpine mountain running as we help you develop your climbing, descending and ability to move well on the trails.  Fully catered, no one will be hungry we promise. The food is gourmet and the lodge is stunning. A rare opportunity to explore this terrain. There has been no other trail running adventure to this area offered before!  All inclusive (shuttles, food, lodging, guides.) The only extra's are if you wish to sip on drinks in the evenings...the bar will be open
