Run Skoki Lodge - Banff National Park
Hut Based Running in the Heart of Banff National Park
Located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Banff National Park needs no introduction. Towering rock walls, massive mountains, and quiet lakes make trail running a runner's dream in the Lake Louise area. We will fastpack our way into Skoki Lodge on day 1 and call this National Historic Site home for the next few days. Get your cameras ready and come to explore some truly breathtaking backcountry terrain with us in July 2019. Jen Segger and Ross Berg will host this inaugural trip as they share their passion for adventure running with you.
Our Skoki trail running trip features big days on the trail followed by warm and relaxing evenings back at the lodge. Enjoy hearty meals and a cozy bed as we experience unique backcountry accommodations (no electricity or internet, BUT there are down comforters, flannel sheets, wood-burning stoves and kerosene lighting for our comforts). Enjoy freshly baked bread in the morning and breakfast and dinner buffets to start and finish our days. If the likes of Prince William & Kate could take-in this “rustic” Rockies experience, then I am pretty sure that us trail runners will more than appreciate everything that the Skoki Lodge has to offer.

Is This For You
This is a challenging trip of 3 days of alpine running. It would be best if you were prepared to run 15 - 20km per day with up to 1500m of elevation gain. Ready to brave potentially challenging weather, camp out in backcountry cabins and, most important, connect with a new group of runners.
