ADVENTURE HIKES IN GREAT DESTINATIONS

VISITORS:
Please sign the Guest Book
tell us why you visited our web site; what you like or not, 
and if you are interested in a future adventure with us. 




 BE IN THE KNOW: 
Get on or off the Coach's Running & Hiking Friends email List.  Running & Hiking Friends of Ron Gunn are the first to be informed and have the first option on trips and events before they are open to the general public.  Some events are not advertised beyond the Friends List and the web site.

ALL TRIPS are planned for everyone, regardless of  ability.  Many of our travelers are empty nesters with a sense of adventure ready to take on a marathon-like challenge for the first time.  Others find this energy infectious and benefit from the atmosphere.
 
Many enjoy the trip who are there to cheer on and to celebrate victory with the more adventurous hikers. Those who cannot hike much we call "Cheerleaders."
Cheerleaders are a welcome and valued part of our teams! 
 
Call Coach Gunn if you have any questions. 

See the Photo Gallery for photos from previous trips of ordinary people doing the extraordinary and having the time of their lives.

Testimonial pages to hear it directly from our trip veterans.
