  No place like Grand Canyon!
Below are a few reasons why Cairn Stone vets


MAR 2019
(Still very early in planning stages.)  
February 2017, Coach Gunn traveled to
New Zealand with his son Jake for a
3 week marathon setup trip!


 Best of New Zealand 

Coach Gunn raises the bar with this one.  
Long a popular destination request from many
of his veteran Cairn Stone travelers he has now
set his sights on the unique topography of beautiful
New Zealand for our FEB/MAR 2019 hiking adventure.  


Cairn Stone vets have been signing up since this trip was first announced in a newsletter to everyone on Coach Gunn's
  
Friends email list February 2nd, 2016.

 There are two must do hiking experiences on the Hawaiian Islands.  Coach Gunn plans to do both of them as part of this trip!  What a great way to break up the long flights and minimize the jet lag.

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.
