"We don't sleep on the ground and there's a pub at the end of every wilderness trail." Coach Gunn
All training and destinations include all hike abilities from moderate to extreme. Every destination has one extreme hike challenge that takes months of marathon-like training to prepare. This is not for everyone. Most of our hikers do not do this but enjoy supporting those that do.
Since 2004 Coach Gunn has taken hiking groups to Grand Canyon 11 times, to Pacific Northwest twice , Northern California, Boston-Cape Cod, Hawaii 3 times, Italy, Scotland, Spain
and New Zealand.
In 2021 it's the Best of Utah

& Antelope Canyon, AZ)

Adventure hikes at incredible destinations: We usually travel in Fall; September/October. Hike training begins in January.
Hiking with us in 2020-two ways:
Join the Utah trip or as a Training Partner. Hikes are progressively longer and bi-weekly on great venues.
Most hikes include a half hour lecture prior - it is a training program to prepare you to experience something truly extraordinary!
The travel is an adventure but
so is this training program.
NOTE: 2020 hiking season is now on a maintenance schedule and not progressive. Our max distances will mostly be at the half marathon distance. The 2021 season will be progressive to meet the maximum goals of the program.
