High Altitude Training This Summer

Mar. 9, 2018

Last week we highlighted a few low-altitude XTERRA-style training camps put on by some of our World Champion XTERRA racers, this week, we turn the spotlight on a camp that takes participants up into the Colorado Rockies.

2015 XTERRA World Champion Josiah Middaugh and his brother Yaro just announced a high-altitude training camp in Minturn, Colorado (elevation 7,861) from June 28 to July 1, 2018.

“This camp is specifically designed for athletes racing the XTERRA Beaver Creek and the Pan American Championship in Ogden, Utah,” explained Middaugh, who has won both those races many times.

The camp will cover training and race strategy including open water swimming in Nottingham Lake, the same lake used for the Mountain Championships, and then head out on the same trails used for the run and bike courses.

The Middaugh brothers have partnered with the Bunkhouse in Minturn, Colorado to offer a unique setting and atmosphere. Camp participants have the option of staying in the hostel and getting to know other like-minded athletes or finding their own accommodations nearby.

“Whether it’s your first time racing these events or your 10th, this camp is for you,” said Middaugh.
