Hillbillies Trail Camp

Hillbillies 2018 Trail Camp 

March 1-4, 2018

Hillbillies Trail Camp


Consider this your personal invitation to join us at Hillbillies Trail Camp!

We are going to be running some of the best trails in the entire PNW. Seriously, Moran State Park on Orcas Island has some of the most wonderful single-track trail in Washington.  We will provide clearly marked routes that will allow you to explore the island’s best offerings without having to plan your own routes.  Plus, you’ll have seasoned trail runner Brian Morrison leading you over the mountains and through the hills. The coaches and camp staff will provide the same amazing service and knowledge that we've come to be known for in the shop.

Whether a seasoned trail veteran or an aspiring trail runner, this camp has something for everyone.  You can choose to treat this like a relaxing weekend retreat, a focused workshop, or something in between.  Be prepared to learn as much as you like and to have a lot of fun along the way.  We don’t want this in any way to be or to feel exclusive, but you’ll enjoy everything camp has to offer if you’re comfortable being on your feet for two hours or more at a time.  There are no speed requirements, nor are there really any distance requirements, but you’ll definitely be able to maximize your camp experience if you’re comfortable on the move for a couple of hours at a time. Oh, and be ready to feel like a more seasoned trail runner by the end of it!

Other camp highlights include daily Gear Expo with our favorite vendors. You will spend the weekend demoing shoes, hydration packs, bottles, compression gear, nutrition, and massage tools. Additionally, we'll provide nourishing and delicious meals with vegetarian and gluten-free options.
