The Appalachian Mountains
This is a 5-day trip from Wednesday, April 20th through Sunday April 24th with the race option on Saturday the 23rd.
Our cabin is located just 15-20 min outside of Boone near Foscoe in the mountains. You will have your own twin bed or share a queen or king bed with a friend (depending on how many people we have). In the rare circumstance that neither of these options are available or work for you, we can also provide air mattresses.
We will have 2-3 healthy home-cooked meals each day to keep you happy and race-ready! We also will provide snacks and things to munch on during the day in between meals. Feel free to bring alcohol and personal beverages or specific race nutrition as that will not be provided.
We will provide your transportation to and from the Charlotte airport . We also provide transportation to each of the planned ventures, the race site for packet pick-up, and to the race start on Saturday morning.

I REALLY HAD A GREAT TIME WITH THE TRAIL ROOTS TEAM! ERIK ORGANIZED AND EXECUTED A GREAT EVENT OVERALL. WE HAD PLENTY OF TIME TO GET SETTLED AND MIX WITH THE REST OF THE TEAM AND REALLY CONNECT. THE GROUP DYNAMIC WAS VERY POSITIVE AND MADE THE TOTAL EXPERIENCE AMAZING. THE LEADVILLE TRAIL MARATHON WAS A VERY HARD RACE THAT ERIK PREPARED ME FOR DESPITE MY CHALLENGING SCHEDULE. DELIVERING A FUN TRIP IN AND AROUND THIS RACE WAS ABOVE AND BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS FROM MY COACH! I'LL DEFINITELY SIGN UP FOR ANOTHER TRAIL ROOTS EVENT IN THE FUTURE. - 2015 Traveler
