Travel with Purpose. Be Daring. Trek Off The Beaten Path.

Running Treks is an adventure travel company that combines outdoor fitness and cultural immersion.

You do not need to be a runner to enjoy a trip with Running Treks. We explore each destination with many physical activities like hiking, kayaking, biking, horseback riding, yoga, rock climbing, and trail running.

You will notice that each trip contains a special Mission: a purpose, to discover something new, to learn and grow, and to contribute to others in meaningful ways.

The Mission can be a challenge, to be daring, to step outside of your normal routine and your comfort zone.

As Helen Keller once said: "Life is a daring adventure, or nothing."  Running Treks strives to create the experience of a daring adventure on all of our trips, to make each trip unique and memorable to all participants.

Every Running Treks trip includes:

  • Outdoor fitness
  • Comfortable accommodations
  • Meeting local fitness and running community
  • Cultural exploration
  • Healthy food
  • Running coaching if needed (injury prevention, efficient bio-mechanics, customized running programs)

February 8, 2015 -- After finishing San Blas Half Marathon in Coamo, Puerto Rico - one of the hardest races I've ever run. Heartbreak Hill has nothing on the hills (mountains) here. Most of our Running Treks participants agreed that this Half was harder than most Full marathons they have run, mostly due to the heat, humidity, and very long steep hills. 
It was also amazing to be lined up so close to elite Kenyan runners in this international race of 1000 runners. Kenyan runners took 6 or 7 first places .. as to be expected .. with a winning time of 1:04:13. The town of Coamo hosts the largest party of the year on this same day - 250,000 spectators were there to see a motorbike show and our Half Marathon. The whole place pulsed with music all day.

Here's a link to the San Blas Half Marathon results.
