Cavallo Point : The Ultimate Running Vacation

For those looking for a running vacation in Northern California this looks amazing. My wife and I are heading down there for our honeymoon and are going to check it out.

The Ultimate Running Experience at Cavallo Point
Dean Karnazes, The Ultramarathon Man

September 28 – October 1, 2008
About the Program

Dean Karnazes has run literally thousands of miles on roads, trails, coastlines, mountains, but his favorite spot in the world is Cavallo Point’s backyard — the Marin Headlands. Dean was named by Time magazine as one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World” in 2006. The January 2007 cover of Outside magazine hailed him as “America’s Greatest Runner.” An internationally-recognized endurance athlete and bestselling author, Dean has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits. Join the Ultramarathon Man for three days of running fun. You explore the area’s captivating backroads and trails, receive valuable training and nutrition tips, and become inspired and motivated to keep going farther than you ever thought possible.

  • The adventure is approximately 20 guests.
  • The week begins with dinner on Sunday night and ends after breakfast Wednesday.
  • The fee is $1765 and includes the program with Dean, all meals, a cooking/nutrition demonstration, and a copy of Dean’s book.
