THE RUN SMART PROJECT RUNNING RETREATS

Geared toward runners of all abilities, each of the week-long Run SMART adult running retreats this summer in Flagstaff, Ariz., include classroom-style instruction from legendary coach Dr. Jack Daniels, daily group trail runs on scenic mountain trails, nutritional tips and advice, personalized shoe-fitting and gait analysis sessions, yoga classes and a run through a portion of the Grand Canyon. www.runsmartproject.com

ACTIVE AT ALTITUDE TRAIL RUNNING CLINICS

The majestic Rocky Mountains provide an inspirational backdrop for four days of intense trail running, drills, trail technique clinics and form assessment with Nancy Hobbs and Adam Chase, authors of “The Ultimate Guide to Trail Running.” Camps are based out of Estes Park, Colo., (altitude 7,500 feet!) and take place in the spring and fall, when the trails, weather and local flora are optimal for long trail runs. www.activeataltitude.com
