Ultimook Camp's Mission

Our mission is to develop long distance runners in both mind and body.  We offer a REAL cross country experience with a unique mixture of beautiful runs, great training, knowledgeable speakers, and team building challenges.

Best Runs on the Coast

The unsurpassed beauty and rugged terrain of the OR Coast offers a unique training environment that will challenge and inspire runners of all levels, with trips to various beaches, logging roads, and trails.

Sasquatch Games

The Sasquatch Games is the ultimate team building exercise.  Whether you come as an individual or as a team, you’ll all go home with a deeper love for the sport and a passion for leadership and working together as a team.

Find True North

Leadership and teamwork are the keys to good, long-term, team success.  The Ultimook Camp will be facilitating a character building curriculum called Habitudes, which teaches timeless character and leadership principles.

Beautiful Runs, Great Training, Guest Speakers, & Team Building Exercises.

“Our Mission at The Ultimook Running Camp is to develop long distance runners in both mind and body. This includes training and racing philosophy, character development, and leadership skills.  Our desire is to expose you to a REAL cross country experience.  We will prepare you for the challenges of a tough cross country season as well as the ups and downs of every day life.  We’re building leaders and want you to be a part of the team.”

                 –Patrick Zweifel, Ultimook Camp Founder
