About

Aspire organizes single and multi-day running adventures in wilderness terrain across Cascadia and Northern California. We provide logistical and emergency support paired with delicious meals and community for a unique and memorable backcountry running experience. 

 

Mission

To inspire and support connections with runners and wild spaces.

We Believe

  1. All human beings are runners. Some just like it more than others.

  2. Physical activity in nature brings people joy, which makes the world a better place.

Our Values

  • Wilderness experiences that humble and inspire

  • Stewardship and advocacy for wild spaces

  • An active and ego free community

  • Laughter, story, and the sharing of good food and drink

  • The relentless pursuit of physical, mental, and spiritual growth

 

Food

The best meals of our lives should happen outdoors and be shared with friends after a long day on the trail. We serve delicious seasonal fare, such as grilled salmon, fresh salads, dutch oven cobblers and hand churned ice cream. We stock our coolers with beer, wine, kombucha, and an assortment of recovery beverages. We work with individual runners to ensure that our menus meet a wide range of dietary needs and preferences.

Accommodations

Camping is frequently at the core of our trips and we go all out providing group shelters, heaters, phone/watch/camera charging stations, hot showers, and lively amenities for a comfortable glamp style experience. Not into camping? Check out our courses based out of lodges and cabins!

Transportation

We frequently start our trips in metropolitan areas and shuttle runners to our courses. We can also arrange airport pick-ups for those travelling from out of town.
