Resorts West and Mizuno to Host High-Altitude Luxury Running Camp in Park City
World Championships marathon qualifier Renee Metivier-Baillie will lead retreat
Park City, Utah – June 18, 2013 – Resorts West has partnered with Mizuno USA, Inc. to host a three-day high-altitude trail running camp showcasing the stunning views and endless variety of Park City’s mountain trails. Led by world-class Mizuno athlete Renee Metivier-Baillie, a recent IAAF World Championship marathon qualifier who placed eighth at the 2012 Chicago Marathon shortly after Achilles surgery with a debut 2:27:17, the Mizuno Mountain Running Camp will target recreational runners who want to reach their full racing potential while balancing a busy life.
Focusing on injury prevention, recovery and efficient training, the camp will feature daily morning and evening runs, a comprehensive drills clinic, stretching routines led by Renee’s coach, husband and massage therapist, Austin Baillie, morning yoga and daily inspirational lectures drawing from Renee’s personal experience as an elite athlete. Runners will stay in luxury homes managed by Resorts West with out-the-door trail access.
“We are excited to launch this inaugural camp with Mizuno, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about having such well-spoken and enthusiastic athletes as Renee and Austin at the helm,” said Resorts West President James Ballstaedt. “We have long felt that Park City is a hidden trail running mecca, and we are looking forward to showing off the terrain.”
Located just 45 minutes from the Salt Lake International Airport, Park City is perhaps best known for its three world-class ski resorts and winter sports facilities; but with more than 300 miles of scenic, well-maintained mountain trails, Park City is quickly garnering attention as an easily accessible running destination.
“I can’t wait to be in beautiful Park City with a group of enthusiastic runners,” exclaimed Renee. “I’ve gone through my share of trials and tribulations to get to where I am, and I’m excited to share what I’ve learned along the way in order to help others be healthier, faster, and happier athletes!”
The Mizuno Mountain Running Camp will take place from Oct. 17 to 20, 2013 and includes:
· Three nights’ lodging at a luxury mountain property with hot tub and gourmet kitchen stocked with healthy snacks.
· Locally inspired meals prepared in-home by a private chef.
· Transportation to trails and support on long runs with water.
