Craig Braun | Camp Lead, owner of MAMMOTH

Here's a formal invitation to come visit my home town of Chattanooga, TN - the scenic city, one of the most under rated trail running cities in the country - a true outdoor enthusiasts paradise. 

During camp, we'll spend A LOT of time exploring the best local trails in the mountains, enjoy home cooked meals at the house on Lookout Mountain, enjoy some local eats and treats, visit some of the best attractions around town and build a strong, small community of people around you and your goals for the upcoming season. The off season is upon us - it's a time to excel and make huge gains in your program, or fall off and have to start up again come spring... don't do that!

Runners of all experience and ability are encouraged to come to camp. Let's get to work.
