Maverick Camp Endeavour Cortina, Italy 2023
June 2 - 4 2023 | Cortina, Italy
Come with us on an adventure in the Dolomite Mountains – one truly special corner of the Alps. A UNESCO world heritage site, the Dolomites span a huge 90,000 acres of unique terrain.
We will be based in Cortina d’Ampezzo, an old mountain town steeped in history and culture sat beautifully in the valley of the river Boite. With many famous mountain races starting here, including the Ultra Trail World Tour gem Lavaredo ultra trail you can be guaranteed that there are a plethora of incredible routes to explore. With some hugely experienced mountain leaders guiding the way, more than anything we want to make a weekend that will stay etched in your memories.
Our camps are aimed at those who want to enjoy exploring with an awesome gang, learn some new skills and work on others – this is not a camp for elite runners but for those who need to fill their soul with the mountains.
