Weather, altitude & PREPARATION
The Grand Canyon area is well known for drastic weather patterns. Although the camp is during the fall, cold and inclement weather can always occur. Under normal conditions, evenings will dip into the 30s and 40s and the high afternoon temperatures in the lower portions of the Canyon will be between 70-85°F. With these conditions in mind, make sure you bring a least one set of appropriate gear such as a rain jacket, coat and pants.
The North Rim's elevation is 8200 feet and the South Rim's elevation is 6800 feet. This high altitude makes running more difficult. We strongly encourage that all runners slow down and run at a more relaxed pace.
In addition to this, we recommend that all runners prepare for camp with adequate training. Runners that are adequately prepared at sea level will adjust more rapidly and with less effort than unprepared runners. We suggest preparing for camp by running (on average) at least 35 miles per week the 3 weeks prior to camp and with a long run of at least 18 miles.
