UESCA Ultrarunning Coach Conference


2023 UESCA Ultrarunning Coach Conference

Taking place at the Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs, CO, the 2023 UESCA Ultrarunning Coach Conference will take place over three days (September 29th to October 1st) and will be the first of its kind. The conference will be headlined by UESCA principal and renowned ultrarunning coach and author, Jason Koop.

The conference will be comprised of 16 sessions that delve into a variety of areas. Below is a sample of some of the session topics:

  • Training Program Development
  • Environmental Physiology
  • Athlete Acquisition and Retention
  • Biomechanics
  • Ultrarunning-Specific Nutritional Considerations
  • Ultrarunning Psychology
  • Athlete Recovery

The conference will provide a blend of classroom, outdoors (trail), and panel discussion sessions to engage the attendees in ways that traditional classroom-only conferences do not.

The conference session structure will not have overlapping sessions. Therefore, attendees will not have to pick which sessions they most want to attend and miss the rest. We do not believe that this is the correct format. As such, all of the sessions will take place sequentially so that attendees can attend all of the sessions, if they so choose.

While the learning component of the conference is important, we understand that facilitating social and networking opportunities is of equal importance. As such, the conference will integrate fun runs, breakout rooms for networking, and an evening (Saturday) social get-together where attendees can mingle with other attendees and presenters.

The conference is open to current and aspiring ultrarunning coaches.

In addition to learning from the incredible conference presenters, as an attendee of the conference, you’ll also get:

  • Lunch on Friday and Saturday
  • Social event on Saturday evening with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and Athletic Brewing beer (cash bar available)
