.Spend a weekend training, mingling, yoga-ing, dining, and relaxing with like-minded athletes in beautiful Mid Coast Maine. Hosted by the Craignair Inn and led by Patrick Caron and Greg Soutiea.
Patrick is a professional mountain, ultra, trail athlete who fell in love with running at an early age. Most weekends he can be found racing and adventuring throughout New England, as well as abroad on the international scene. He has been passionate about finding ways to give back to the greater community as well as the planet through running, such as his work with the Boston Bulldogs Running Club and his recent launch of the lifestyle brand Move Free.
Greg, along with his wife Lauren and their two Vizlas, Gretel and Gertie, owns and manages the Craignair Inn & Restaurant by the Sea in Spruce Head, ME. Running the inn has become the main priority, but in his free time Greg’s passion is for ultramarathons, especially 100-mile and 24-hour track events.
