WHY TRAIN AT ALTITUDE?
Physiological studies on endurance running and altitude training suggest a 28 day acclimatization period for significant endurance boosts, as well as support for the "live high, train low" approach to altitude training. CRR is located at 8,000' elevation, the sweet spot for a living area while altitude training. Access to 5,000' elevation for high intensity workouts is less than 1 hour away.
