Anyone who comes on a Strive Trip is generally looking to immerse themselves in new cultures and new experiences, while also being committed to his or her athletic training. Each day will be packed with learning and service, exploring a new place, and staying active. In all of our programs, we are more interested in your dedication to the ideals of the program – service, athletics, and adventure – than in any quantitative measure of speed or ability. We have had athletes who have been Division I college recruits all the way to students who just like to stay active but don’t consider themselves pinned to one sport. Strive participants have come from just about all sports: running, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, swimming, crew, field hockey, triathlon, hockey, skiing, wrestling. Whichever end of the spectrum you find yourself on or what sport is your passion, our group leaders and coaches will make sure you have the opportunity to push yourself as an athlete and as a person.
College students who are interested in Strive should read about and apply to the Strive College Intern Program, where you’ll learn about service, athletics, and adventure from a point of view of more responsibility.
Adult runners of all levels (and even non-runners!) are welcome to join us on our 10-day trips specifically designed active adult travelers.
