In conjunction with Coach Eric's exciting new book release, The Cool Impossible, we are excited to announce Fuego y Agua's first ever ultrarunning retreat led by Coach Eric Orton.

Coach Eric Orton and Fuego y Agua Events invite you to join us on an adventurous ultrarunning retreat on the volcanic Island of Ometepe, Nicaragua. 

As a mountain runner, coach, author, and entrepreneur, Eric Orton has spent a lifetime exploring human potential and the limitless possibilities of the body and mind. 

Eric earned international notoriety as the coach of Christopher McDougall, a relationship that initially began with Eric helping McDougall train for and joining him to race the 50-mile Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon with the Tarahumara Indians. That story served as the foundation for McDougall's 2009 best-selling book, "Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen."

Fuego y Agua’s retreat with Coach Eric provides the opportunity for like-minded athletes to practice and learn the intricacies of ultrarunning  in an exotic and foreign environment.
