PrimalCon Lake Tahoe 2013 Registration Now Open!

primalconLT2013 320x240Back in July, when I announced PrimalCon IV (April 11-14, 2013 in Oxnard, CA), my team and I were absolutely floored to watch the event completely sell out in only nine days. Clearly, PrimalCon has grown from its modest beginnings (33 brave souls came to Oxnard in 2010) to become a centerpiece of the Mark’s Daily Apple community and the Primal lifestyle. Meanwhile, it’s been breaking my heart to repeatedly turn down interested folks who inquire about next April’s Oxnard event. After all, we publish testimonials describing the retreat as “life changing”, and the food as the “best you will ever eat.”

Clearly, something had to be done. And today, I’m pleased to announce PrimalCon Lake Tahoe, slated for September 26th-29th, 2013! Yes, we shall venture beyond the shores of Southern California to experience one of the most beautiful natural environments on earth, during the best time of the year there. We have taken over the Camp Richardson Historic Resort, situated right on the Southern shore of the lake, between South Lake Tahoe, CA and Emerald Bay. We have reserved various dwellings on the property, including the historic Camp Richardson Hotel and Camp Richardson House, Beachside Motel, and deluxe cabins that sleep between 2 and 8 people. All the lodging options are described and shown (pics and video) at the Camp Richardson website. You’ll book directly with the resort – instructions to follow.

While the PrimalCon Oxnard agenda template and returning presenters have been well-received, we want to offer a slightly different experience in Lake Tahoe. We’ll feature some new presenters itching to share their magic, and devote ample time to engage with nature on mountain hikes and water activities on the lake.

If you want to go full Primal and tent camp, we have a few spots reserved at Camp Richardson, email with interest.

Weather

Watch the forecast before your departure and pack well in case of extremes. Average high on Sept 26th is 70 ºF, average low is 32 ºF. Sunrise 6:52 am, sunset 6:50 pm.

More About PrimalCon

In case you haven’t heard (or reviewed the links from 2010, 2011, and 2012), PrimalCon is our three-day health and fitness retreat – a total immersion weekend experience of expert-guided workouts, play, leisure time, lectures and presentations with assorted expert presenters on Primal-related topics, camaraderie with fellow Primal enthusiasts, and extraordinary Primal feasts – an experience that you will never forget for the rest of your life. PrimalCon is more than just great food and a lively and diverse agenda blending lectures. The truly magical element is the gathering of like-minded folks from all over the globe who share a tremendous passion for living Primally.

PrimalCon welcomes participants of all fitness and experience levels. Really, we make it work for everyone! If you’re a hardcore CrossFit Games type, we’ll have stuff to test your mettle, including our legendary PrimalCon Ultimate Frisbee battles (winners hit the dinner buffet line first—high stakes indeed!). If you are new to Primal living, relatively unfit, injured, whatever, don’t worry – you will fit right in. Our staff makes a sincere effort to ensure that you receive appropriate guidance and pace yourself well all weekend. We also offer extensive pick-and-choose flexibility on the daily agendas, so you can custom design your ideal experience. Yep, you can engage with your favorite presenter repeatedly, or escape to the lake for a spell – we won’t tell!

The conference fee is $849, which includes morning Primal Fuel coconut milk smoothies and snack spreads, delicious catered Primal lunch and dinner buffets, and a lavish goodie bag of apparel and other Primal gear. Upon receipt of your registration, we encourage you to call Camp Richardson (800-544-1801) and immediately book your accommodations. To ensure an intimate experience and direct engagement with me and the other presenters, slots are limited to the first 100 registrants.

What to Expect from PrimalCon Lake Tahoe 2013

Seminars and presentations include general sessions with me and other featured presenters with specialized areas of expertise directly related to the Primal movement.

Pic13 IMG 0113 2

Workouts will take place on the Camp Richardson beach, in the water, or at a nearby high school athletic field (or gymnasium in the event of inclement weather). Experts in Primal Blueprint Fitness will guide you in small groups with sessions designed to educate and invigorate you without risking overstress or injury. Again, this conference is for absolutely everyone. Whether you’re in great shape, or you’re injured, relatively unfit, or unfamiliar with the Primal Blueprint, this weekend can kick-start a brand new way of life!

We’ll have all kinds of fun, games, and relaxation, including a spectacular hike to the secluded Angora Lake, with an easy option (2 miles roundtrip, 250’ elevation gain on a wide, smooth trail) and a challenging ridgeline ascent option (2.8 miles, 1,250′ elevation gain); a spectacular luxury yacht sunset cruise to world-famous Emerald Bay; kayaking and standup paddling at Lake Tahoe; Ultimate Frisbee matches; and free time for small group engagement with the presenters of your choice (wanna learn to tightrope-walk?).

Visible in foreground is the Upper Angora lake (hike finish). Just behind is Lower Angora lake (short hike start). Behind that is Fallen Leaf lake (long hike start), with expansive Lake Tahoe just behind Fallen Leaf lake in background.

We’ll have lavish Primal feasts featuring ridiculously colorful and enticing lunch and dinner buffets from our same chef from Oxnard, David Aflalo of Above and Beyond Catering. Enjoy an amazing assortment of fresh-cooked, locally grown, pasture-raised, premium quality Primal offerings. Linger after dinner for social time as the spectacular Tahoe sunset marks the end of the day. We’ll then convene at Camp Richardson’s fantastic camp fire facility (seats 100+!) and bust out the wine and exquisite dark chocolate from Ethereal Confections and Santa Barbara Chocolate Company.

While Oxnard has the now world-famous Primal ocean plunge (watch it here), Tahoe will raise you one with the Upper Angora Lake cliff jump! No, not the 70-foot perch favored by local daredevils (makes for fun spectating), but rather a 9-foot option for newbies, or a thrilling 20-foot option for the more adventurous and experienced.

She will take a weekend break from her classes at Stanford to deliver her formal presentations and engage 1:1 with guests to fine tune the way the they stand, sit, and move. Oh, did I mention her participation in the Ultimate Frisbee matches? Words simply do not do justice – this girl gets more air time than Michael Jordan! Don’t let the sweet smile fool you, pick her first for your team….she’ll be the one throwing, running, and catching with perfect technique.

Karen moore and carrie sisson 2590 2

Carrie Sisson and Karen Moore: Carrie and Karen will present their popular Women’s Chat Group, a casual gathering to discuss any and all issues related to being female, being Primal, and living life to the fullest.

With Carrie’s plans rolling for a new Primal Woman book, there will be plenty of opportunity to engage on matters such as how Primal living can help you age gracefully, both in the mind and the body, raising a family, making a contribution beyond family, and female health-related topics.

image002

Tyler and Connor Curley: PrimalCon veterans will hold court on the slackline in their native environs of the Sierra. These entertaining characters more closely resemble Grok than any other present day humans. While they shoulder some heavy staff duties, they will also show you how to play hard with slackline instruction, Ultimate Frisbee domination and maybe even an impromptu cold plunge off the luxury yacht in Emerald Bay – towel-off optional.

Testimonials

Twilliamsafter2“I’ve been fortunate enough to attend three PrimalCons, and they just keep getting better each year. The food is mind-blowingly fantastic, an endless cornucopia, proof to those who need it that the world’s healthiest foods are also the tastiest. The presenters are fascinating, pioneers in their disciplines and deeply inspiring. And of course the attendees are no less remarkable. New friendships are guaranteed to be made, and there’s an ineffable sense of family from the very first night. PrimalCon is far and away the most exciting and delightful event of the year for me.”

MarianneC2 1“I have to admit that I was a little leery about attending my first PrimalCon – shades of the first day of school for the new kid in town. But I’m soooo glad I went. It was a great weekend full of unique experiences and wonderful Primal people. And don’t forget the fabulous food! I learned so much, both from the knowledgeable and skilled presenters and from fellow attendees.  I came away completely energized and even more committed to the Primal life. If anyone has doubts about whether they should attend, I say GO!”

Marianne Callum

TRACY 1395 3“I have been following MDA for the past year and a half and the conference was an event I was looking forward to to help me expand on the primal lifestyle in a hands on kind of way. With all the uniquely different presenters, I was able to refine what information I wanted to learn the most and hone in on that area. Mark really knows how to embrace his followers by sincerely interacting with everyone throughout the event. It was a joy to meet him in person and hear him speak to the group. He is a true pioneer and a great leader in the health and wellness industry. Thanks for everything you do, Mark!”

Tracy Barrett

jennifercook“What makes an Aussie travel over 7,000 miles to attend PrimalCon? The chance to learn, get personal advice and just hang out with a dream list of primal/paleo experts and enthusiasts… It’s the ultimate Primal Masterclass! I came away with new knowledge, new friends, refreshed inspiration and confidence and a few aching muscles that I never knew I had! I even made a new friend who lives in my city back in Australia, what were the chances of that??

I’d recommend PrimalCon to everyone from committed ‘experts’ to those that have barely dipped a toe in the water; regardless of your experience you’ll come away with immediately applicable practical knowledge and skills to improve your quality of life. Bring on PrimalCon 2013!”

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Wow, sounds like a pretty awesome event. The chance to meet Mark and Robb Wolf, that is hard to pass up. There are a lot of presenters, I’ll have to look into whether this fits into my schedule (and my budget).

    Sylvia wrote on November 21st, 2012
    • I am not 69, but 69 is just a number. Of course you won’t be the oldest, and who cares if you are? this is for everyone, don’t hesitate sign up now before you wished you had. Life is short and life for you yes is getting shorter but it’s not all about how long we live, it’s how well we live it. go for it!!!!!

      Konaleen wrote on November 21st, 2012
      • Well, I’m just a tad younger at 68, but I’d certainly have no qualms about going because of my age — we “older” Primal type peeps need to show the young ‘uns how it’s done!

          If you go on the forum about Lake Tahoe there is a few other women wanting to share accommadation too. Hopefully we can organise a lodge between us?? I’m sure all will fall into place.

          Alison Kingston wrote on November 25th, 2012
      • Hi Alison,
        I will be there, but I went ahead and reserved a room at the hotel. See you there I hope.

        brianne wrote on November 23rd, 2012
        • Brianne, are you wanting to share your room? Let me know,they are all sold out. I’m on the waiting list. Thanks

          Sylvia wrote on November 23rd, 2012
  8. Wow. This sounds so amazing. I’d just love to get to know more people who have the same primal attitude towards life. People who eat the same way I do. People who are full of life-energy, who know of and appreciate a good run or strength-training, who live their life to the fullest and can teach me new things.
    I wish I could fly over from Germany to join.
    What about hosting a Primal-Con there. There are a lot of people here who’d need it. That’s for sure!

    P.S.: What’s the usual lower limit of age?

    Richie wrote on November 21st, 2012
  9. I would LOVE to attend…hopefully I can get the funds together to do so before the tickets sell out.

    Please have a PrimalCon on the east coast! Especially around NYC :)

  12. PLEASE do this again in 2014….believe it or not, the ONLY firm commitment I have for 2013 is a trip to Ireland at the same time you scheduled this.

    I LOVE Lake Tahoe & will think about you guys (well, maybe, you know, being in Ireland & all!)

    (and April will never work for me due to work commitments…..)

  18. Just curious…when adding a second event, why not a different part of the country? There’s already one in CA, so why not throw the East Coasters a bone? (no pun intended) That would make it more accessible for folks in Europe/UK too.

  20. I know i’m not the only one crying out for PrimalCon UK!! Incredibly incredibly tempted by this, but at over £1000 for me to attend for just a few days when i’ll already be in the States in May, it’s looking a bit steep (pun intended!)

    Please please do Lake Tahoe again in 2014! (And come to the sunny UK, of course.)

    • I’m from Ireland so would love there to be a Primal Con near here but I’m seriously thinking of packing my bags and going to lake Tahoe and make it a two week trip. Sounds like heaven!!! Thank you Mark!! Ali Nutritional Therapist Cork Ireland

      • When something feels so right you must take action. Just registered for PrimalCon September 2013. It’s my birthday in September, best present ever :-)

        • Yes, I agree, as soon as I got this email announcing the Tahoe PrimalCon, it felt right and I talked my husband into going as a September birthday gift for me and a boost to our primal lifestyle. Can’t wait to meet and mingle with like-minded people, eat awesome food, and enjoy the beauty of Tahoe! :)

  21. I toyed with the idea of buying a ticket to the April 13 PrimalCon but chickened out as I am still new to the Primal lifestyle. After I saw a second PrimalCon was happening later in the year it didn’t take me long to convince myself that it was an awesome idea.
    It’ll be my first trip to the States from Australia and I’m hoping to come away with a wealth of knowledge in Primal living. :D

  22. Well, it sounds great & I would love to hear Robb but I cannot afford this. It’s close too I live just 4 hours from Tahoe. But DH would have a cow.

    But the Primal/Paleo way is helping me beat diabetes and I love this program. :)

  23. That sounds great, BUT its too far away for me…Can you do the next one in Sydney, Australia???????? (“,)

  24. I live in Reno — will there be any day pass options? Would love to see some speakers and grab some primal grub!

  25. What a fantastic idea! The only thing better than an annual PrimalCon is a semi-annual PrimalCon. And what an amazing line-up of presenters.

    I’m sure this one will sell out soon, but hopefully not before I get my own tickets!

    • It’s sold out already. :-( Wonder how many people are on the waitlist.
