ADVENTURE IMMERSION LAB
Who We Are
Adventure Immersion Lab Ltd is a Kelowna based Adventure company. Our C.E.O. , Nathalie Long, is a well accomplished Adventure Racer and Ultra Runner.
Nathalie started Adventure Racing in 2009 and has participated in a multitude of races from a few hours long to 9,5 days non stop. She has competed in 20 Expedition Races to date (3 days and over) finishing ranked in Full Course in 19 of them. She is passionate about the sport and created, race designed and race directed the first 3 Expedition Canada Races that were put in the Okanagan. Adventure Racing led Nathalie into ultra running in 2017 and she has been competing and placing in a few 120 and 160km races in France and the US and has participated and finished in the first third of the field in UTMB in 2018, 2021 and 2022.
Since moving to the Okanagan in 2017, Nathalie has been growing the adventure racing community in the area. In her spare time and for her training, she has found herself spending a lot of times in the Rockies, exploring the mountains in Banff National park, Yoho National Park, Kananaskis area and the Kootenays National Park. She has hiked and ran a large variety of trails, each more amazing than the another.
Her desire to create her own company has been growing for years and finally early in 2023, she decided to take the leap, finishing her certifications and starting her own company. In June 2023, Adventure Immersion Lab was born.
Adventure Immersion Lab offers a range of services, from Tailored Hiking and Trail Running guided retreats (coed and women only) to Adventure Racing and Ultra Running Coaching.
We are also involved in different events as Race course designers, Race directors and are now also offering our own events for 2024.
