Welcome to Nuun Dirt School PH!

Dirt School PH is a community of endurance athletes- runners, triathletes, mountaineers who are bound by trail love and our common desire to let more people experience and be moved by the great outdoors.

The group is led by Miguel “Ige” Lopez, a seasoned mountaineer, endurance athlete, and multisport coach. His love for the great outdoors has brought him to various local and international races, including the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc- a 170km foot race that covers 3 countries. Ige is also a Level 2 Certified Coach by the International Triathlon Union (ITU).

In partnership with Nuun Hydration, a company that shares their commitment to promote environmental awareness and sustainability, Dirt School PH offers a progressive trail running camp series that caters to enthusiasts of varying skill level. Each camp has two parts- a classroom lecture for theoretical discussions and an actual trail run to demonstrate and practice techniques. Nuun Dirt School PH has conducted trail running camps in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Dirt School PH, now on its 3rd year, is offering an updated curriculum and new classes to further its goal of developing skilled and responsible mountain endurance athletes.
