You’re going to have fun and make new friendships while getting some one-on-one advice from experienced coaches and athletes! Everyday, a guest Olympian or record holder will stop by to tell you their story, answer your questions, and even run the trails with you! On top of that, you’ll learn about training, keeping a running journal, injury prevention, mental toughness, and some other tips that will give you that edge. You’ll leave with a plan that will see you through the season, as well as access to your camp coach through emails and phone calls until the end of cross-country season!

Register here and read on for what to expect.
