Cross Country Running Camp - Grades 9-12


July 20-22, 2018

Our goal is to provide athletes the knowledge and understanding of distance running in a fun and motivational atmosphere in order to prepare athletes to have success in future seasons. Train with runners from around the Midwest, learn from collegiate coaches on practical and technical aspects of the sport, and run with collegiate athletes that have experienced top levels of training and racing. Lecture topics will cover proper goal setting, successful mindsets, and training theory, along with a Q&A session with current coaches and student-athletes.
