Runners participate in two running workouts each day. Coaches explain the benefits of workouts and how they combine to help you maximize your potential. The workouts do not take the place of your high school or club program. Instead, they raise your awareness about becoming a “complete runner.” In addition, you’ll learn race strategies, warm-up and warm-down routines, technique drills, strength training, and plyometrics. You’ll train in beautiful environment, motivated by coaches and college runners who share your passion.
We offer educational and motivational running clinics each day. Campers learn the fundamentals of distance training, including proper nutrition, visualization, goal setting, race techniques, flexibility, and recovery. NCAA coaches discuss what it takes to put together championship teams and how you can use these ideas to improve your team back home.
