Camp Director Jason Vigilante
A five-time Ivy League Coach of the Year, Coach Vigilante is in his 10th season at Princeton University, where he has led the Tigers to six Ivy League Cross Country Championships and two Triple Crowns. Prior to joining Princeton, Vigilante was the director of cross country and track and field at the University of Virginia, where he was a two-time ACC Coach of the Year, winning ACC Championships in both cross country and outdoor track and field.View Jason's Bio ⟩
Coach Vigilante also spent nine years at the University of Texas, coaching multiple student-athletes to NCAA and Big 12 titles, and setting an Indoor World Record in the distance medley relay (DMR) in 2008. Jason started his coaching career as an assistant coach at UNC Wilmington, and served as a graduate assistant for two seasons at NC State.
“Returning to Green Mountain Running Camp [GMRC] has brought me full circle in our sport,” says Vigilante. “I began running as a Green Mountain camper in 1987. The foundation I gained paved the path to my college education, my career, and fostered my love of running. I’m honored to return to GMRC as the camp director and I hope to pass along this wonderful experience.”
A native of Morristown, N.J., Coach Vigilante is no stranger to Green Mountain Running Camp, having spent four summers at GRMC as a camper before heading off to NC State, where he lettered three times with the Wolfpack and earned All-ACC honors in Cross Country.
Associate Director Brad Hunt
Coach Hunt is in his sixth season at Princeton University, where he has led the women’s cross country team to an Ivy League individual title and a top three team finish. Prior to joining Princeton, Hunt was the assistant coach for cross country and track at Wake Forest, where he had 19 student-athletes earn All-ACC honors and his cross country teams earned consecutive Dean’s Cups (’14, ’15, and ’16).View Brad's Bio ⟩
Coach Hunt was also the assistant cross country and track coach at Virginia (’05 - ’10), working alongside GMRC Director and Princeton men’s cross country coach Jason Vigilante, winning three ACC Men’s XC titles, and qualifying his women’s team to four NCAA Championship appearances.
“I am thrilled to join the historic Green Mountain Running Camp,” says Hunt. “The outstanding location in the heart of the Northeast, combined with the remarkable support of Nike Running Camps, allows GMRC to be the best end of the summer running experience for teams and individuals alike.”
Hunt started his coaching career at his alma mater Kent State (’97), graduating as a two-time Academic All-American and captain of both the cross country and track and field teams. During his five years at Kent State, Hunt coached eight individual MAC Champions.

He was part of the team that won the championship
My daughter, Maddie Gump, had an AMAZING experience at SMRC!! She loved her counselors and made a lot of new friends! She also ran extremely well and won Queen of the Hill on the last day. She said she felt great, supported, and confident. Thank you! You exceeded our expectations!!
— Parent of Attendee from This Camp in 2022
Never a moment I didn't love
Green Mountain was the best week of my summer. The staff members are incredibly knowledgeable about running, hilarious, and friendly. Everyone there was so welcoming, campers and counselors alike. The runs were always in a beautiful setting and paced just right-I pushed myself and definitely grew as a runner, (especially on that lake run!) but it wasn't so fast that I couldn't keep up. Also, I really enjoyed the vast variety of delicious food at the dining hall. There wasn't a moment I didn't love at Green Mountain Running Camp and I will never be able to say enough positive things about my experience. If you're considering this camp, I more than highly recommend it. Like me, you'll be thankful you went.
— Alicia K., Camper 2014
Green Mountain Running Camp was definitely the highlight of my summer, and if you are a serious runner you SHOULD come to this camp. You'll not only learn and understand so much more about the sport of running, but you'll also learn and understand more about yourself as a person and find your TRUE identity. It's also very fun and you meet so many friendly and great new people that share the same passion for running as much as you do.
— Thomas G., Camper 2014
Every bit is worth the price
We do a lot of learning, a lot of running, and have a lot of fun, and somehow the camp manages to bring all three of those elements together for a very productive and fun week. Parents, if your son or daughter is serious about being the best runner that he or she can possibly be, this camp is IT! Every bit of this camp is worth the price..
— Matthew Q., Camper 2014
Great! I had a great time, met new people who I'm still talking to, and feel so much more experienced and safe going into a new cross country program! They focus on all aspects of running. You don't just go to camp and run, you learn the technique and all that goes with the sport. The GMRC provides focus on the little things that can improve performance. Camp was a great experience! GO!
— Tammy T., Camper 2014
It is good at incorporating everything to do with running. We run, hear from guest speakers, learn about running, and just get fully immersed in the culture of running. I found the week motivating, with great instruction & instructors- some former Olympians!. Camp got me really pumped up for the season, gave me lots of self confidence. Beautiful runs and fun creek soaks!
— Ryan L., Camper 2014
Challenging and motivating
This was my first overnight camp and my first time away from home for an extended period on my own. I was nervous beforehand, but loved every minute of the camp. The speakers and their testimonies were inspiring, the running was challenging and motivating and the recreational time was fun and memorable. In fact, when I returned home I felt a void and missed the camp and my friends so much. It took me a few days to get back to reality. I can't wait to return next year.
— Deedee A., Camper 2013
Most beautiful scenery
As a serious runner, both years I have gone it has been the best week of my life. You get to be around fun people and really can do whatever you want; it's a completely judgment free camp, it doesn't matter how fast you are. Everything is fun and it is the most beautiful scenery I can imagine, from the morning runs to the breakouts to the afternoon runs and guest speakers there is never anything that I don't look forward to and enjoy.
— Nolan G., Camper 2013
Like a family
Nike Running Camp is a new experience, when you get there everyone is like a family to you. The counselors are so welcoming and are hilarious. Going to camp gives you a new adventure and a new part of running that you can imagine. Creek soaks are great and especially the Lake Run. The breakout sessions aren't boring, you learn so much more about running. I advise you to go the Nike Running camp because it's something you don't want to miss out on.
— Emma T., Camper 2013
My team and I have been coming up to camp for a few years, and we're always so excited to be there. Everyone at camp really knows what they're talking about and it's just a great atmosphere to be in - it gets me physically and mentally ready for the rest of the season.
— Mary B., Camper 2013
Can't wait until next year
At Green Mountain Running Camp, I learned to push the limits of my running ability. This camp surrounds you with friendly staff and fellow runners. I was unsure of going, being as this would be my first overnight camp and it was so far away from everything I was used to. I must say, I felt so welcomed by the smiling faces everywhere! The instructors were friendly and patient, and I was happy with my experience with my running group! The camp also had great activities. I enjoyed playing soccer and volleyball with my new friends, plus the activities that you could just watch with fellow campers. All in all, I had a great experience at camp and can't wait until next year! I would highly recommend this camp to any runner. There is something for everyone, and there are many opportunities: both for running and for finding new friends!
— Sheryl Y., Camper 2013
Experience like no other
Green Mountain Running Camp is the best camp that I have ever gone to. Most of my friends think it is boring to just run but the experience at this camp is like no other. There are great activities and things like the lip singing contest and the talent show to entertain you. I feel like it was a taste of being on my own and a taste of the college life.
— Laura L., Camper 2012
Highlight of my summer
Green Mountain Running Camp is a great camp that really helps prepare runners for their upcoming cross country and track seasons. It is located in a beautiful area with wonderful trails that offer a challenge for runners of all skill levels. The counselors and junior counselors all come from very impressive running backgrounds, and answer any and all questions with much expertise. Going into GMRC, I had not run very much, and didn't appreciate the sport as much as I do now. Green Mountain Running Camp really inspired me to train harder, run longer, and have fun while doing so. I am very glad that I went to Green Mountain Running Camp, and recommend it to any 14-18 year old runner; regardless of their skill level. GMRC was one of the highlights of my summer, and I really hope to return next year.
— Sean H., Camper 2012
Makes running fun
I attended the Green Mountain running camp for 3 years and they were the best camp experiences of my life. I feel I have become a much better runner as a result. Everyday was filled with fun activities while still getting in your training. The camp just makes running fun.
— Jack U., Camper 2012
Common love for running
I honestly think GMRC was the best week of my life so far. The information they teach there will help you in ways you didn't even know you needed help. Not to mention the staff is hilarious and fun. GMRC is the perfect atmosphere to train, learn, and have fun while you are surrounded by teammates, friends, coaches and counselors all with a common love of running.
— Brie A., Camper 2012
Would definitely go back
Green Mountain Running Camp was a very fun camp for teammates to bond before the season begins and was a great workout! The runs were very fun especially the creek soaks! I became closer friends with my teammates (seeing as I am a lot younger then them) and I became friends with everyone in my dorm! They were all very nice people and green mountain was such a great social activity and I would definitely go back! The runs were very enjoyable and a great workout! I am in better shape then I was before coming to this camp!
— Tim E., Camper 2011
Everyone shared a passion for running
This camp is for runners of all levels - beginners to elite. Be ready to run this is not a "get in shape camp" The break out sessions provide a great variety different techniques you can apply to your running. I learned a lot on how to improve my form and race technique. It was nice to be in a place where everyone shared the passion of running - that made it easy to make friends. Looking forward to next year!
— Lindsey L., Camper 2011
Helped me mentally prepare for races
GMRC was one of the highlights of my summer. It was not as intimidating as I thought it would be-the staff really knows what they are doing, and how to work with runners of all levels. I also learned a lot in the breakout session such as how to best run up hills and how to mentally prepare for races. I would highly recomend GMRC to anybody planning to run XC.
— Shauna M., Camper 2011
Green Mountain Running Camp is my favorite camp I have ever been to. Being around so many people that all love running made the experience so cool. This camp helped me become a much more efficient runner than I was before it. The speakers and counselors were so informative and taught me a lot of helpful things that I will always keep in mind during my running career. Not only did I become a better runner from GMRC, I also made a lot of new friends that made everything even more fun!
— Elaine P., Camper 2011
This camp is absolutely amazing. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their running and who wants to meet other runners who can inspire them to work harder and love the sport even more.
— Josh Z., Camper 2011
From Camper: Thank you for a great week! I really enjoyed the video contest, really hope you continue that. From Mom: Thank you for having Eloise check in with the trainer when we checked in. Eloise had recently been sick, and speaking with Rachel was very reassuring for both of us.
— Eloise and Emily, Camper and Parent 2017

— Grace O. Camper
She learned a lot about injury prevention
August 12, 2018: She loved the options for the break out sessions, enjoyed the variety of runs and workouts, loved all the food, and felt she had just enough downtime. She LOVED this camp. She won the talent show and the camp gave her so much free swag she was so excited. She learned a lot about injury prevention so she can listen to her body and know when to back off. She loved the variety of the workouts and the ways the camp made it fun. She would definitely attend next year.
— Jeff T. Parent
Great, great coaches
August 30, 2018: Storrs Pond run, fun games & activities were all great. He loved it and gained dorm life experience as an added bonus to all the running & great, great coaches!
— Trish B. Parent
We'll be back
August 5, 2018: My child loved meeting new people who shared a passion for running, running on challenging and demanding terrain with more hills, learning about all the different things you can do to become a better runner, getting motivated for the season, hearing other people's experiences, and more. The food and night activities were also highlights.
— Liz, T. Parent
Keep doing what you're doing.
August 4, 2018: It helped my son not only become a smarter runner, but a confident person.This camp helped my son become a more social individual .First thing that came out of his mouth was,"can i please go back next year."
— Pete H. Parent
The recreational activities were extremely enjoyable each night. The junior counselors were very kind and helpful, as well as the experienced coaches. Meals were very good. Breakouts were very interesting.
— Dan W., Parent 2017
Well Organized and Informational
The camp was overall very well organized and the information discussed was all insightful. The kids and coaches were all great and it was great to make some new friends.
— Sarah M., Camper 2017
August 6, 2022: I really enjoyed how wonderful the coaches and counselors were. The hills really made my legs stronger. They gave me plenty of time to run the distance I wanted. Also they taught the proper form of dynamic exercises which I had no idea I was doing wrong. Also the scavenger hunt was a lot of fun. It was a great experience.
Overall it was a very positive experience, and that she wants to return next summer really says it all! Thank you for making it such a good experience.
— Maria M., Parent 2017
I love this camp
I loved getting to the camp and realizing that everyone around me loved running as much as I do. The exciting and peppy environment made even getting up early for a pre-breakfast run enjoyable!! I also liked our night activities like the scavenger hunt, relays, and, of course, Nike Prom! The entire staff was amazing and I really appreciated all of their never-ending knowledge and enthusiasm, and the amazing food topped it all off!!
— Emily W., Camper 2017
I believe that what my daughter enjoyed the most was being around people who loved running! That positive feeling has carried over into her high school XC season. The motivational speakers and stories, break out sessions, etc., she really enjoyed and were very helpful. Liked meeting new people, runners and coaches alike - she is ready to go back next summer.
— Maria M., Parent 2017
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the program you put together this past summer, not only for the coaches, but also for the kids. You've helped create a program that really works to teach and empower all its participants! As for our results this season. We won the Maine Independent School Championship and went on to win New England's (NEPSTA Division IV) for the 2nd time in four years (we've podiumed all four and this bookended championships for my seniors). Thanks in part to your help and teaching over the summer, all our runners peaked perfectly and we had great performances from top to bottom! My runners placed 3, 20, 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 out of a field of more than 200 with 37 schools being represented (the kids were ready and ran a great strategic race). On our girl's side, we placed 3 runners in the top 20! The success continued all the way down the JV roster as well.
— Adam L., Coach at Coaches Workshop
I would highly recommend Green Mountain Running Camp. With its beautiful setting, competent staff, high level of instruction, and balance of work and fun, it was a perfect camp for both of my boys. They are looking forward to doing it again next summer and staying longer!
— Jan E. Parent 2015
Green Mountain Running Camp was an exceptional experience. You are able to connect with runners from all around the country and globe while running through the strenuous yet beautiful scenery of New Hampshire. I highly recommend this camp for anyone looking to become a stronger and smarter runner. The speakers and breakouts I thought gave excellent insight to every aspect of running that I will be able to use and interpret throughout my running career. At Green Mountain Running Camp everyone really does smile for miles. I look forward to coming back to the camp next year in hopes for another wonderful running experience.
— Paul O., Camper 2015
Great experience for camper coming by themselves
I came to camp with a little bit of apprehensiveness and nervousness. I knew I wasn't going to be the best runner at camp. My only experience running competitively was during 5th and 6th grade in middle school. I also knew that I am someone who does not say much in social settings, so I was nervous about finding kids to hang out with that I had never met before. However, after the first few hours at camp, these fears vanished. I met a lot of awesome people, counselors and campers alike. I felt immediately welcomed into the "Nike family," (what everyone began referring to the entirety of the camp as). I was put in a group with about 10 other campers who all ran similar times. We were able to challenge each other in a healthy and fun setting throughout the whole week. I also felt embraced by a group of four other boys, and we all became tightly knit over the course of the week. I loved my experience so much, I plan on signing up for two weeks next summer.
— Amanda G., Camper 2015
My favorite Breakout session was the Olympic experience with Andy Wheating. I always wonder what it was like to compete in the Olympics. He showed that it was amazing and he enjoyed every second of it. I hope I can compete in the Olympics to one day
— Austin W., Camper 2015
Fun extra activites
This was my third year at camp and the recreational activities this year were by far the best out of all my trips. They were super fun to watch and to participate in. They were extremely funny and entertaining.
— Oren M., Camper 2015
