  • Maddy price

    Guest Speaker (2023) Maddy Price (Olympian)

    Maddy Price’s Olympic dream became a reality in Tokyo, 2021. Her road to Tokyo was filled with uncertainty as she dealt with coming back from foot surgery, the global pandemic and more. Despite the odds, she made the Canadian Olympic Team in the Women’s 4x400m Relay, where she ran the second leg and helped lead the team to a 4th place finish, just narrowly missing the podium by six-tenths of a second. Far more important than the accomplishment of becoming an Olympian is how she approached the process... with a gritty and “day by day” attitude. Get excited for Maddy's talk as she shares about her Olympic experience and the growth and lessons learned from detours along her road to the world's biggest athletic stage.

How many miles will we run each day?

High School athletes will run twice a day. Once in the morning at the North Carolina Arboretum trails and once in the afternoon at the UNC Asheville track. The morning run is more of a distance run and the afternoon track session is an opportunity to work on specific training paces. Actual distances vary based on runners mileage and ability.


Middle School athletes run once or twice per day, depending on their training background, using the same locations and facilities as High School athletes. Normally, MS athletes run twice a day every other day, but staff monitor MS running volume based on current training and camper running experience/background.
