Summer Run Camp 2018 – Join Us

We’ll be in beautiful Keystone, CO! This camp will put athletes in a true training focused environment with no distractions (yes, that means they give up there phones for the week). The goal is to reconnect with themselves and develop a connecting with their team, their coaches, and most importantly – themselves.

This is an opportunity for athletes to hone skills, build a big base with a focus on the fall Cross Country Season, or just have a big week of training  as they prep for events in the summer. We will have fun speakers and events to keep with a camp feel but the biggest boost will be form the runs at altitude.

Athletes run at least once a day with most days having a run and a second component of running, strength or yoga. The skills built here will teach them about how to recover after a hard session and what they need to do to refuel, reflect, and rebuild. Athletes will train at 9300′ ft on the trails surrounding Keystone, CO.

Athletes are given highly nutritious meals and always looking at food as fuel. Athletes who are considering camp should be able to run 4x/ week for at least 40 minutes in a stretch. If you are coming from altitude please reach out!

We look forward to having you!

Transitioning to Trail Running

Track and Cross Country are often the two dynamics of the sport high schoolers are familiar with and if they come from a running family they might be more familiar with marathons and half marathons. There has been a move towards trails that has started to trickle down with new events popping up that offer both an individual and team dynamic. Athletes can compete individually or score team points just like they’re accustomed to in cross country.

Cross Country in the Time of COVID

As time wore on, it wasn’t just the events we’d lose, it was our sense of normalcy. How we interacted, how we greeted each other, how we hyped each other up, how we congratulated each other. It was like a light switch, from that day forward – we had to operate differently because fo COVID.
