Wilderness Running Camp
ages 14- 17
July 7-13, 2019
Cost: $500 In State & $700 Out of State
Explore the wild and wonderful forests of West Virginia’s best hidden gem; the Seneca Creek Backcountry. Campers will discover this wild land by running on (and off!) trails, exploring its caves, swimming in cascading waterfalls and base-camping in a central location to access all of it on foot. Our guest coaches Eric Grossman and Robin Oxnard Grossman (read all about them here) will accompany the group and will lend their expertise on conditioning and running techniques, and what keeps them inspired to run year after year. Campers will immerse themselves in team-building initiatives and awareness activities through various running based excursions. Join us for one of the most unique running camps on the east coast!
This camp is focused on general early-season conditioning, with mileage/effort level adjustable for different participants. This camp is also appropriate for athletes in soccer, lacrosse, mountain biking, or other endurance-based sports. If you can comfortably complete a 4-6 mile run you will be able to handle this camp.
Our running camp is made possible by a partnerships with the West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners and Ultimate Direction. WVMTR helps provide expert running coaches and Ultimate Direction provides specialized hydration gear for each camper.
What I think is so valuable about what is offered here is it is not only trail running help, but the wilderness piece: orienteering, first aid, map reading, and leadership stuff. – 2018 camper
I liked backpacking camp but I love running camp so much more. Because I like being out in the woods and running is one of my favorite things and getting to do it out there with a bunch of other high schoolers is great! – 2018 camper
