Wilderness Running Camp

July 5 – 10, 2020
Cost: $550 In State & $750 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 (to be announced soon) 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. To have success on this program, campers should be able to comfortably complete a 4-6 mile run.
Our running camp is made possible by a partnerships with the West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners, Genesis Running and Ultimate Direction. WVMTR helps provide expert running coaches, Genesis Running helps to provide camper scholarships 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
