Overview

Emphasizes base mileage and strength training, with many runs on forest trails. Daily lectures include topics such as cross training, core strengthening, warm-ups, and race tactics.

The Maine Cross Country Running Camp is a balanced week of intense training, core mileage, information sessions, and proper recovery, stretching and injury-prevention drills. The camp stresses the character-building aspect of running, bolstering runners' spirits of self-reliance and work ethic. We see distance running as a way of life that can help campers achieve healthy bodies, tough minds, and lifelong friendships in addition to important achievements and trophies. The camp will emphasize base mileage and strength workouts for summer training. Most of the miles will be run on the soft surfaces of forest trails. Campers include runners of all abilities from all-star high school runners to runners who are just getting started in the sport. We have seven different levels of training groups available during every session. Runners will also have the option of participating in a hill workout and a tempo run during the week. Daily lectures from current college runners will include topics such as cross training, core strengthening, warming up for races, and race tactics. Cross-training options will include jump rope, medicine ball drills, swimming, kayaking, core exercises, splitting wood with an axe, volleyball, and swimming 400m to an island in the lake (optional and must pass a swim test first). Camp staff members will also teach campers how to run in the water.
