OPEN EVENT IN NEW WINDOW

Description

Washington Track Camps LLC is proud to continue our annual Cross Country Camp in 2018. Our campers will stay on the beautiful University of Washington campus, and train with Washington's coaching staff and student-athletes. Campers will get an inside look at one of the premier distance programs in the country. We will explore the fantastic training venues Seattle and the surrounding communities have to offer. Washington Track Camp's mission is to provide a first-class and fun training experience, exposing campers to all the University of Washington and Seattle has to offer. We will provide learning experiences for all levels of cross country athletes. In addition to exceptional training instruction campers will experience exciting presentations from some of the U.S.'s top athletes and will have a jam-packed four days of distance running that will prepare them for success in their upcoming seasons and careers.

 

The Washington Cross Country camp is open to any and all male and female athletes entering the 8th - 12th grades and is designed as an overnight camp. Day campers are welcome at a discounted rate, and will attend camp from 9:00am - 5:00pm daily. Our camp is not intended to be a "boot camp" and we will tailor each training session to the ability of the athletes. We encourage athletes of all abilities to attend, and will make sure each individual is challenged, but not over-trained. We will have one significant training-run in the morning and other supplementary running activities in the afternoon. Our hope is that the athletes will get a nice jump on their summer training, and leave motivated and excited for the remainder of their summer training season. Despite being in the center of a major city, Seattle has plenty of fantastic places to run. The majority of our training will be on dirt trails in the surrounding communities.
