Wide Open Cross Country Camp

The North Carolina July 2018 Wide Open Cross Country Camp session is five day four night camp located on the scenic campus of Montreat College, less than thirty minutes from Asheville, NC. Our North Carolina camp is open to high school and middle school athletes. Both individual runners and full cross country teams are encouraged to attend. With a week of great training on over 90 acres of groomed trails, our North Carolina cross country camp session can provide athletes a motivating bookend to their summer training just before their team practices begin.

Lodging for the North Carolina July session of Wide Open Cross Country Camp is limited. Rooms will be awarded on a first come first serve basis. Rooms will be considered reserved with a $100 deposit and the camper forms filled out.

Running Camp Specifics

Typical camp days include morning and evening running sessions as well as midday learning sessions on sprint mechanics or running form and core strength. While every camper will get in a good week of training, our goal is not to wear athletes out nor have them prove how many miles they can run in a week. We communicate with individual athletes and coaches to make sure athletes are running an appropriate number of miles according to their fitness level, age, and previous summer training.

Our days also have plenty of scheduled downtime for athletes to rest, recover, and have fun. During downtime throughout the week athletes will be treated to guest speakers and lecturers ranging from running shoe specialists to college cross country coaches. Additionally, every evening at camp athletes will be able to spend time with their own coaches to discuss goals and the upcoming cross country season. For athletes who come without their coach, our counselors will lead discussions about goal setting and improving as a runner.
