At Running Camp, plan on running!
Workouts may include hill repeats, long run, some strength training and core exercises. We will run on gravel roads, trails, and paved roads. Most runs will be time based to accommodate all fitness levels. Some teaching on nutrition and recovery, injury prevention, and race strategy. Plan on running 15+ miles at this session.
As a part of Activities Camp, designed for 5th-8th graders, campers will spend time training with their registered activity and then come together with the other groups for meals, worship, and teaching.
