The focus for camp is training and is recommended for motivated runners. All abilities are welcome; the only requirement is the desire to be better. Athletes should prepare for training and have run in the weeks prior to arrival. Besides training, athletes will be instructed by collegiate coaches, health professionals, and top athletes on motivation, nutrition, biomechanics, weights and circuit training, goal setting, injury prevention, & sports psychology.

Housing and Dining
Campers will be housed in an on-campus residence dorm located close to training facilities. All campers will eat, sleep, and live in the same manner as Tech student-athletes. Everyone will be housed in a Virginia Tech dormitory. On campus dining facilities will feed our campers and are only a short walk from the dorms and athletic fields. Meals are all-you-can-eat and each meal has a large variety of foods to choose from. VT Dining facilities have been ranked #1 in the nation for college campuses.
Training will be based on individual experience. Our goal is a motivating and meaningful camp without injuries or over training. Camp will include two-a- day runs, optional pool workout, circuits, plyometrics and daily strength training. Runs will be over the VT Cross Country course, Jefferson National Forest, and surrounding VT trails. There will be free time to rest, play volleyball, ultimate, or just talk to new friends. Plus group activities like river tubing and hikes into the Cascades.
Girls and boys entering grades 8-12, and also graduated high school seniors. Camp is NOT a VT camp. Middle school age campers can come if they have a good training base. Campers will be grouped according to grade level and current fitness level.
