The nation’s premier high school running camp
For 18 years the Boulder Running Camps has offered high school runners the chance to run on trails in and around Boulder, a mecca for endurance athletes. Combine this with our focus on education, including presentations on exercise physiology and training theory, as well as “learn by doing” opportunities, the camp is a special opportunity for passionate runners who are dying to improve.
The Boulder Running Camps is many things, but simply put, it’s the most fun a serious runner can have over the course of five days. Campers gain a greater knowledge of the right training, learning to run smarter, so that they are able to run to their potential in the upcoming season.
Each day of camp is different, but every day is fun. Every day of camp includes a run, a presentation by coach Jay Johnson, meals at the new campus dining hall or a restaurant around Boulder, "learn by doing" sessions, and other running-related activities. The Camp Olympics include a scavenger hunt and skit night and are the only competitions during camp. The hikes up either Green Mountain or Flagstaff Mountain give campers a view of the snowcapped Continental Divide.
Nike has sponsored the Boulder Running Camps for 18 years. Thanks to a generous deal with Nike, each camper will receive an exclusive Nike Dri-Fit camp t-shirt and a pair of Nike Pegasus 37 training shoes ($120 retail). There are many reasons to come to camp, not the least of which is getting a great pair of shoes for the cross country season.
