Event Description



This Girls Cross Country Camp is led by the Ankeny Centennial Cross Country Coaching Staff.
The 8th Grade Camp is Open to ANY and ALL Students Enrolled at Northview MS.
The 9th-12th Grade Camp is Open to ANY and ALL Students Enrolled in Ankeny Centennial HS.


ACHS girls cross country offers a summer long training camp for Jaguar girls entering grades 7-12. The Centennial staff will utilize several running workouts as well as teach the purpose each has within our training program. The staff will also incorporate a strength and mobility program to assist in injury prevention and to improve flexibility. Truly get a leg up on the competition!

Coach Cogdill makes an effort to get to know each runner. That feedback allows for each runner to have a training plan that is adjusted to their history, ability, interest, fatigue, age, and readiness demonstrated in prior weeks. Workouts will utilize a GPS watch, which Coach Cogdill can supply as needed. The watch provides important feedback on time, distance, and pace.

Each running route is pre-planned for safety and water will be provided along the route. Treats and team-building activities will occur often to keep training fun and to create a community of runners. There will be Saturday destination runs to locations or nature trails that offer terrains and surfaces not available near the school.  

The camp offers four evenings (Sun – Wed) and four mornings (Wed – Sat) per week. Sessions primarily meet at Ankeny Centennial High School, door E40. Of the 8 runs per week, experienced runners should attend 6-7 sessions weekly. New or less experienced runners should aim to attend 3-5 sessions each week. No one is turned away due to inability to attend often.

The first run is Monday, June 10th @ ACHS (door E40) at 7:30PM. Campers attending at least 20 sessions will receive a Jaguar XC camp shirt. Campers attending 40+ sessions will receive a camp shirt + a bonus item to be determined by athletes. Over 70 total sessions available. Full calendar will be e-mailed and handed out to those who sign-up as well as posted online.
