POINTERS MIDDLE DISTANCE & DISTANCE RUNNING CAMP

Our goal at these camps is to make you aware of the many different ways and means to help you become a better runner. The camps feature guest coaches from the high school and college ranks who will discuss topics including psychology, diet, tactics, goal setting, weight training, warm-up, cool-down, and many other aspects of Middle Distance/Distance training. The Grades 7-12 Camp covers events from the 800m through Cross Country. We also plan to give you as much training as you are capable of handling to have you ready for the start of the 2019 cross country season.

The camps will also allow you to find out first hand how training ideas, racing areas, and general running philosophy differ in other areas of the U.S. and some foreign countries.
