    XC SUCCESS! I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the program you put together this past summer, not only for the coaches, but also for the kids. You've helped create a program that really works to teach and empower all its participants! As for our results this season. We won the Maine Independent School Championship and went on to win New England's (NEPSTA Division IV) for the 2nd time in four years (we've podiumed all four and this book-ended championships for my seniors). Thanks in part to your help and teaching over the summer, all our runners peaked perfectly and we had great performances from top to bottom! My runners placed 3, 20, 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35 out of a field of more than 200 with 37 schools being represented (the kids were ready and ran a great strategic race). On our girl's side, we placed 3 runners in the top 20! The success continued all the way down the JV roster as well. Adam L. Coaches Workshop

    In GMRC you become a smarter runner, you learn about yourself, you improve your running skills, you always want to know more! And the most important thing, you have a incredible time with other people who loves running as much as you do. I loved everything!

    Green Mountain was the best week of my summer. The staff members are incredibly knowledgeable about running, hilarious, and friendly. Everyone there was so welcoming, campers and counselors alike. The runs were always in a beautiful setting and paced just right-I pushed myself and definitely grew as a runner, (especially on that lake run!) but it wasn't so fast that I couldn't keep up. Also, I really enjoyed the vast variety of delicious food at the dining hall. There wasn't a moment I didn't love at Green Mountain Running Camp and I will never be able to say enough positive things about my experience. If you're considering this camp, I more than highly recommend it. Like me, you'll be thankful you went.

    As a serious runner, both years I have gone it has been the best week of my life. You get to be around fun people and really can do whatever you want; it's a completely judgment free camp, it doesn't matter how fast you are. Everything is fun and it is the most beautiful scenery I can imagine, from the morning runs to the breakouts to the afternoon runs and guest speakers there is never anything that I don't look forward to and enjoy.

    This was my first overnight camp and my first time away from home for an extended period on my own. I was nervous beforehand, but loved every minute of the camp. The speakers and their testimonies were inspiring, the running was challenging and motivating and the recreational time was fun and memorable. In fact, when I returned home I felt a void and missed the camp and my friends so much. It took me a few days to get back to reality. I can't wait to return next year.

    The GMRC provides a great place for training and also has a good staff to educate and make it a really fun environment to make you just love and appreciate the sport. My favorite soak was at the lake. It was big and a great way to end the run, not to mention the view was beautiful. I am motivated for running and look forward to making an impact on my XC team.

    It is good at incorporating everything that has to do with running. We run, hear from guest speakers, learn about running, and just get fully immersed in the culture of running. I found the week motivating, with great instruction & instructors- some former Olympians!. Camp got me really pumped up for the season, gave me lots of self confidence. Beautiful runs and fun creek soaks!

    I had a great time, met new people who I still talk to today, and feel so much more experienced and comfortable going into a new cross country program! They focus on all aspects of running. You don't just go to camp and run, you learn proper technique and all that goes along with the sport. Green Mountain Running Camp provides focus on the little things that can improve performance. Camp was a great experience! GO!

    We do a lot of learning, a lot of running, and have a lot of fun, and somehow the camp manages to bring all three of those elements together for a very productive and fun week. Parents, if your son or daughter is serious about being the best runner that he or she can possibly be, this camp is IT! Every bit of this camp is worth the price..

    Green Mountain Running Camp was definitely the highlight of my summer, and if you are a serious runner you SHOULD come to this camp. You'll not only learn and understand so much more about the sport of running, but you'll also learn and understand more about yourself as a person and find your TRUE identity. It's also very fun and you meet so many friendly and great new people that share the same passion for running as much as you do.
