Myers’ Running Camp is a camp for mid-distance and distance runners. Started by Rob Myers, 2 time USA Indoor 1500 meter Champion, and 2 time World Track and Field Team member. Our mission is to help young athletes involved in track & field and cross country improve their technique and overall training performance. Over the years, we have had the unique opportunity to be involved in these sports at all levels, high school through international, as both athletes and coaches. Now, we would like to share our experiences and assist other aspiring athletes on their athletic journeys.

Our mission will be accomplished through a “learning and training” approach to running. Campers will be introduced to various training methods and drills used by elite athletes and then have the opportunity to practice those techniques alongside high school, college, and elite athletes.

Have the opportunity to run the trails at the Geneva Hills campground outside of Lancaster, Ohio with other campers and counselors. You also will be given instruction and the chance to participate in drills and exercises to improve and supplement your training. We will also have a ton of fun at the campground, activities include: pool, volleyball, lake, hiking, kickball, and much more.

Our campers will also have the opportunity to hear speakers from the various levels of college programs, including college coaches and athletes. Along with the college level exposure, we will have world level athletes, running shoes specialists, and our featured athlete Rob Myers.
