Upcoming Sessions

2017-07-09 - 2017-07-12 Nike Cross Country Camp West Chester University

Classroom lectures on current running issues will include exercise physiology, aqua running, plyometrics, strength training, injury prevention, establishing goals, visualizing success, racing tactics, training shoe and racing spike selection, training technique and nutrition.

Located just outside of Philadelphia, West Chester University provides a convenient, top-notch location for camp this summer. Overnight campers reside in the campus dormitories where staff and resident advisors supervise campers overnight. Campers have several options for training, including the track at John A. Farrell Stadium, the wooded trails of the Gordon Natural Preserve, and the rural roads of WCU’s South Campus.  In addition to running, camp focuses on supplementary exercises to keep distance runners strong, flexible, and healthy. There is a morning and evening work out that are both 2-2.5 hours. Our afternoon session is reserved for guest speakers & weight room (if available).

    I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and wish my mom had discovered it sooner! The experience opened up my eyes to the bigger scope of life, beyond high school, and set bigger goals to accomplish in college and beyond while improving my sport.

    I had a fantastic time! I learned tons of different workouts I'd never heard of before. The instructers were so inspiring! They explained workouts and stretches in a detailed and easy to follow manner. I liked that they took video of us running so we could look at our form. From the wonderful staff to the exiting workouts, Nike Cross Country was the best experience ever. I would love to come back as an overnight camper next year.
