- America's Guide for Running Camps and Clinics

Upcoming Sessions

Not available.
The Carolina Distance Camp is designed to give each camper the most authentic experience in learning what it means to be a track & field and cross country student-athlete at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The camp is open to all middle-distance and cross country athletes, ages 11-18, whom are interested in furthering their knowledge on training, injury prevention, running biomechanics, nutrition, strength training, and recovery.

Campers have the opportunity to run at many of the venues that the Tar Heels use for practice including nearby Carolina North Forest, American Tobacco Trail and our own cross country course at Finley Fields.

Educational lectures are given by accomplished NCAA coaches on topics geared toward achieving maximum performance through the many facets of training that have an impact on racing at your best. UNC coaches conduct a session to analyze, critique, and offer insight into each camper’s running biomechanics.  Campers also have the opportunity to run and spend time with current Carolina student-athletes.

    My son really enjoyed running with the UNC team members and getting to know them. He loved the entire atmosphere, campus, and experience! I would definitely recommend to any parents looking to send their child to a cross country camp!
