5 Stars - Very Professional!
Coaches and staff were very professional, motivational and really understand teens in the age range. I really liked the structure, and how involved the Duke coaches were in making everyone feel included and challenged. I will definitely recommend to friends and I'm looking forward to returning next year.
4 Stars - Friendly and Challenging!
I loved the camp!  They provided me with good information on running techniques and nutritional values that all runners need. The coaches were really friendly, but also challenged me a lot.
4 Stars - Boost your summer training!
The camp is a great way to boost your summer training and have fun!
