Thank you Zika and to Pete and Ryan and the athletes as well. I’ve done a couple of running camps and yours was by far the best. It was so well organized and the balance of running and non-running activities was perfect. The trails were awesome and I got the do my first ever mountain hike/climb. The accomodations were clean, comfortable and convenient. I’ve told everyone that it was oddly strenuous, yet relaxing. I will definitely consider coming to camp again.”

July 2-7 Bear Week

Cost: $1,050.00
Guest Speaker: TBA

This week has been a camper favorite for years and provides the opportunity (should you choose) to run the Bear, the most popular race in the high country. The race itself is a 5 mile run up Grandfather Mountain, one of the highest peaks east of the Mississippi. The event is the last night of camp, and whether you’re racing it or cheering the runners on it is truly a one of a kind experience. In addition to the Bear this week provides all the opportunity to get all the running education we have to offer as well as time to relax and enjoy your time in the mountains. In addition to the daily runs, a yoga session, and a pool running workout our primary goal is to create an informative and relaxing running experience.
