Islanders Cross Country Camp Set for July 11-14


CORPUS CHRISTI – The Texas A&M - Corpus Christi Cross Country program is hosting a four-day cross country camp starting on Thursday, July 11, at noon and continuing through Sunday, July 14, at noon.

The camp is geared for middle and high school boys and girls who are interested in training through the summer in order to prepare for the upcoming cross country season. Both experienced and novice runners will benefit. Athletes who want to gain that edge over the competition are encouraged to come this summer and learn how to get in excellent shape while enjoying the fun and camaraderie of fellow runners from around the state.

The nation's only Island University, the beautiful and scenic Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi campus, will serve as host for the running camp. Overnight campers will stay in apartment dorms on campus and campus food service will provide the meals.

The camp directors and staff will present the latest in running from training techniques, theories, nutrition, hydration, running footwear, training philosophies, analysis of form from video tape, pre-racing strategies and post-race evaluating. Campers will work out several times a day.

The fee for the camp is $300 per camper for overnight and $150 per camper for day campers. The fee will include all instruction, a room, meals and commemorative tshirt.

When registering overnight campers, groups of five or more, a $50 discount will be given to each camper. This must be done at time of registration and there is a $50 late fee if received after July 1, 2013.
