TMI to Host Training Camp for High School Runners

This summer The Mountain Institute will host the 2011 Spruce Mountain Running Camp. The camp, organized by the West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners, will take place from July 3-9 at the Spruce Knob Mountain Center. Over the week you will thoroughly explore the area, running, hiking and camping on the trails.

The staff is made up of expert runners, coaches and experienced wilderness guides. You’ll learn about running, trail stewardship, the botany and history of the area and yourself over the seven days and six nights of this camp. This camp is designed as an early season boost for your cross country system, but the actual running won’t be the hard part. You’ll be challenged in many ways and will become a better runner for it.

Come join us for a week of running in the woods this summer, in a truly special place.
