Youth

"Number one is just to gain a passion for running.  To love the morning, to love the trail, to love the pace on the track."

-Pat Tyson

YOUTH DISTANCE RUNNING CAMP

This camp will be for boys and girls entering fifth through eighth grade who are looking for a way to develop their running ability and passion for the sport.  It is a great opportunity for middle school cross country runners to prepare for their season.  The camp is also strongly recommended for anyone interested in running cross country and/or track in high school.  Participants will be introduced to the same training program that is used by the cross country and track teams at Highland Park High School.  This camp will not only build endurance and speed, but will also help children improve their work ethic, build self-esteem and develop a love for long distance running.

This program will be run by Steve Buti and Nick Luttrell.  Steve is the head cross country and track & field coach for the boys at Highland Park High School.  He also teaches Physical Education at Lincoln Elementary School.  Nick is a former Highland Park High School cross country and track & field member.
