The 2011 Spruce Mountain Running Camp will take place from July 3-9 at The Mountain Institute in Pendleton County, WV. The location is just down from Spruce Knob, the highest point in the state, and is surrounded by the Seneca Creek Backcountry. This is truly a wild and wonderful corner of the state that many residents of WV never get a chance to see. 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.
The camp costs $590 for WV residents and $640 for out-of-state campers; Multiple scholarships are available, check here for the latest updates.
