Luther College Summer Distance Runing Camp


We are excited to host the Luther College Distance Running Camp this summer! The three-day camp will be packed with running specific presentations to increase your knowledge of the sport and build your motivation. The camp is designed for boys and girls, grades 7-12 who are excited to become better runners and enhance their knowledge of the sport.

Topics may include training principles, nutrition, goal setting, motivation, strength training, visualization, and relaxation. We will do a master workout each day focused on hill-training, threshold and interval training and a long run, as well as opportunities for getting on the beautiful trails close to campus. We might even sneak in a water workout too!

Throughout the camp we will focus on how each of us can become better distance runners and do so in a way that celebrates our talents and supports our camp teammates. The camp will strive to provide opportunities to enhance your knowledge of running and inspire a summer of outstanding preparation for the upcoming season!

Below is the winter training plan that leads all the way up until track season starts (March 14th is 1st official day). 

The biggest thing is listening to your body and being consistent. It is hard to get out there and train in the winter, but it is possible! If you are injury prone, please substitute 2 days a week to cross training (elliptical, stationary biking, rowing, and swimming).
