SOUTHERN UTAH HIGH ALTITUDE XC RUNNING CAMP

SOUTHERN UTAH HIGH ALTITUDE CROSS COUNTRY CAMP, 5,700 TO 11,000 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL, IS THE BEST IN ALL THE COUNTRY FOR ITS INFORMATION, BEAUTY, WIDE RANGE OF TRAINING ALTITUDES, AND UNBEATABLE PRICE. THE CAMP IS OPEN TO ATHLETES AGES 13 TO 19. THE ATHLETES WILL BE PLACED INTO TRAINING GROUPS ACCORDING TO THEIR ABILITY LEVEL. YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER XC RUNNING CAMP, AND THIS CAMP FOCUSES ON INDIVIDUALIZED HELP FOR EACH ATHLETE’S PERSONAL TRAINING GOALS.

THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND HIGH ALTITUDE TRAINING IS THAT IF YOU CAN ACCLIMATE YOUR BODY TO TRAIN AT LEVELS WITH LESS OXYGEN, YOU WILL ACTUALLY INCREASE YOUR RED BLOOD CELLS. THE INCREASE OF RED BLOOD CELLS WILL PREVENT THE BUILD-UP OF LACTIC ACID, AND KEEP YOUR HEART RATE LOWER EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE PUSHING YOURSELF HARDER THAN AT ALTITUDE. THIS TRAINING CAN GIVE YOU THE EDGE TO A PERFECT SEASON.

JUST AS IMPORTANT AS TRAINING, THE ATHLETES WILL GAIN VALUABLE INFORMATION CONCERNING NCAA CLEARINGHOUSE, INJURY PREVENTION, NUTRITION, AND HELPFUL TOOLS TO DEAL WITH THE MENTAL GAME OF RUNNING. WHEN NOT TRAINING OR IN WORKSHOPS, ACTIVITIES ARE A BIG PART OF THE ATHLETE’S CAMP EXPERIENCE. THE CAMP ACTIVITIES RANGE FROM MOVIES, WATER GAMES TO THE TONY AWARD UTAH SHAKESPEAREAN FESTIVAL GREEN SHOW.

THE ANNUAL SOUTHERN UTAH HIGH ALTITUDE RUNNING CAMP IS FOR HIGH SCHOOL XC/T&F ATHLETES AND THE CAMP IS BASED AT BRIAN HEAD SKI RESORT (~5,700 TO ~11,000 FEET). THE ALTITUDE RUNNING CAMP AND PROGRAM DEVELOPED SOUTHERN UTAH UNIVERSITY’S TWO-TIME NCAA CHAMPION AND 2012 OLYMPIAN, Cameron Levins.

THIS IS THE BEST HIGH ALTITUDE RUNNING CAMP FOR YOUR MONEY. WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE?
