Summit View High Altitude Running Camp

The Summit View High Altitude Running Camp was started in the summer of 2005 by coaches Dan Grimes, Ty Draney, and Jeff Horsley. In its 5th year, the camp is designed to increase an awareness and appreciation of running with runners attending half hour "mini-clinics." The topics for the "mini-clinics" include a variety of motivational exercises, goal setting, nutrition, racing strategies and tactics, team building activities, proper running form and assessment through video analysis as well as other running related topics. The clinics and camp are designed to develop a more well rounded XC runner. In addition to the clinics, athletes participate in 4 group runs on the myriad of trails branching out from camp and complete various running drills. The camp takes place in the picturesque Caribou National Forest at an elevation of 7,200 feet. The 2009 Camp featured 35 Athletes: 14 from Soda Springs High School, 12 from Idaho Falls High School, 8 from Star Valley, WY High School, and 1 from Madison High School.
