We’re super proud to wrap up another successful year in Steamboat Springs at our second annual high school running camp. This year we had athletes and coaches from 14 different states including Wyoming, Texas, New Jersey, Florida and more.

We’re very excited about the Second Annual Run SMART XC Camp in Steamboat Springs, CO. Feedback like below from our first year has us more motivated than ever to continue supporting younger athletes.
Josh Allen, XC and Track coach at Prosper High School in Texas, after attending last year’s camp with his team:
I’m really glad we attended the Run SMART camp last summer. Every runner that attended camp ran personal bests in cross country in the fall, taking an average of over 1:00 off their 5k XC times, and both teams qualified for the regional cross country championships when neither had the previous season. The girls jumped from 7th in district to champions! They narrowly missed a trip to the state championships by 7 points! We will have 8-9 girls attending the camp this summer.
Success continued in track as well with several personal bests, including our top girl bringing her PR in the 3200 down from 11:38 to 11:16 and her 1600 from 5:18 to 5:13. Our top boy got his personal bests down to 4:23 for 1600 and 1:57 for the 800. He just signed his letter of intent to run at Abilene Christian University. I’m looking forward to returning to camp this summer, and I hope it’s a tradition that continues for our program into the future.
We’re back in Steamboat Springs, CO this summer (July 27th – August 2nd) for the 2nd Annual Run SMART Camp! This year we’ve moved the dates back a week to make it more convenient for coaches and teams to attend. Oh, and we added maybe the greatest running coach of all time to the itinerary. Dr. Jack Daniels is coming!
We’re back for another year after a successful start to our now annual Run SMART High School Camp in beautiful Steamboat Springs, CO. This year we’ve added Dr. Jack Daniels to our list of featured speakers. All high school coaches who bring 5 athletes or more come free of charge and will have an opportunity to consult with Jack on season preparation/team strategy in our coaches workshop.

We are super excited to be launching the 1st Annual Run SMART High School Running Camp in Steamboat Springs, CO (August 4th-10th). Steamboat is famous for it’s winter skiing and the many youth winter sports champions that arise, but soon enough for high school athletes conquering it’s mountain trails in the summer too.
Why A High School Camp?
We’re now entering our 5th year of the Run SMART Adult Running Retreats and felt it was time to provide an opportunity for youth athletes to work with us in-person too. Run SMART coaches are uniquely suited to mentor high school athletes. We’re all recent high school, college and post-collegiate standouts and each have had lots of success coaching high school athletes privately. We’ll be offering opportunities for coaches and athletes to consult about season preparation and race strategies.
