Bluegrass Running Camp Inaugural Event

Running camp is a time-honored tradition. It's the next step for a runner who is growing a love for running and wants to turn up the effort and success. As a runner in Kentucky, registering for camp means not only finding a good camp but booking an airline ticket and traveling half a day by yourself. It's time for a quality overnight running camp right here in Kentucky.

Jacob Thomson, Jimi Burress, and Thomas Cave are giving Kentucky runners an opportunity to attend a quality camp without boarding a plane.

Speakers include long time University of Kentucky team doctor and Sword founder, Dr. Scott Black and former British 800m champion and current Cal Poly Sports Psychologist Dr. Tim Bailey. There will also be a college coach round table at the end of the week.

Registration is open and at a discount until May 21st.

The current counselor roster is a who's who of state champions and current D1 runners. Here are a few of them who were in your shoes just a couple of years ago. Come learn what it takes to make the next level, from peers who have just done it.
