They say that champions are made in the off season, and CRC’s cross country camp is here to help you get the most out of your summer training.  Over the years, we've trained everyone from state champions to first-time XC athletes.  Let's run!

At CRCXC Camp, you will get to:

  • Log miles with the CRC
  • Learn the basics of nutrition, race strategies, the training puzzle, and more
  • Set challenging goals for the upcoming cross country season
  • Meet others and make new friends from teams throughout the Columbus area

Beyond all the running and clinics, we keep things fun, with games interspersed throughout each day’s session. CRCXC Camp fills up quickly each year, so get yourself signed up and come run with us this summer.

If you're looking to take your training up to yet another level, be sure to also check out the Myers Running Camp, Ohio's premier overnight camp in southern Ohio held from July 12-15.  Train with 3-time USATF national champ Rob Myers - a sub-4 miler and international track athlete - and Saucony.  

Further Camp Info

Each day, camp begins at 8:30am at the Dublin location of the award-winning Columbus Running Company.  Come dressed to run.

We'll split each morning between workouts and clinics, with mileage differing based on the training level you're currently at - and what you're aspiring towards.

Answer: CRCXC Camp is here to boost your training - but you can amp things up even more at a major overnight XC camp.  We highly recommend the Myers Running Camp in southern Ohio.  Camp counselors include a US national champ in the mile, a former OSU cross country coach, & current collegiate runners, as well as representatives from Saucony.  You won't find a more fun overnight camp experience than Myers Running Camp, too!
