Summer XC Camp
Westwood Cross Country Camp
Each year, some OA Cross Country runners decide to attend a running camp, typically in August, before the season starts. There are many XC Camps in the New England Area, but the one that our coaching staff recommends is Westwood Running Camp
If you choose to attend a Summer XC Camp, be aware of the following:
The purpose is to have fun, get your summer training in, and learn more about the sport. The purpose is not to hammer a big week of training right before the season starts.
You should not run dramatically more miles, or dramatically different workouts than what the rest of your summer training has been designed to include. (that is a good way to get injured).
The cost of camps usually runs around $700.00 (give or take a couple hundred). That cost is the responsibility of the athlete/parents
