XC Camp


8:00-11:00 each day


The Greater Cleveland XC Camp is geared for the beginner to the advanced runner, who is looking to have a better focus pertaining to the fundamentals of cross country running and conditioning, to obtain maximum benefit. Through group runs, guest speakers and group activities, each runner will leave with a positive attitude, tools to become an improved runner, and a better understanding of running. The XC camp will be held Tuesday, July 28th through Saturday, August 1st  from 8am till 11:00am at Shore Middle School in Mentor, Ohio. The camp is open to boys and girls grades kindergarten-12th.   While being able to utilize the schools facilities, the camp also features an outdoor amphitheater for group activity, a cross country course, access to a Lake Metropark, miles of bike paths, and rural trails though the Mentor Marsh for training. The Greater Cleveland XC Camp is aware that our campers represent a wide variety of talent, motivations, and experience and we are prepared to tailor our camp to each person’s needs. We hope each camper leaves with the love and passion that the staff at the Greater Cleveland XC Camp has.
