The 2018 Northern Arizona Lumberjack Cross Country Camp is a unique opportunity for high school athletes to experience training with the 2016 and 2017 NCAA Division I Cross Country National Champions. Our program is designed for athletes to thrive in a camp environment based on specialized training, continued running education, and individualized attention. Campers will run with and learn from Northern Arizona University coaches and athletes.



DATES: July 18 – 22, 2018

For five days, you will be immersed in a training environment unlike any other: endless trails, a coaching staff with experience at every level, guest speakers with World and Olympic titles to their name, all while surrounded by 2-time National Cross Country Champions from NAU.
