DESCRIPTION

2 Peaks, 30 Miles, 1 Week of Trails

We love trail running and love to see our youth taking advantage of the many trails we are so fortunate to be surrounded by here in Palmer, Alaska. AKtive Camp 231 is a trail and mountain running day camp for teens ages 14 -18. Participants will expand their running techniques through various terrains and have the opportunity to spend time exploring and running local trails. The camp week will include trails at Crevasse Moraine, Matanuska Lake, and Reed Lakes as well as climbing and running Government Peak and Lazy Mountain.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Campers will receive quality coaching in both mountain and trail running form, technique, and endurance by local high school cross country coaches Rhonda Knopp and Norm Rousey who have a combined experience of over 40 years of coaching youth and adult runners. This week will challenge your teen runner in skill, endurance and fortitude as well as provide learning opportunities about the proper training, fueling, and safety involved in long distance and high altitude running.

HOW TO PREPARE:

While your child will be coached in running techniques and learn different aspects of running, they should also be ready for the intensity of this camp. Campers should come to camp with a solid running foundation and be able to run at least six miles (10k) without stopping. There are no pace requirements, we will have pace chaperones for all levels. Upon registering your child, you will receive an email including a basic schedule of running workouts from Coach Rousey to help your child prepare for the week of camp.
