Distance Camp

2020 Dates: June 14-17

The Culver Distance Camp exists to inspire and teach distance runners to become faster, better educated and enthusiastically dedicated to the sports of cross-country and track.  Our purpose is to build up, and inspire the whole person- mentally, physically and spiritually.

You will love our beautiful 2000-acre campus and lake, our dedicated and professional staff of coaches from various parts of the country, Olympic and elite athletes, motivating speakers, diverse classes, training opportunities and the comradery that comes from an energetic setting of distance athletes who love running!

We look forward to seeing you in Culver!
