Lodestar Park, Newton, NJ
Our 21st year of Xtreme!
X-Treme Youth Running Camp has earned an excellent reputation as one of the region's premier youth running camps. In its 21st year, the camp is held at bucolic Lodestar Park which offers a host of varying terrains making it the perfect venue to prepare middle and high school kids for their upcoming cross country season or condition them for whatever fall sport they do.
The Camp runs from Monday, July 25th through Friday, July 29th from 9 am to noon each day of the week and features fantastic motivational guest speakers as well as endurance and speed preparation.
The X-Treme Running Camp experience is something fantastic and unique. The camp takes full advantage of Lodestar Park's superb training venues. The camp caters to middle and high school runners, but younger kids with a love of the sport often also attend. We welcome runners of all abilities as well as athletes involved in other sports looking to improve their endurance, speed and overall fitness. Camp runs from 9 am to noon, and each day includes an endurance session, a speed session (in each kids are grouped according to their ability) plus a highly-acclaimed guest speaker. Our camp is directed by elite distance running husband and wife team Guy & Laurie Gordon, and all counselors are seasoned adult runners. We motivate with goal-setting, visualization, form analysis, injury prevention, overall core and body strength building, racing techniques and the power to believe in yourself and reach your full potential.
