About Pyramid Running Camp
Pyramid Running Camp was founded to provide experience, knowledge, and recreation for high school runners. We are committed to provide an incredible camp experience and bring together a strong staff with impressive running backgrounds. Our low staff to camper ratio allows for individualized instruction and attention. We also have an athletic trainer working during PRC to help injured campers or those needing medical assistance. Please read our mission and meet our staff below for more information about our vision and the background we have to offer.
The Pyramid Running Camp mission is to provide a firm foundation in the sport of running through healthy, thoughtful training in a fun and educational environment. Building a base for running success starts with commitment, consistency, persistence, and determination. The Pyramid Running Camp will provide any runner the opportunity to combine these ideals with a variety of training techniques to achieve great success.
