Our Mission at The Ultimook Running Camp is to develop long distance runners in both mind and body. This includes training and racing philosophy, character development, and leadership skills. Our desire is to expose you to a REAL cross country experience. We will prepare you for the challenges of a tough cross country season as well as the ups and downs of every day life. We’re building leaders and want you to be a part of the team.
The iceberg represents your leadership. The 10% above the water is your skill. The 90% below the water is your character. It’s what’s below the surface that sinks the ship.
We believe the whole is much greater than the sum of all parts. In other words, good runners don’t make good teams, but rather good teams make good runners. Though most people outside the sport don’t consider cross country a team sport, we all know that it is one of the most exciting elements of the sport.
My proudest moments I have in running are not my individual accomplishments, nor even our team championships, but rather the sacrifices and leadership I extended to my teammates. Those are the moments that I will remember forever.
In addition to good training, our main focus at this camp it to build leaders. Stellar leadership is synonymous to a great cross country team and in all aspects of success after high school. You will be challenged as runners, but you’ll also be challenged to return home as a leader in life. Please join us in this journey.
