Cross-Country Camp

This week was High Altitude Camp held at Altamont Campground up American Fork Canyon. We had 33 boys (the most ever) and 24 girls attend. They ran, They ate. They learned about running and training at an elite level.
We appreciate all the parents who drove the athletes to and from camp, and especially the chaperones and coaches who cooked, taught, and supervised the runs. It was a great successful camp. We will try to post the recipe for Caveman Stew on our AF Team Facebook Page.

The Grinder - Week 5 and High Altitude Camp


Thanks to Coach Mike Felix for bringing his team from Westlake to run the Grinder with us this morning. We will reciprocate on July 20th by going out to run their "Triple Threat" run.

Sara Musselman became the first athlete this Summer to earn a pair of spikes by running 9:28 up the Grinder.

We will begin loading at AFHS tomorrow at 12:30 for XC Camp at Altamont Campground up AF Canyon. Make sure to bring running gear, sleeping bag and tarp or tent, a camp chair, and your appetite.

Parents: Important Reminders

Please remember that your athlete needs to have a physical exam and the physical form completed (including insurance information) by June 26th in time for Camp.

Also remember to complete or renew your athlete's tryout checklist online ASAP.

This year athletes will be able to complete their mandatory concussion training online. They need to complete it and print out the concussion training certificate and hand that in to their coach.
