Join us this summer for a week you will never forget!

About the Running Camp

July 8-13, 2024

Since 2008, the Montreat College Running Camp has welcomed runners from all over the country to experience a week of training, fellowship, and worship. We believe that our location in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina provides the ideal place to enhance your summer training and learn how to best use you’re the gift of running for God’s glory!

Not only will you be surrounded by other runners but also a dedicated staff of coaches and hand-selected group of college counselors who where chosen for their Christ-centered leadership and knowledge of the sport. It is our hope that this will be a transformational week that will help you grow as a leader and propel you towards great cross country and track & field seasons.

We look forward to seeing you in Montreat this July!
