Nike Smoky Mountain Running Camp


  • University of North Carolina Asheville (map)

The Smoky Mountain Running Camp puts great emphasis on teaching runners the wisdom of the hard/easy training philosophy developed by the late, great U of Oregon Coach and Nike Co-Founder Bill Bowerman. To implement the Bowerman philosophy, we use Coach Roy Benson's Effort Based Training Program to allow the whole camp to run the same appropriate effort while allowing each group to train at their individualized paces based on their current fitness, over-all ability, and general goals. The instruction is serious, the training is right for this time of the summer, and there will be opportunities to make new friends from all over the Southeast, the USA, and maybe even with someone from Europe, South American, or Asia. We welcome your presence.
