Mammoth Camp

JOIN US AT MAMMOTH CAMP FOR A WEEK OF TRAINING & FUN!
Mammoth Camp is a great opportunity for athletes to train in the mountains and participate in other fun activities such as swimming, fishing and hiking with their teammates. This year, the camp will be held from August 13-19, 2017 (new dates this year!!). Only the top 14 point-earners will qualify to attend, so go to the Point System for more info. Invitations are subject to coaches discretion (camp is rigorous and athletes must be able to complete the challenging runs), as are final numbers of athletes that will be taken. Special invitation may be granted to athletes who finish in the top 5 in one time trial, finish top 7 in two time trials or finish top 10 in all time trials, but are not in the top 14 by points (they will not take a spot of someone already in the top 14). The cost this year will be approximately $325 (subject to change).

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THOSE ATTENDING MAMMOTH CAMP:
