Event Description

Grand Valley State Track & Field Camps

Track & Field Camp

GVSU’s Track and Field program has won 65 GLIAC Team championships since 1999.  GVSU’s women’s Track and Field Program has won 4 NCAA Championships.  The men’s program earned NCAA National Runner-Up in 2015, 2014, 2016, and 2017. GVSU has produced over 500 All-Americans in track and field since 1999.  Camp will be led by GVSU Cross Country coaches Alan Dunson, Sean Denard and Steve Jones. 

The camp philosophy is to provide athletes the knowledge and understanding of distance running in a fun and motivational atmosphere in order to prepare athletes to have success in future seasons. Train with runners from around the Midwest, learn from collegiate coaches on practical and technical aspects of the sport, and run with collegiate and professional athletes that have experienced top levels of training and racing throughout the U.S. and the World.
