The Mizzou Cross Country Camp is designed to educate young student-athletes about how to become better distance runners and leaders. Our hope is to provide a fun, exciting environment for campers to learn how to compete at the highest level and make their team better in the process. The camp will provide some great instructional tools but will also teach campers the secrets of success on a daily basis. Come out and train with the Tigers and give yourself a competitive advantage in November.
