This week kicks off registration for Soler’s Summer Running Camp — an 8-week camp targeted at middle school through college-aged athletes who are looking to make their cross country season the best yet. Although cross country will be the main focus you can also participate if you desire to get in shape for a fall sport or just aim to get in amazing shape (beach bodies anyone?). This camp isn’t just for the 5-minute milers rather for all abilities looking to train through the summer.

We are so excited for this summer because this year there will be a few really great changes that will make this year’s camp be the biggest, most fun, and best camp yet!

Kicking things off we will be having not one but THREE separate locations this year (1. Stone Oak/McAllister Park   2. Helotes/O.P. Schnabel Park   3. Olmos Park). With 3 locations, finding the one that is the most convenient for you will be very simple. Each site will be following the same training program simply headed up by a head coach and led at a different location.

This year we are going to be having a lot of fun at the camp. To ensure that this happens we have created the “fun committee”. They are dedicated to work ‘round the clock to continuously come up with fun and crazy, cool ideas to keep you coming to San Antonio’s #1 place to run and train during summer 2011.

Our fun committee started by getting some really cool speakers. We have
great college coaches coming to talk as well as some other great speakers. You won’t want to miss out!

To add to the fun they next created “Funner Fridays”- all three locations will meet together (alternating between the three locations) 5 different Fridays throughout the course of the camp. These Fridays will be the crazy fun days that will have either a time trial or game day (don’t worry we will still run before our games). Each “Funner Fridays” will have a recommended theme (it could be a sport team, a color, the 70’s etc.) that will be announced the Monday before.

Other perks to the camp include: Awards for best attendance Male and Female, Awards for most improved Male and Female, 20% discount on running shoes, apparel, and accessories at all four Soler’s locations for the duration of the camp. Also there is a special promotion for first time registrants who sign up in the store (so make sure you ask).

So head to the stores and get signed up so we can help show you that our training is more than just miles — its smiles too!
