I want to get in shape for the fall marathon season. What are the best adult running camps in the U.S.?

A:Of the three training centers on this list, Craftsbury feels the most like a real summer camp. You’ll stay in a cabin on the shores of a lake in the woods, surrounded by the gentle peaks of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Beyond the nostalgia-inducing setting, you’ll train hard, running two workouts a day and a training program each evening under former world cross-country champion and Olympic 10,000-meter bronze medalist Lynn Jennings. The center hosts programs throughout the summer and fall; weekend camps cost $350, while a week-long camp will run you $980.
