As the head of the McMillan Elite team, legendary distance coach Greg McMillan has trained Olympians. But he’s best known for the accessible and effective custom training programs that he creates for everyday amateur runners. His camps, held at nearly 7,000 feet in the desert of Northern Arizona, are intense and wide-ranging in focus. Attendees get one-on-one input on technique, training, nutrition, and injury prevention, as well as the chance to run on some of the most striking desert mountain trails in the country ($300 for a four-day camp).
