Far from just being an excuse to relive your childhood summers, going to a running camp is a fast way to shore up your weaknesses as a racer and improve your long-term performance. The main benefit isn’t the workouts—though you’ll log plenty of miles while you’re there. It’s the chance to get advice on nutrition, stretching, managing your training, and hydration from some of the running world’s top coaches. These three should be at the top of any list.
