Build a Foundation
Add some variety to your exercise routine. Run one day and strength train the next. This will not only hold your interest in the workouts longer, but it will give your body the time it needs for recovery. Additionally, you are covering more muscle groups throughout the body and keeping the workouts motivating and different.
To build up endurance for your 5K race include some interval training as part of your regimen. Use hill sessions and up-tempo to your runs to do this. Hold a steady running pace where you do not feel like you are just about to die, but that you can keep going.
Head to the track for shorter interval runs while learning to pace yourself. Learn to conserve your energy during the first part of the race and then to let go in the second half so you can make it to the finish line of you 5K race.
Camp Runabout is an all-inclusive, fun-filled summer camp for adult runners (sorry, you gotta be 21). Held in the Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, Camp Runabout brings like-minded runners together for 3 days of training and fun. Camp Runabout allows you to revisit the fun you had (or missed) at summer camp as a child while enjoying the benefits of adulthood (an open bar!). Each morning starts with a run in a scenic location near camp. During the day, our 200-acre camp is your personal playground, as you are free to explore all of your favorite camp activities like zipling, high ropes course, flying trapeze, arts & crafts, and canoeing. The fun continues into the evenings with nationally-recognized speakers, a bonfire with smores and a camp-wide party with a DJ or Band.
Camp Runabout’s all-inclusive experience encompasses all of your meals, lodging, camp activities, speakers, entertainment and an open bar throughout the weekend. So once you pull into camp you can put your wallet away.
MEALS: Breakfast (with mimosas and bloody marys), lunch and dinner. We will also have a roaming snack cart all-day during camp activities, and late-night munchies served at our camp cantina.
LODGING: Campers will bunk in our cabins with other runners. Each bunk has its own showers, toilets, and sinks, along with a porch for relaxation. For those coming camp with a loved one (or if you simply want more privacy), we have a limited number of private rooms available. Our private rooms still share hallway bathrooms.
CAMP ACTIVITIES: We offer a wide range of fun camp activists for your enjoyment like: high ropes course, low ropes course, zip line, climbing tower, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boats, fishing, flying trapeze, primitive fire starting, swimming, arts & crafts, kickball, dodgeball, tennis, softball, and more. You are free to revisit your childhood at your own pace. Go from one activity to the next, hang out at your favorite one all day long.
OPEN BAR: We will have an open bar during the evenings starting with beginning with Happy Hour, and continuing through dinner, and our nightly entertainment. For your safety, there will be no alcohol served during daily camp activities.
SPEAKERS & INSTRUCTORS: Camp Runabout will feature nationally-known speakers that are both educational and inspirational. Our speakers will cover topics that are of interest to everyday runners. Please watch our website and newsletter for announcements about our 2018 speakers. Camp Runabout will also have a host of instructors who will lead classes throughout the weekend. Our daily classes will cover everything from Zumba, yoga, self-massage and more.
ENTERTAINMENT: Late night entertainment includes DJs, musicians and/or bands. We will also have Disco party on Friday night, so dressed to boogy.
At Camp Runabout, we all have something in common - we love running as much as we love having fun. So if you want to escape the “real world" and spend a long weekend in the mountains with other runners who like to have a good time, then register now because spots are limited.
