We wanted to let everyone know that running legend Melody Fairchild will be joining us as a Guest Coach and Speaker at the YR Elite Middle School Camp August 2nd-8th.
It you're not familiar with Melody here's a short list of accomplishments:
•First high school girl to break 10 minutes for the 2 mile in 9:55.
•Twice she won the Kinney XC National Championships
•(Kinney is what Foot Locker Nationals used to be called)
•Still holds the Foot Locker course record at Balboa Park.
•8 time Colorado State Champion while at Boulder High School.
•3 Time All-American and an NCAA 3k Champ Indoors in 9:07
•3rd at the World XC Championships in 1991
Melody is looking forward to sharing some of her experiences and give the campers a perspective on their own running journey, dreams, and the big picture for them. We're fortunate to have her at our camp.
There are other exciting things in the works for the campers and we will keep you posted.
It's open to boys and girls entering the 6th-7th-8th grade this fall.
Sorry high school freshman, middle school only.
