The first inaugural Bowerman Running Camp was held in Bend, Oregon this summer. With 5+ days of great trails, hotly contested games, cooking lessons with Shalane Flanagan, and a river float, the energy was at an all time high.
We hosted over 100+ kids from all around world at the facilities at OSU-Cascades in Bend, including people coming all the way from Australia. We had a great roster of speakers and counselors, including college athletes and coaches from around the country, our own elite and pro athletes, as well as the man, the myth, the legend, Coach Jerry Schumacher.
We’ll always be looking for ways to improve the experience, including making it more accessible to more kids - but we feel like we have a great base to build on in the years to come.
