Collegiate Running Summer Program

We are excited to introduce our first collegiate runner to the summer athlete contingent: Quinn Cooney. New this year, the goal of our Collegiate Running Summer Program is to support dedicated collegiate runners as they train for the fall Cross Country season while also giving them valuable work experience here at the Center. In addition to training this summer, Quinn will act as the collegiate running coach for all of our summer running camps and help lead our weekly community running programs. Quinn has also elected to work with the Center's sustainability team on a number of summer projects. We are happy to have you on board, Quinn!

Save the Date: Skiing for Runners 2020

January 2-5, 2020 - 4 Days

We're excited to announce our winter cross-training weekend for runners. Treadmills have their place. Gym work has its time. But winter can get claustrophobic indoors. Add some skis, snowshoes or winter run gear? You'll move thru the winter landscape noiselessly, another animal exploring under its own power. During your four days at Craftsbury, you'll unlock tactics to embrace winter across a variety of disciplines: daily runs, ski clinics, snowshoeing on our more than 100k of groomed trails, plus another 20k of singletrack trails throughout our extensive trail network - all right out the door. Once you've learned to winter, you'll reclaim your freedom to enjoy trails and woods that you haven't visited since last summer.

More details to come, but get this ...

Save the Date: Skiing for Scullers, January 2-5, 2019

Are you a sculler looking to expand your outdoor winter training options? Nordic skiing might just be the best way for rowers to cross-train while the liquid water is frozen – we certainly believe it is – and to that end, we’re hosting a “Skiing for Scullers” weekend January 2-5. 

It may surprise you to know that our GRP rowers spend more hours on skis from November through March than they do on the erg, and that they return to the water with even greater enthusiasm having given their bodies and their brains something new and different to work at. If anything, they find that not only have they not lost speed from the hiatus, they’ve gained greater readiness to put in more quality miles when they get back to liquid water. With equal measures of instruction, patience, and ...

Tuesday Night Trail Races

Bikers and runners alternate courses every week, with bikers contesting one course and runners the other to prevent any lapping - courses and maps coming
