About Run Republic Running Camp Run Republic Running Camp was created by two current high school cross country and track coaches with the goal of merging the typical college-campus based summer running camp with the modern, mobile and exciting teen tour. At the core of Run Republic is running. But beyond that, it offers participants mentorship, training, travel, adventure, friendship, education, fun and excitement. The Run Republic mission is to create memories, experiences and bonds that go beyond running and will last a lifetime!
On Monday morning my co-coach and I returned from Run Republic Running Camp out west in Colorado and Utah where we hosted seven high school boys (15-18 years of age). To say it was a blast would be an understatement. For ten days, Doug Horn and I were lucky enough to travel through two states, run, hike, swim, paddle, kayak, eat, play disk golf and corn hole and sooo much more with seven pretty amazing and fun kids.
Our goal is offer this Running Camp trip to more kids (and adults) from South Florida and beyond throughout the year. We truly believe we are on to something and after this first run through…we are pretty confident the demand and success will be off the charts!
