Montreat College Running Camp

Montreat, North Carolina

2017 Camp Dates: July 10-15

We are excited to host you for the 2017 Montreat College Running Camp. The camp registration form can be found HERE.

This year's camp will be for runners entering 9th grade through rising high school seniors. Due to the steady growth of our camp over the past few years, it became necessary from a safety standpoint to limit the camp to high school runners.

There will be a select few spaces reserved for middle school runners and these spaces will be filled at the discretion of the Camp Director. For any middle school runner accepted to the camp, a parent/guardian will be required to accompany them for the week and reside with their runner in the residence hall. If you are a middle school runner interested in attending this year's camp, please contact Jason Lewkowicz at 

The college runners are back! Runners attending the 2017 MCRC will be joined by a group of collegiate runners from Montreat College, Allen Community College, and Lancaster Bible College. These runners will serve as running group leaders, small group leaders, and will make sure to keep the atmosphere fun!
