Running Routes:

Hazing has no place on our team in any way, shape, manner or form and will not be tolerated (off-season or in-season):

Local "Summer Camp"
One way to have fun running over the summer is to find new and interesting venues to test drive.  So to encourage your exploration, here is a series of suggested destinations for each Thursday this summer.
July 11- Northwest Park, Windsor
July 18 - Berlin Open Space, near Sage Park (mini golf) and Lamentation Mountain (hiking)
July 25 - Rockwell Park, Bristol (compare BC's "monster" to ours)
Aug 1 - West Hartford Resevoir
Aug 8 - Stratton Brook, Simsbury (state park with swimming)
Aug 15 - Winding Trails, Farmington (need to pay, but includes swimming)
Anytime - Vernon (Church St) Rails to Trails, and trail along CT River between Wethersfield & Rocky Hill Ferry

Overnight Summer Camps:

Attending a week-long summer camp is an excellent way to build strength and friendships.  As an added incentive, the XC Boosters generously provide scholarships.  Camp is most fun when you attend with other friends, so consult them and your parents to put together a fun & productive summer running experience!  Here is a sampling of summer running camps:
Lyndonville, VT (long ride), also has Facebook page with lots of photos
fav of Hall, Avon, Glastonbury, Tolland, Conard (some of their coaches are staff there)
