Atlanta Track Club has made the difficult decision to cancel its 2020 cross country camp at Young Harris College.
While the Club is
confident in its ability to deliver a best-in-class experience to our campers,
the state's recently provided guidelines around the operation of overnight
camps dictate requirements on food service, cleaning services and limits on the
number and type of interactions that campers can participate in. These are
beyond what we know we can deliver at this time.
Date & Time
- $550 Dec. 1 - Jan 15; $600 Jan. 16 - April 31; $650 May 1 - May 31; $725 June 1 - July 1
Young Harris College
Young Harris, Georgia is located in the southern Appalachian Mountains, ideally situated between the Chattahoochee, Cherokee and Nantahala National Forests, and a scenic two-hour drive from Atlanta, Georgia and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Daily Run Workouts
Campers will be assigned to a run group based on their experience level submitted in registration. Each day will include a morning run and an optional afternoon run on campus. Daily mileage will vary for each run group beginning at 3 miles. No runs will exceed 6 miles, campers wishing to run more than 6 miles should plan to join the afternoon run for additional mileage. Camp counselors will lead run groups.
Guest Speakers and Clinics
Each day campers will participate in skills and drills clinics and hands on topic presentations with guest speakers. These sessions will provide hands on experience that campers can immediately put into practice and applied to their workouts building more educated runners.
While the Club's no refund policy remains in place for all of its events, it will NOT retain entry fees for its Cross Country Camp in 2020 without offering participants consideration and options if the Camp is not held in calendar year 2020 as a result of Covid-19. One of these options will include a full refund of registration fees.
Other refunds will be considered for medical reasons only. Requests must be submitted with a physician's letter prior to 7/1/2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org. A $100 deposit and processing fee will be retained.
