After a productive first week of training in Bend, Oregon, the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team athletes took a break to run around with some of the speediest youngsters in the area on Sunday. The women hosted a Fast and Female event, while the guys hosted ‘Speed Camp.’
Founded by Simi Hamilton and Andy Newell, Speed Camp came around four years ago while training in New Zealand. Similar to Fast and Female, the idea was to create a fun and exciting clinic for junior boys, while helping sport development along the way. This time, 30 juniors turned up for a two-hour dryland training workout.
