Testimonials

BMore Elite Distance Camp Testimonials

  • I was so lucky to attend the inaugural BMore Elite Distance running camp over the summer between my junior and senior years in high school. The coaches provided excellent guidance not only in running, but also about the whole maze of the college search process and recruiting. I think the camp and working alongside great counselors and other phenomenal runners helped improve my whole perspective, and was instrumental in helping me drop my times significantly as a senior and qualifying for Nationals

  • BMore Elite Distance Camp really showed me what it takes to be a strong distance runner at the collegiate level; the training and the information sessions were both valuable and fun, and it was terrific hanging out with like-minded runners
