Girls for Tahoe – 21 final spots

2015 Summer High Altitude Camp in Tahoe at Zephyr Point: July 26 – 31

We will be taking the top 15-20 runners from each of the girls' and boys' team.

If you expect to be in those groups then please save the last week in July so that you can join us. 

Types of Workouts

We deploy a variety of runs and workouts to get optimum performance from our athletes. The foundation of our training is about developing extremely strong aerobic capability. Delivering a high volume of oxygen to muscles when training for racing is the goal of our aerobic-based runs. We work on being able to sustain that volume for long periods of time. Aerobic capacity is critical for creating highly competitive race-ready athletes. We complement that with strength and faster race pace training to condition our runners for the paces necessary to compete strongly in races.

Our Mission

We Train to Race

  1. That thought – We Train to Race – is our mantra. Everything we do is part of training for the race. Those four words constantly circle through our thoughts to remind us. We Train to Race. We Train to Race. We Train to Race. When we are training, we are thinking about racing.

XC 2015 - A New Beginning

We want to extend a huge welcome to all our new and returning runners for the 2015 season! Cross Country is a challenging sport that requires dedication, determination and grit but attracts some of the greatest student/athletes and families at West Ranch. Not only does our program carry the highest team GPA in the school but we have our teams and athletes competing and winning against some of the finest teams in the state and nation. The team's success is not only a testament to the hard work of our student athletes but also our incredible coaching staff and parents.
