During the 2019 March Break, 310 Running headed to Las Vegas, Nevada for its annual warm weather training camp. The team took advantage of clear skies & unlimited sunshine to transition from their indoor to outdoor track season.
With the support of UNLV & Pearson Community Center, the team had access to everything required to get in some solid steeplechase, mid-distance, sprint & strength training. In addition to training, our athletes had the chance to compete in their first NCAA meet at the UNLV Spring Invitational.
And of course, the track training was augmented with some unbelieveable hikes in Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire State Park & Zion National Park.
Special thanks go to Donna Maurice who kept everyone fuelled up & moving and Coach Gord Everett who took time away from his first vacation in 15 years to lead our strength & conditioning workouts.
The 2020 training camp is tentatively scheduled for March 17-24. Stay tuned for details.

310 Running hosted its first warm weather training camp in Phoenix, Arizona during the 2018 March Break.
Eleven athletes, three coaches & a chaperone took advantage of the perfect Arizona weather to start the transition from indoor to outdoor track & field. With exclusive use of a local high school track, the team was able to get in some solid mid-distance, hurdle & high jump work. The track & field training was augmented with some challenging hikes over some spectacular terrain including climbs up Camelback Mountain & Piestewa Peak & a descent into the Grand Canyon.
Sharing a beautiful 4800 sq. ft. home in downtown Phoenix provided a unique opportunity for the team to bond at the track, on the trails, in the kitchen & by the pool.
Special thanks to Monique Della Penna (aka Momma Monique) who went way beyond expectation taking care of the team, Coach Jamie Tarling who kept the house under control & in chaos all at the same time & Coach Nicole Skimming who taught our hurdlers that you must get over the hurdle…every time…or else.
Details for the 2019 Arizona training camp will be available in August.
