The official drawing will take place within one week of the deadline and the prize awarded to the individual during the week of Camp. There will also be a Saucony representative available the week of Jim Ryun Running Camp to allow the Campers to test run Saucony shoes and to offer a 20% discount on shoes purchased.


you know what it is to work hard, push to the next goal, run through the pain. your feet take you far, perhaps before your friends are even out of bed. Determined, Trail blazers. Dreamers. Future champions.  

Do you wonder how far running can take you?

You love the sport and now you want to BE something in the sport. You want to be a standout, make varsity, run faster times, have a breakthrough cross country season. You have dreams and goals but the going is slow and the doubts are many. You work hard. Extremely hard. But you're still not up "there." Those top finishers - what did they do?

What did they do that I didn't?  

Odds are they have the same dreams - and doubts - that you do. But what they may have that you don't is knowledge. Do you understand why you train the way you do? What the purpose of each workout is? And, when it comes down to it, do you trust the training that you have put in when you step up to the starting line? There is confidence and clarity to be found in knowing that you have done the big, and the little, things well. 

Do I have what it takes to accomplish my goals?

You have the determination and the desire, but do you have the right tools to succeed and do you understand how to use them? Even the best training principles, when not understood or applied incorrectly can lead to anything from a season plagued with injury or to frustratingly few results. Somewhere in between is a training sweet spot that few know how to find at a time in their running development that really matters. Competitive running has a "shelf life," and many wonder "am I making the most of what I have right now?"  

There was once a boy in Kansas with some of the same questions


He knew what it was to have big dreams. He wanted to BE someone and running provided opportunities he could never have imagined. Challenged and inspired by his coach Bob Timmons, he learned the risks and rewards of giving his all. 

The "master of the mile" set one of his six world records on June 23, 1967. The teenage Olympian was Jim Ryun and the record he broke was thought to be unbeatable.

“Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win!” 1 Corinthians 9:24
