Camp Week 1 will meet outside the Danis Field House on SLUH's campus at 6:00 pm. The camp will end at 8:30.

All running during this week of camp will be down in Forest Park.

Camp Week 2 will meet at different parks around the area at 6:00 pm. Each day will end around 8:30 (by 9:00 on Thursday). The second week of camp focuses mostly on racing tactics and strategy and includes a pool party & cookout at the end of Thursday.

  • Monday: Queeny Park
  • Tuesday: Kirkwood Park
  • Wednesday: Central Fields of Forest Park
  • Thursday: Coach Flanagan's house

Summer Weights
Weight lifting is an essential part of an athlete's training regimen and it has been a key to the success of SLUH XC. Plus, it helps you look good at the pool! You are not required to come to every session, but we expect that you will come as often as you can on dates that do not conflict with a vacation. Dates: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays beginning June 10th and ending July 22nd.

To sign up for either week of Camp and Summer Weights, you can download the registration form here. You can mail it to SLUH (4970 Oakland Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110) or send it to Coach Joe Porter at

Wednesday Tempo Runs
Additionally, team members meet on Wednesday evenings in Forest Park for a weekly Tempo Run. This is open to anyone, free, and does not require advance registration. Contact Coach Porter for more information on the weekly tempo runs.
