US Sports Camps has scheduled Bill Kenley, author of “High School Runner (Freshman),” to speak at three of the Nike Running Camps this summer. The camps include: The Green Mountain Running Camp, Meriden, NH; The Carolina Distance Camp, UNC Chapel Hill; and The Smoky Mountain Running Camp, UNC Asheville.

“Funny, inspiring, distinct of character, and rich in detail, ‘High School Runner’ rightly belongs in the canon of other fine tales of the track. Kenley more than lived up to my standard with such books: it made me want to go out and run—fast,” reviews Neal Bascomb, author of “The Perfect Mile.”

Twice voted the most influential and inspiring teacher in his high school, Bill Kenley knows what makes a young adult audience tick. His debut novel is his fictional love letter to high-school cross country. Kenley is an award-winning high school and college-level creative writing teacher, a three-time Boston marathoner with a 2:47 marathon personal best, and has a 50-miler under his belt.

The goals of the Nike Running Camps are to stimulate a love for running and to aid runners in becoming better, faster and smarter athletes. They provide an educational and inspirational experience for middle and high school runners, all skill levels and abilities.

In addition to the Nike Cross Country and Track & Field Camps, US Sports Camps offers two Nike Coaches Workshops, running in conjunction with the Green Mountain and Smoky Mountain Running Camps. The clinics present special learning opportunities for beginning coaches, (and even veteran coaches), looking for a more scientific approach to coaching their cross country teams.

During all of the camp sessions, campers live the life of a collegiate athlete while staying in the dorms and training at the schools’ facilities. The Nike Running Camps offer the perfect opportunity for campers to focus on their specific event and learn from the knowledgeable and passionate staff.
