Eastern Oregon cross country athletes and coaches will hold a Mountain High Cross Country Camp Aug. 11-14 at the Blue Mountain 4-H Center near Summerville.

Local high school athletes are invited. The cost is $60, and the camp is overnight so athletes are encouraged to bring a sleeping bag.

The camp is located in the shadow of Mount Emily and has loop trails around the camp as well as some which climb up the slope of the mountain.

Katlin Lafferty, a member of last year's elite women's cross country team at Eastern Oregon, is the camp director and Pat McCurry, a former Eastern assistant cross country coach, is one of the coaches.

Also coaching are National All-American cross country runners from Eastern, Kelsey Jones and Brian Crowl. There will be professional athletes offering instruction as well as runners from Boise State.

Sponsoring the camp are Dr. Bill Bond from the Center for Natural Health, Dr. James Kopp and Dr. Gregg Densmore.
