Northeast Kingdom Running Camp is thrilled to announce Amby Burfoot as our first guest speaker for summer 2015! The author, Runner’s World editor, and Boston Marathon winner will speak at both sessions.
Amby was Connecticut’s high school two-mile state champion in 1964 and went on to run for Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT), where he was a two-time cross country All-American. While still at Wesleyan—and only 21 years old—he won the Boston Marathon.
We invited Amby to NKRC because he connects so easily with runners of all ages and ability levels. His book, The Runner’s Guide to the Meaning of Life is one of our favorites, and we know he’ll lead a great talk and discussion.
Amby is set to speak during first and second sessions, both of which are open for registration. We look forward to seeing Amby at NKRC, and we hope to see you there, too!
