Cross Country High-Altitude Campaign

Cross Country Altitude Training Camp History

            UC San Diego Cross Country scholar-athletes have been visiting Mammoth Lakes for altitude training since 1992, an idea made reality by former long-time Triton head coach Ted Van Arsdale. For over 25 years, Triton scholar-athletes have experienced an all-encompassing camp entailing personal and athletic growth, team bonding, building communication skills and making memories that will last for a lifetime. Altitude Training Camp at Mammoth Lakes will forever hold a special place in the hearts of former Triton scholar-athletes. Help us continue this Triton tradition in making the altitude training camp possible for current scholar-athletes.

The Reason and Benefits to Give Today

            With travel costs rising every year, it has been increasingly difficult to fully fund our altitude training camp at Mammoth Lakes. Over the past ten years, we have seen the cost of camp double, putting a strain on our budget.

            By helping to send a cross country scholar-athlete to camp, you will personally have an immediate, direct and profound impact on the experience the Triton scholar-athlete has while at UC San Diego. Like many Tritons who have experienced altitude training camp before them, you will be offering a scholar-athlete the chance to learn life lessons taught through sport, a chance to grow personally and athletically, and a chance to bond with their teammates, forming a high caliber, nationally ranked team. This gift will go well beyond their time at camp; it will be a memory and experience they will cherish years after they receive their diploma.

Please Give and Share

Please consider giving to the “2019 Triton Cross Country Altitude Training Camp” campaign. Your gift is tax-deductible, and every gift is greatly appreciated!

Please consider sharing our project with your family and friends on Twitter and Facebook. We'll be trending with the hashtag #TritonAltitudeTraining
