DENTON - The 2016 men's and women's cross country teams are working to raise $4,000 to kick-start training for the upcoming season by training four days in the Arkansas mountains Aug. 17-21.

The purpose of the training camp is to train on tougher hills with cooler temperatures conducive to better preparation for the cross country competition that will begin 12 days later.

This would give the team a chance to build together as a team and instill a strong winning team culture. Reaching their goal of raising $4,000 would cover the costs for food, gas and accommodations at the Rocky Shoals Resort in Mt. Ada, Arkansas which is located by Ouachita National Forest where the team can train on miles of trails and dirt roads.
