The inaugural Boston Sprint camp is offering four days of training and racing in Newton, Cambridge, and Boston, with training events in the morning and timed races in the evening, designed by National Team coach Erin Schirm. Lunch is included for three of the four days, featuring local and delicious eateries. All venues are accessible via public transit, eliminating the need for a rental car.
The final day features two OUSA sanctioned sprints at the historic Boston Common: Qualifier and Final. The qualifier will count as an OUSA ranking participation day, and the Final will provide full ranking points. The Qualifier will be run as heats, and used for seeding in the Final.
