The High Altitude Training Center
Welcome to the High Altitude Training Center in Alamosa, Colorado! The high altitude training center (HATC) is a new and exciting project that is one-of-a-kind in this country. It will offer a unique opportunity for college students at all levels. The training center is providing an HPPE (Human Performance and Physical Education) class through Adams State University on how to train at altitude and the physiological benefits of it. It will provide practical experience because students will be able to live in the on-campus apartments for the duration of the classes and train at 7,544ft above sea level. The costs for the camp include both the housing costs and the class costs. Come experience training at altitude and start your upcoming cross country seasons in better shape than you ever have before! All levels of runners are welcome!
