Nike Running Camps Congratulates Five-Star Cross Country Camp Staff Members and Campers


San Rafael, CA: Nike Running Camps prides itself on providing runners with the tools necessary to become better athletes. Our running camps propel runners to the next level and prepare them for any challenge lying ahead. At the 110th annual Millrose Games this past Saturday, that notion ringed true.

Led by Nike Five-Star Cross Country Camp’s very own camp director Richard Furst, the Goshen Girls relay team placed third in the 3200m relay race on Saturday, February 11th. The Goshen Girls are currently ranked third in the United States. Two of the girls on the relay team attended the Five-Star XC Camp in the summer of 2016.

The story doesn’t end there, however. Kyle Merber, a senior counselor at the Five-Star Cross Country Camp, placed third in Saturday’s Wanamaker Mile race at the Millrose Games. The Wanamaker Mile is the biggest race of the event, and Merber was a mere second away from taking home the trophy. Merber finished with a time of 3:54.67.

Nike Running Camps expresses its sincerest congratulations to Kyle Merber, Richard Furst and the Goshen Girls relay team.
