The boys ran in parks and local trails around Flagstaff trying to improve on their endurance. Returning for their senior season at North Lincoln are Jared Campbell, Noah Carter, Miles Phillips, and Jacob Scott. North Lincoln graduates Jason Thomson, who will be attending the University of North Carolina and Alex Wulfhorst, who is headed to the Citadel, also attended.

The North Lincoln athletes joined Dylan Belles, a former East Lincoln High School standout and current Olympic trial marathon runner, on two of their runs. Belles shared his running and healthy eating habits during their workouts

Several college teams were also training at nearby Buffalo Park.

The boys hiked up Humphreys Peak, the highest elevation in the state of Arizona, and traveled to see the Grand Canyon during their stay.
