Fischer before running at Foot Locker Nationals in 2017
Camren Fischer from Fayetteville, Arkansas, was one of only a handful of athletes to race at both NXN and Foot Locker in 2017.
Fischer qualified for NXN by finishing seventh in the South Region and qualified for Foot Locker after finishing 10th in the South Region. The rising senior went on to finish 39th at NXN and 40th at Foot Locker in 2017. During the regular season, he was practically unbeatable with major wins at the 2017 Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival (15:06.00) and the Arkansas State Cross Country Championships where he won the Class 7A boys state championships. On the track this year, he ran 1:55.06 in the 800m, 4:13.03 in the full mile, and 9:18.35 in the 3200m.
With experience at both national cross country meets, he will be a threat this cross country season. Check out his training blog in the links below.
