© Copyright - 2012 - Athletics Illustrated Cameron Levins’s form is coming around just in time for him to compete in the 2012 Canadian Cross Country Championships. Levins’s form was off as he suffered from an illness around the time of the Olympics, which may have been caused by a combination of a heavy training and frequent high-level racing. However, his famous big mileage training program, which included running volumes of up to 240-kms-per-week, paid great dividends.

© Copyright - 2012 - Athletics Illustrated Opinion Cameron Levins of Black Creek, British Columbia (on Vancouver Island) is one of the classiest athletes in the NCAA. He also became the first student to win a national championship for his school, Southern Utah University. Levins trains at what is currently considered an unusually high volume of mileage. It works. His lower mileage competitors trailed him - all of them. "To win at any level in any field and then be consistently humble about the successes and victories is what true humility and sportsmanship is about. This is what makes a great athlete's legacy endure throughout time", says his Coach Eric Houle.
A pair of relay meets highlighted the weekend action for April 25-30th.

Cameron Levins Southern Utah University © Copyright – 2009 – Christopher Kelsall On June 16th, Black Creek’s Cam Levins finished 2nd over-all in the British Columbia Provincial 5k Road Race Championships on a challenging and hilly, double-looped course. He finished in the time of 14:53. Friday, August 14th he won a local 5000m event in 14:09 - The Black Press 5000. Interestingly, he ran faster during his summer build-up than he did at the end of his NCAA Division 1 track season. Following that August 14th performance in Victoria, B.C. he flew to the other end of the country to Prince Edward Island where he took in the Canada Summer Games 5000m and won in 14:23. He is on a roll. He even has his own official Cam Levins thread at the Comox Valley Road Runners site. Cam doesn’t seem the type to question what works for him. When I asked him specific questions about his training, he said, “honestly, I don't know a lot about different training philosophies. I've just put my trust in Coach Houle and the program, and so far it has worked out pretty well. I do around 100 miles-a-week and I run every day.”
