RYS Summer Running Club:

Looking for something to do this summer?

Are you interested in learning more about running?

Are you interested in keeping in shape for a fall sport?

Are you looking to be part of a group of people that want to have some fun?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then our summer running program may be exactly what you are looking for. This is open to all kids 9 years of age through going in to 12th grade. It is open to all levels of runners, and to kids that have never run before. We are going to teach you about warming up, cooling down, and how to train properly. We will also participate in 2 open track meets, and a 3K/5K cross country race.

Registration for the upcoming season will open Feb 1st and last until May 13th.  Registration can be found on the RYS running Club site. It also gives instructions on how to mail your registration if that is what you prefer.

We are capping our numbers at 60 runners this year. I would say that with the amount of people we turned away last year, and the questions we have been getting already it will fill up quickly. If you want to guarantee your spot this summer please sign up as soon as you can.

The first practice will be Monday, June 5th and will run through the first week of August.

Practice times will be the same as last year -  5:30 to 7:00.
