Do you have an aspiring runner interested in learning more about the sport?  Y Runners is designed for kids, ages 6 to 14, who wish to get intentional individual training in endurance, cross-country, running technique, and sprinting.

Y Runners will meet twice weekly for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. Athletes are introduced to form and technique as well as a program designed to increase stamina. Runners will aim to build confidence and enhance endurance. 

Runners are separated into age-appropriate groups for trainings and workouts. 

Athletes will participate in two cross-country meets, as well as time trials throughout the season to measure their individual improvement. 

Like everyone, we are keeping up with the latest North Carolina and CDC guidelines around COVID safety. Please be sure to check our Youth Sports Health and Safety page for the latest information.
