Kids Run the Nation (KRTN) is a year-around running program for young athletes ages 4-14. Our goal is to help young athletes enjoy the sport of running by improving their form, fitness and confidence.
Weekly practices include drills to improve running form, as well as strength and agility training.
Each week brings a new, challenging (and fun) workout . The workouts alternate between speed work and distance training (up to 2 mile runs). We help young athletes discover, and improve upon, their running strengths.
Every practice includes a running Game. Our favorite--Shark & Minnows (Can you win the "Silver Shark?" )
Each week, every athlete receives a colorful "Foot Charm" to add to their collection. Plus, our coaches award the coveted "Big Foot" for overall excellence in performance and sportsmanship to an athlete in each group.
