Up and Running Master’s Swim Group – Up and Running Swim and Tri

Up and Running Swim and Tri is a United States Masters Swimming (USMS) group dedicated to swimmers and triathletes who want to improve technique, endurance and speed with coached workouts, while training with a friendly, motivating group. Athletes should be comfortable swimming at least 1,800 yards in a workout format (ie not straight swimming) in one hour. USMS membership is required of all swimmers, however you may visit as a guest by filling out a 30-Day trial form and signing a waiver.  Workout times are 5:00 am – 6:00 am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the West Carrollton YMCA.

Up and Running Jr’s

The summer 2015 program was another great year and our program continues to grow by leaps and bounds!  Thank you to all the coach volunteers that help make this program such a huge success!  Check back for 2016 dates!

Join the Up and Running Juniors running program this summer for children entering K-8th grade.  The program is designed to inspire the runner in each child by offering fun, dynamic running related games to increase fitness.

Come learn and enjoy the benefits of running through a positive and rewarding experience!  Your child will be grouped by ability to meet the individual needs of your child.  We have created three fun groups that we hope will suit your children’s needs based on their varying degree of development  The three groups are:

* Lynx – My child can run but needs frequent walking breaks during running. They can run less than 2:00 before needing a break. Sustained running for distance is new for my child.

* Servals – My child can run about a mile or 8-12 min. without requiring a break. My child has attempted sustained running for distance in a practice, race, or for fun.

* Ocelot – My child has successfully sustained running a 5K during the past year.
