Juniors 2023 will kick off on June 7th at 7pm at Forest Field in Centerville, OH. The program will take place every Monday/Wednesday from 6:45pm/7:00pm-8:00pm and will conclude on July 19th with the program race/celebration with a rain date of July 20th. After the first night the Lynx and Serval groups will meet at 7:00pm and the Ocelots will meet at 6:45pm.
Registration available online or in store. Cost for one child is $60.00 and each additional child in a family is $30.00.
Your child will be grouped by ability to meet individual needs. We have created three fun groups that will suit your childrens 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 minutes before needing a break. Sustained running for distance is new for my child.
Servals: My child can run about a mile or 8-12 minutes 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.
Our run/walk program is a group led run/walk interval workout that will help you train for a 5k! You should be able to walk briskly for 30 minutes prior to starting this program. We encourage participants to exercise at their own comfortable pace. New runners will benefit from the support and motivation of a group. Current runners just looking to get back into shape will benefit from the accountability of a group! Now, you no longer must be intimidated by running and your fitness journey! Our spring training group is in full swing, stay tuned for our summer and fall programs.
