sweating and smiling

Rover Running Club

  • Rover Running Club is a running club for kids ages 7-14 who want to learn the basics of how to train for and compete in various running races. Although the curriculum is a little more rigorous than our Red Rover Kids, the culture of the club is not. Teaching kids to love running and be proficient at it does not have to happen in a strict, no frills environment. Kids will be running everyday at practice and have “homework”, but practices always include games and fun group challenges. Just like our younger kids running programs, your kids will be “sweating and smiling” when you pick them up!

Rover Running Club is a USATF sponsored club.

  • My daughter really learned to love running with the running club. Coach Josh is a great motivator and it’s easy to see that he loves sharing his passion of running with the kids.
