Summer Running Club for Boys and Girls

Join the Newton Summer Running Club 2018 and put in some fun mileage with friends and running experts this Summer! Endurance running is good fitness for all other sports and is just a fun thing to do on its own if you learn how to pace and get your muscles used to doing this! It may even improve your mile run time by next Fall! We will build running specific muscles through longer runs in varied places, fun running games and activities. This is about personal accomplishment, not competition within the club. 

Time frame: Monday June 4th is start date, Wednesday August 22nd is end date. Not required to attend all practices. Do what fits your Summer plans. 

Competitive Events: Track Meet event for all ages (varied distance and relay options) on Friday July 27th (evening) and a Cross Country event for all ages(1 and 3 mile options) on Saturday August 25th (morning). Other friends and family members may also participate in these events for just $5 each. Middle school boys cross country and track coach Chad Gavis will also be assisting regularly this Summer to allow us to break the big group into smaller groups based on ability levels. 

Tentative dates of the organized races: Saturday July 1st, Saturday July 29th, Saturday August 19th. Each would start at 9 AM. 

What you need: running shoes, comfortable running clothes, water bottle, good attitude! 

What you will get: supervised running education and fitness, a t-shirt and entry into both planned competitive events 

What it costs: $30 per child, payable to Robyn Friedman. Any funds made over and above expenses to run the club will be donated back to the Newton PTA “Open Your Heart Fund.”
