This Club is designed to keep kids and their parents in-shape throughout the summer months and get them involved in the sport of running. The Club will start meeting every Monday, but may ad another day; we will also be running in various road races in Wilmington. The 1st Practice was om Monday, June 24th at 6:00PM; meet at the Ashley High School Track. Most practices will take an hour for grades K-8 and about 1-2 hours for grades 9-12.
All participants must bring their own water; none will be provided other than the water in the fountains around the school. Parents must attend if there child is 12 or under. Parents may volunteer to help out or just walk around the track. Workouts are geared toward the age or skill level of the athlete.
