The New Canaan Running Club is a nascent program for youth boys and girls ages 9 to 14 in and around New Canaan. This community running club and competitive team is founded on two main goals: instill in youth a love for running and develop youth for future competitive running.
The New Canaan Running Club completed a successful inaugural Spring 2012 session with more than 40 athletes participating in the club and competing in several track meets and one road race. Both coaches and parents witnessed hard work and commitment to running, and with that came tremendous growth and improvement as well as increased appreciation and enjoyment.
We would like to thank New Balance New Canaan for their sponsorship and support, the coaching staff, and the various town bodies that permitted us to use the high school track and Waveny Park for practices. Our debut season was a success, and we look forward to an even better Fall 2012 season.
The Fall 2012 season begins its 8-week session on September 10 and ends on October 31th. Practices are three times per week: Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:00 to10:00 am only when there is no meet. Children ages 9-14 are eligible to participate, and the cost will be $125 per athlete.
We will soon have registration capability on our website. Until then, please register through either: New Balance in New Canaan (128 Elm Street), or email Melissa Cutler at email@example.com.
Membership in the New Canaan Running Club entitles each child to highly qualified coaches and individualized goal setting and training, paid registration fees for meets and races attended by the club, USATF insurance coverage for practices and meets, New Balance New Canaan singlet uniform top and discount on New Balance New Canaan athletic shoes.
Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to having your children join the New Canaan Running Club this fall!
