I started this running group in 2011 to give Brooklyn kids an opportunity to experience running in a small supportive group environment . I created a group that was open to all levels of runners, with the only requirement being a desire to run.
My goal has been to create a flexible group that gives children the opportunity to learn the skills of running and to build a solid foundation of running with a focus on having fun!
In addition to building running skills, confidence and self esteem grow stronger as well.
I encourage the kids to work together as a team, support one another and do their best. Social skills are developed and friendships are created along the way.
This is a running program for children ages 5-12 years old.
Our classes are small so that each child can get individual attention.
All our running classes take place in Prospect Park. There are no scheduled meets. There are no race requirements but there are several races throughout the year that we can train for and run if that is our goal.
We run a spring and fall program that meets on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-5:30pm.
I always have at least one assistant who has a background in running and working with children
Generally the programs run for 10-12 weeks.
Our Saturday classes run throughout the year, weather permitting.
