You’ve signed up your child for cross country, read through our FAQ page and welcome email but you may have a few more questions about Runner2Runner cross country

We are super excited to begin our season next week and hope you and your young athlete(s) feel the same!

Our philosophy is to introduce running in a  safe, positive and supportive environment to young athletes!  How do we accomplish this? First, we ask our athletes to observe three simple rules.

  1. Treat others as you like for them to treat you.
  2. Keep hands to self
  3. HAVE FUN!

Our practices are progressive and designed to build your young athlete into a runner.  We use a variety of approaches; our coaches assess their team and implement Runner2Runner designed workouts that ensure our runners progress in a safe and systematic manner.  Running workouts, strength and conditioning, nutrition, race prep, and games are all part of our fall workout plan.

We invite you to stay and observe practice!  Part of the fun of our program is seeing our young athletes improve and accomplish goals;  our parents should share in their success!

And if you want to volunteer at a practice or two, please speak to your head coach.

Wishing all a safe and fun start to cross country.

Yours in running,

Melissa Hill

Founder and President, Runner2Runner
