847 Running Company Summer Running Camps

We are excited to announce that for the summer of 2021 we will be holding three different sessions of youth summer running camps serving kids entering preschool through high school. The age break down will be as follows:

Preschool - 1st Grade: At this age, all kids want to do is run around! They aren't thinking about it as a sport or a way to stay healthy. It's all fun and games and that's what we strive to keep it as during these sessions. All running will be incorporated into games and relay race type activities. We will go through a short warm up and stretch at the end. 

2nd - 4th Grade: We will start building off of the games done in the youngest group. Games will start to become more structured and some workout terminology will be used (ex. 400m for one loop around the park). We will try to look for some progress across the two weeks to celebrate like ran a full loop without walking! Looking to celebrate little victories to maintain interest in the sport.

5th - 8th Grade: This age group will be separated into two tiers: recreational and experienced. Recreational sessions will focus more on slowly building up distance and teaching about the importance of strength, stretch, and recovery. We don't want to over do it with those new to the sport. Experienced sessions are intended for those with experience running competitively through school or club or if they are competitive in another sport they should consider joining the experienced group. The experienced middle school group will be run similar to the high school group.

Each session is two weeks long and we will meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. You can sign up for one, two, or all three sessions! Times for each age group are listed below.  

A confirmation e-mail will be sent after sign up to get more information on the participant(s) to be able to properly plan out each session.
