Kids' Summer Running Club

Come Run With Us!

The Kids' Summer Running Club hosted by Ridgefield Running Company and Ridgefield Academy is the perfect opportunity for your child to learn age-appropriate running skills and have fun at the same time.

The running club will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30pm until 7:00pm beginning July 9 through August 1. Children ages 7 - 12 are welcome to register. During this 90-minute club, RRC coaches will teach running form, pacing, and technique - all while having fun! Children will learn team building, enjoy healthy snacks, and play games.

A registration fee of $80 includes water and a healthy snack during each session, as well as an ASICS Kids' Summer Running Club singlet.

The Kids' Summer Running Club will celebrate on the final club date (August 1) with a family fun run and game!
