LOCATIONS AND SCHEDULE

ADVENTURE RUNNING KIDS® is a 10 week adventure running program that runs in the Fall and Spring for kids aged 6 and up that builds stronger, faster and smarter runners and an appreciation of the environment. 

 

ADVENTURE RUNNING KIDS® combines trail running, navigation and cross country running into a fun and muddy eco-adventure that also teaches problem solving skills that are valuable in training, racing and life.
