Appleseeds Youth Running Program

Planting the seeds for a healthy life

The Appleseeds Youth Running Club is a welcoming environment for elementary and middle school aged children, going into grades 1 through 8, to engage in the sport of running. Whether it be recreational or competitive, we hope to spark an interest in running that will last a lifetime. We aim to provide the groundwork for physical fitness as well as teamwork and sportsmanship.

“My son absolutely loves the Appleseeds running program! He looks forward to the summer so he can join his running club again. This program really helps kids to enjoy the sport of running while also learning techniques and fundamentals to grow as a runner. The coaches are so good with the kids and so encouraging to them. I recommend this program to anyone who wants to get their kids more active in a fun but also competitive environment! “
