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.
For 2020, we are expanding Appleseeds to include both elementary and middle school age groups! We will have two sessions available at each practice. The first session is geared towards elementary aged kids (10 and under) and will be a more laid-back, game-based curriculum. The second session is a more structured, training-based program aimed at the middle school age group (11+). The age breakdowns are just a guideline, you are welcome to pick the session that makes the most sense for your child(ren). Feel free to reach out to Club Director, Lynn Marbach, with any questions.
- Session 1: 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm
- Session 2: 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
All Appleseeds members will receive:
- Guidance from our experienced coaches
- Two 1-hour practices a week
- Asics team singlet (aka jersey)
- Appleseeds t-shirt
- Special discount on running shoes
- Entries for our 3 races during the season
We will be running one cross-country race, one road race, and one track race.
Appleseeds Youth Running Club practices take place at Shoaff Park, located at: 6401 St Joe Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46835. We will meet each Monday and Wednesday beginning June 8th.
