Landsharks

We offer a non-competitive youth program to introduce running to young athletes
in a safe and fun environment.  The focus is on self-improvement, being an
encouraging teammate, and making new friends. The Fall Cross Country Series is a
fun running program led by coaches, parents and teachers and is open to students
in kindergarten through 6th grade.  Please remember to purchase a team race shirt
if this is your first season running.
