What is Race Cats Elite?

The Race Cats Elite Running Program is for self-driven kids who are looking for more running and increased structure. The focus will be on proper technique, training plans and racing strategies. The Elite season extends into December when those kids who qualify for Nationals are able to compete.   Elite participants will compete in a racing circuit consisting of  2k, 3k, and 4k races!

Who is it for?

  • 8-15 year old runners who consistently place in the top 10 for their gender and age division at city rec. meets or middle school meets and who want a little more volume in their training and opportunities for racing.
  • Kids who have the goal of racing at the USATF State Meet and qualifying for USATF Junior Olympic Nationals.
  • Middle school cross country runners who want an additional training day during their season and want to continue training after their season ends.
  • Kids who play another sport but also love to run and want to compete at the highest level.

Additional costs to be aware of

USATF Youth Membership Required: $20/yr.

USATF Association Meet Fee: $10

USATF Nationals Meet Fee: $20

Race Cats Elite members who would like to join us at the Junior Olympic Nationals are responsible for their own travel arrangements.
