What is Race Cats Elite?

Race Cats Elite is designed for kids who have some experience with running and want a little more mileage or structured training. Maybe they have the goal of competing at the USATF State meet and qualifying for USATF Junior Olympic Nationals.

Race Cats Elite can be registered for in addition to your child's participation in the Race Cats elementary school program, middle school cross country team, city rec. program, or any other sport. Or Race Cats Elite can be registered for separately. If your child is ONLY participating in Race Cats Elite during their fall season, we suggest that they also run on their own or with a friend once or twice a week in addition to their Race Cats Elite training.

Race Cats Elite practices will be twice a week from Sept. 3-Dec. 14th, 2019. Registration for Race Cats Elite includes free race bibs for 3 chip-timed Race Cats races and opportunities for more racing with other USATF clubs throughout October and November. (The Fall USATF schedule will be posted in Sept. 2019)

USATF-Youth race distances are as follows:

  • 8 and Under (born in 2011+) race a 2K (1.24 mile)
  • 9-10 years old (born in 2009-2010) race a 3K (1.86 mile)
  • 11-12 years old (born in 2007-2008) race a 3K (1.86 mile)
  • 13-14 years old (born in 2005-2006) race a 4K (2.46mile)
  • 15-18 years old (born in 2001-2004) race a 5K (3.1 mile)

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. If you already have one that is valid for 2019, you do not need to pay for this part of registration.

Race Cats Elite members who would like to join us at the Junior Olympic Nationals on Dec. 14th in Madison, WI are responsible for their own travel arrangements.
