What is the Competition Team?

The Race Cats Comp 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 would like to run at Nationals will have a chance to compete.  Expenses for any and all national meets must be paid by the athlete.  (We will not have a coach at Nationals, but will train up until the race)! 

Who is it for?

  • Kids who play another sport but also love to run and want to compete at the highest level.
