The 2023 SMIRFs & STRIDERs Running Adventures

This Running Program is sponsored by Gulf Winds Track Club.  The program's goal is to provide opportunities for students in elementary, middle and early high school to improve their running skills and endurance.  The program is recommended for students age 6 and above who can run at least 1 mile.

  • The first day for the 2023 program is Monday, September 11, and the program ends on November 1, 2023.
  • Practices will be held every Monday and Thursday, weather permitting.  Runners should arrive by 5:00 p.m., and the sessions are approximately one hour.  
  • Drop off and parking are at Forest Meadows Soccer Complex, 4750 N Meridian Road, near the playground.  

Practices will include running in Elinor Klapp‐Phipps Park, which includes 670 acres of protected land along the bank and in the watershed area of Lake Jackson.  The trails are magnificent and home to many GWTC races (the Pot Luck Bash for example) and several high school cross country meets.  

Our goal is to teach kids the fundamentals of running and racing while reminding them how much fun running can be.  If we do it right, running will be a lifetime friend.
