Appleseeds Youth Running Program

Mon June 15 - Wed August 5, 2020 Fort Wayne, IN US 46835 Directions

Appleseeds Youth Running Club

$95 Registration ends July 19, 2020 at 11:59pm EDT

Note: Due to Covid-19 concerns, we have shifted the start and end dates for the 2020 Appleseeds season by one week. Our season will now be happening Monday, June 15th to Wednesday, August 5th. We will be taking the CDC's recommended precautions including social distancing and disinfecting surfaces where applicable.

The Appleseeds Youth Running Club is a welcoming environment for elementary and middle school aged children going into grades 1 through 8 to engage in the sport of running. Whether it be recreational or competitive, we hope to spark an interest in running that will last a lifetime. We aim to provide the groundwork for physical fitness as well as teamwork and sportsmanship. 

For 2020, we are expanding Appleseeds to include both elementary and middle school age groups! We will have two sessions available at each practice. The first session is geared towards elementary aged kids (10 and under) and will be a more laid-back, game-based curriculum. The second session is a more structured, training-based program aimed at the middle school age group (11+). The age breakdowns are just a guideline, you are welcome to pick the session that makes the most sense for your child. You do not need to sign up for a particular session when you register and you can switch at any point in the season. Feel free to reach out to Club Director, Lynn Marbach, with any questions.

  • Session 1: 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm
  • Session 2: 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
