Teen Running/Cross Country Club, Ages 13 and up

Running Club is for students who are brand new to running, already have experience running and want to improve, want to stay fit for another sport, or just want to be fit and healthy. The class will begin with a warm up and stretch, then we will run along the park district trail behind CHAMPS, followed by a cool down. Expect to be outside running unless it is raining or extremely cold, in which case we will do an indoor workout. Bring water, weather-appropriate clothing, and comfortable running shoes.
