Run Urban For Kids Racing Team!

This program is for young athletes who want to enjoy the camaraderie of participating on a running team,  improve running skills, endurance and speed. Our certified coaches will offer fun yet challenging sessions for kids who are inspired to run competitively.  Kids do not have to have previous racing experience, but should be prepared and motivated to train in a focused and more intense way.


This is for kids ages 8-14. Three seasons will be held, the first of which is the Cross Country season which will run from Sept 7 through Nov 20, 2016.


Parents or Guardians will be responsible for ensuring that their student arrives at practices and meets. Unless otherwise indicated, each practice will begin and culminate at the UrbanAthletics store which is located at 1291 Madison Avenue in Manhattan.
