Come RUN with us!

For girls and boys 6 – 14 years of age who want to experience cross-country running.  Our focus is on continual self-improvement and developing a love for a fitness activity that can last a lifetime. It’s your chance to run, jump, throw and learn a great sport!

Practice Dates: 2 practices per week, Tuesday and Thursday  6-7:30pm beginning September 5 and lasting through November.

Where: Catonsville High School Track (any location changes due to conflicting CHS sporting events will be announced, usually moving practice over to the CCBC Track)

Meets:  2-4 per month, most meets are on the weekends, usually Sunday afternoons (Baltimore, Howard, Frederick and Carroll Counties). These are open invitational meets, but all levels of experience are welcome. We expect runners to participate in meets, but understand everyone cannot make every meet.  Meets will start late September and go until late November with championship meets in December.

Each athlete is responsible for his or her own registration at the meet. The meet registration fees are typically $5-$10 to be paid on day of meet at the meet. (Registration starts at 11:30 AM and continues until race start.)  A uniform is required at every meet.

Qualifications and Championship meets:  The team is an AAU club and will participate in the AAU qualifier events. The team is registered with USATF and athletes interested in USATF qualifiers may participate, but individual USATF membership fees will need to be provided by parents.

Registration Information: Register online until August 9  at – https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/206191
Late registrations will be wait listed and considered on a case-by-case basis.

Participant Cost: 2019 Basic Fee:  $95.00 including AAU registration and uniform. ($65 if you already have a uniform that fits)

Other Details: A copy of your child’s birth certificate is required by USATF/AAU for proof of age before participating in any track meets. (Returning athletes have a birth certificate on file.)  Copies may be brought to the first practice, clear digital copies are acceptable as well.
