Park City youth are ready to run
Newer program hopes to carry momentum into summer
June 6, 2017
Park City Running Club has hit the ground running, literally. Founder, Coach and Executive Director Rachel Taylor launched a pilot program in May that trained 38 youth runners in 4th and 5th grade. With the Spring Session complete, summer registration is now open to youth runners, ages 9-14.
"We all know Park City is bursting at the seams with amazing athletes and countless youth sports programs," Taylor said. "Yet, an organized running program for kids did not exist. So, I created Park City Running Club and this summer is our first full-launch to the entire community."
Taylor, along with Park City High School coaches Steve Cuttitta and Liis Rametta, will offer three practices per week, all summer long. The practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Park City High School's Dozier Field (10:30-11:30 a.m.) and Wednesdays at Upper Trailside Park (5:30-6:30 p.m.).
Runners will train in track and field, trail running, endurance and speed-work.
Summer registration offers two sessions: June 13 to July 6 and July 11 to August 10. Each session costs $85, which includes a t-shirt and four Twilight Race Events. Register for both sessions and save $10 ($160 total). Register any time this summer at http://www.parkcityrunningclub.com.
