Cross Country Comes to Needham Track Club
The Needham Track Club is beginning a Cross Country program. Open to children age 7-14, the program will run on Sundays at 11:00 - 12:15 from August 28 - November 6, 2016 (November 13 is a rain date) alternately at Olin College in Needham and Elm Bank in Wellesley. Runners will be coached not only with their running but also on timely topics such as healthy food choices, best running shoes for you, and safe running.
Runners will be placed in groups depending on ability and goals. The program is suitable for those serious about their running and interested in running in Cross Country meets as well as those with a more casual interest who want exercise and to learn more about running.
Runners can run in various meets throughout the season though we will also hold our weekly Sunday session for those who may not want to run in meets.
A typical Sunday session might include
- Discussion on key topic such as
----- Food and nutrition
----- Running safely
----- Getting the right pair of shoes
----- Basic running training 101
----- Everyday exercises
- Warm up, flexibility, and mobility
- Technical skills training
- Fitness training
- Healthful Snack
