These are running practices and training sessions for Youth Runners. It is through regular running and practices (as part of registering for a quarterly practice) that Youth Runners build their fitness, endurance, and readiness to compete in races or other competitions. The love and enjoyment increases along with fitness. Practices may include warm-up runs, running games, relays, intervals, distance runs, and tempo runs. These are normally conducted at schools or parks in Claremont (see Calendar). Please see additional information on practices.
Group Training Runs
Occasional trail runs (such as Claremont Wilderness Park) will be scheduled depending on availability and participation of sufficient volunteer coaches and certified parent volunteers/chaperones.
Members may choose to register in Races, which are single events. Races are of various lengths, depending upon Participant's age and readiness, but are generally between the distances of 300 meters to a 5K. CRT's emphasis is on developing the love of running. Races become fun and exciting events in which RUNNERS learn to challenge themselves, discover their own abilities, and the races they enjoy. Races can be community events, events sanctioned by Road Runners Clubs of America, or USATF events such as the Jr. Olympics. Participation in USATF events may require becoming a USATF member, which costs around $20. Parents are responsible for transportation to/from races. For race costs, CRT only charges RUNNERS a nominal amount plus its costs (i.e. team entry fees).
Claremont Running Team is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
