Youth Training Program

Back by popular demand... CARA's Youth Training Program!

Get your kids having fun on the run and give them the tools for a great fall racing season! Since 2012, CARA has been offering a comprehensive youth program for kids of all ages. The results have been amazing -- the kids experience great cross country seasons and have fun!

This program is designed to help your kids love running as much as you do. It's also designed to provide kids who've already caught the bug with a platform to keep them in shape between school running seasons.

There are three different programs, targeted at elementary, middle and high school age kids with age-appropriate activities and mileage. We have studied programs from Europe to bring an innovative and effective, but most importantly, fun program for your kids! We made a few changes based on parental feedback.

Please note, children must be CARA members to receive the member rate. Family and Youth memberships are available!
