New Hanover County Youth Distance Running Club Events

FREE For Grades K-12 (Ages 5-12 Must have Parent with them)

This Club is designed to keep kids in-shape throughout the summer months and get them involved in the sport of running. The Club will start meeting every Monday, but may ad another day; we will also be running in various road races in Wilmington.
The 1st Practice will be Monday, June 26th at 7:00PM; meet at the Ashley High School Track. Most practices will take an hour for grades K-8 and about 1-2 hours for grades 9-12. The Club will not meet on the 4th of July. The 1st Race we will do together will be the Tri-Span 5K & 10K held in downtown Wilmington Saturday, July 14th. Race time is at 7:00AM, so get there early to register or register online. There will be a 10K, 5K, and 2K, so everyone can get involved in the race.
All participants must bring their own water; none will be provided other than the water in the fountains around the school. Parents must attend if there child is 12 or under. Parents may volunteer to help out or just walk around the track. Workouts are geared toward the age or skill level of the athlete. If you want to volunteer please contact Shawn McKee at (910)233-3234 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
I would like to encourage everyone to keep tabs on the Wilmington Road Runner’s and its-go-time.com website for upcoming races.  As a group we will try to run: July 14th Tri-Span 5K with more races to be added.
