Still Time to join the New Hanover County Youth Distance Running Club

Members of the New Hanover Countny Youth Distance Running Club competed in the 30th Annual Tri-Span 5K & 10K this past Saturday. Practies days are: Monday & Wednesday at the Ashley High School Track 7-8:30PM & Saturday at the C.B. Rec. Center from 7:00-8:30AM

The New Hanover County Youth Distance Running Club is still excepting members. The Club is being held by Ashley High School Ciach’s: Shawn McKee Head Cross Country Coach, Ryan Hauck Head Track & Field Coach, and Claire Caldwell Head Varsity Girls Soccer Coach. A large crowd of over 60 kids from local Elementary School, Middle School and High School runners showed up for the 1st Practice to help improve not only their overall running, but also form, nutrition, and injury prevention. If you missed the 1st Practice and can’t make every practice throughout the season you can still be a part of the club. 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 Next Practice was held Saturday, July 7th at 7:00AM; meet at the Carolina Beach Rec. Center. 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. .
