Welcome to STRIVERS Running Club for Girls
For the 3rd consecutive year, the Jingle Bell Family Fun Run has SOLD OUT. Thank you STRIVERS for helping to spread the word. We look forward to seeing many of you running and thanks to those of you who are also volunteering on race day.
STRIVERS Spring 2014 Registration will open in February 2014.
We are an exclusive “running club” for girls. The entire focus of our program is on building a solid foundation for a healthy, lifetime habit of running.
The mission of the STRIVERS Running Club for Girls is to build a strong, confident, athletic, and community-loyal young woman. This is achieved through the process of training and completing a 5k Road Race within a supportive team environment.
The STRIVERS program is designed for 4th, 5th and 6th grade girls. Members become runners, experience the sense of accomplishment when they successfully complete a 5k, and learn the power that runners can bring to a community when they work together.
Within the STRIVERS Running Club for Girls (SRCG) your daughters:
STRIVE for athletic confidence through non-competitive workouts designed to gradually and safely build endurance to run or walk the 5k race distance. They exert themselves to do their best at all times and make every effort to prepare for race day. Their training is done within a supportive team environment that fosters friendship and camaraderie.
STRIVE for personal growth by attending motivational speaking presentations, nutrition seminars, and author-led discussion groups. This allows your daughters to strengthen their social skills, confidence and self esteem as young ladies.
STRIVE for community leadership by reaching outside of themselves and positively impacting the community they live in.
To date, the STRIVERS have:
Our program runs twice a year, Fall and Spring. We limit the number of girls we take in each session in order to make this experience rewarding for your daughter and allow us to maintain the intimacy of the group. Girls interested in STRIVERS should have some athletic ability and the desire to run. Please go to the The Program tab for detailed information and important dates. Information on how to register can be found under the Registration tab.
