Upstate Running Club Youth Team

The Upstate Running Club has filed its articles of organization with the state of South Carolina and the federal government to obtain its 501(c)(3) status as a non profit. Our goal is to bring our passion of running to the youth of the Upstate by providing FREE organized runs, training sessions, and racing opportunities throughout the year.
 
Without Limits Coaching service is the title sponsor of the Upstate Running Club teams and will be providing training for youth athletes this year! This year we are bringing youth training sessions to Christ Church Episcopal School starting on June 5th. The program will offer a 60 minute session lead by our sponsored coaches at Without Limits along with volunteer parent coaches. The program will be held every Sunday starting on June 5th at 6pm through Thanksgiving weekend. We will offer our youth runners a racing singlet, discounts at our local running store Run Inn, and discounted race entries to several events throughout the upstate. We as a team will also organize track and cross country races that are open to the public. We will be training for the Footlocker Championships held in Charlotte each year at McAlpine Park.
  • June 5th through Footlocker Championship in November (Footlocker is always the Saturday after Thanksgiving)
  • Sundays @ 6pm
  • Location: Christ Church School (Track and Athletic Fields)
    • Team Jersey and Team races are FREE 
      • All Go Green Events 1 Mile to 5ks (8 Annually)

Volunteers/Parent Coaches - Volunteer Sign Up Here

  • We have created a sign up sheet for every date this summer and fall. Feel free to pick a few practices you would like to attend as a volunteer or coach. We are seeking volunteers to help our staff of coaches moderate the various groups of kids. We are looking to host these weekly running sessions for kids ages 6-12 at Christ Church School. If you are more comfortable working with a small group that would be great. If you just want to make sure the kids get in line and help us transition to another activity that would be great as well!
