Walton Youth Cross Country runs in the Fall from August through early November.  We provide coaching for all running levels from the beginner to the seasoned runner.  For athletes who are more competitive and looking to train to continue to the high school and/or college level, our coaches encourage those athletes to continue with the elite regional and national competitions in the winter.

Join us and amp up your summer with a healthy, physical challenge that will get you outside staying active and crushing your running goals. Set your own mileage goal or take on the 100 mile challenge set by the Summer Sizzler. 


Welcome to Walton Youth Running Club

The Walton Youth Running Club is a track and field and cross country running club for girls and boys in elementary, middle, and high school. We aim to help kids become lifelong runners!

Our club is designed to introduce kids of all abilities to sprint and distance running and field events by providing an experience that is fun, social, educational, and competitive. We participate in USATF sanctioned meets. Walton Youth Running Club athletes have competed in and won select championships at the Area, State, Region and National levels.

Our club has two seasons: Track & Field in the spring and Cross Country in the fall. The Walton Youth Running Club is largely comprised of students who are zoned to attend Walton High School, but athletes do not have to attend a feeder school to participate. The success of our program is due to the dedication of our athletes, the commitment of our volunteer coaches and the strong participation of our helpful parent volunteers.

Our Goals

To provide a safe environment where athletes can develop and grow.

To improve the physical and mental capacities of our athletes.

To build lifelong runners!!
