Welcome to Walton Youth Running Club

Our Programs

Registration for Fall Cross Country is in May and Registration for Spring Track and Field is in December.

2024 Track and Field Registration is closed. See our registration page for details. We encourage you to follow us on social media so you are up to date on future registration dates. 

Season Schedule

We run a cross country season in the fall and track & field in the spring. 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 (cross country) and summer (track and field). 

During the developmental season, all kids are welcome at three practices per week and to participate in as many of the developmental meets as we have that season. The goal of our developmental season is safety, improving, and FUN! 

Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00 and Sundays late afternoon. Meets are typically on Saturdays and will be announced at the start of each season.

Volunteers

We love our volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering as a coach, register here. We also have opportunities throughout the season for meet volunteers and other administrative tasks.

Who: Any adults who share an interest in kids and running--no prior experience necessary! New coaches are paired with experienced coaches and all abilities from beginner to advanced are welcome. Our Head Coaches will ensure that all volunteer coaches are trained and ready to coach our young athletes. We always need admin help and leadership. Admin roles can be filled largely remotely from home, in addition to helping out at some meets.

Why: All coaches have a guaranteed spot on the team for their children. New coaches get a 25% discount for their child’s registration and returning coaches get a 50% discount. Head coaches will receive free registration for their child’s registration.4)
