Gotta Run Kids 5K Program

GRK 5k Club

Our 5k program is perfect for anyone - no matter what your experience with running is!  We have several kids who are state-ranked, but we also have kids who have never run at all! We will work with each child's ability - with the end goal being to improve on where they started. Practices are differentiated between the various abilities and generally, everyone finds someone around their speed to run with.

Our lessons are held twice a week and each lesson will include: warm-ups, stretching, running, and core work. We always try to make things fun, so lots of games are included in the lessons. During the 8 weeks (7 weeks in winter), we will introduce the finer details of running which include, correct form, pace, breathing, foot-strike, etc. as well as work on speed, strength, form, and endurance. We finish off our 8 weeks with a 5k race. The kids are always so proud of their achievements when they cross the finish line!

For kids interested in developing their skills further, please ask us about our private coaching sessions.


We had both of our sons participate over a six year period.  GRK not only taught our sons how to stay in great shape by running, but also how to be a good teammate and the ability to motivate yourself and others.  GRK utilizes running to provide a sense of purpose, and the kids will have a built-in role model with Coach Greg.
