fb-ms-lrc-cc-04The Middle School program is open to students in 4th to 8th grade.  Parents and kids do not have to be LRC members for their children to run, however there is a $5 Lakeland Runners Club student membership available.

The Middle School Running Program is offered mid-June through the end of October, on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm.

Workouts will be held in various locations throughout Lakeland.  Some workouts will be speed-based workouts that incorporate stretching, pacing and race strategy, others will target building endurance to run longer distances.  Parents are required to stay at the location during the length of the practice.

Check the LRC Facebook group weekly about the meeting location and weather cancellations.  See that here.
