Current and Upcoming Ridge Runners TXC Clubs

Winter Running Club

Club Description:  

This session is for current 6th-8th grade athletes who are interested in training during the winter months. The 8-week club consists of 24 practices. The training emphasis is base mileage and strength endurance in the weight room. Races are not emphasized during this training phase. Running will be done outside in the elements. Wind chill is considered each practice and athletes run inside if deemed too cold to run. Required “winter wear” includes: hats, gloves, and some sort of mask for face/neck protection. 


 This club session will begin on January 13th and conclude on March 14th. A high-visibility club running jacket will be loaned to all club members in the order of registration (while supplies last). Snowshoes will be loaned to all club members in the order of registration (while supplies last). GPS watches (provided by club) will be used by some athletes to calculate pace per mile. Attendance at all practices is not mandatory. Back by popular demand this year is “Hot Chocolate Monday”. There will be a hot chocolate bar after Monday practices after our run concludes. Runners will have the option of “spicing” up their hot chocolate with additives such as candy canes, marshmallows, and whip cream. Please communicate any food allergy concerns. The club registration fee is $150 per athlete. On-line registration must be done on our website. There are no mail-in registrations. Payment must be submitted in either cash or check (written to Ryan Lantzer). Under no circumstances will refunds be granted.
