About the Landsharks Running Club
The Landsharks Running Club develops young athletes in positive, safe, character-based programs. The focus is on having fun, competing against individual abilities, improving personal skills, being an encouraging teammate, making new friends, and promoting a healthy lifestyle. In the fall and winter, our athletes focus on cross-country and in the spring and summer our athletes learn the Track and Field events. We train parents, teachers, and past Landshark runners, who are now high school and collegiate athletes, to lead and coach our programs.
Since 2000, the Landsharks Running Club has provided over 30,000 children between the ages of 5-18, with experiences that benefit their physical and psychosocial health. Our Financial Assistance Fund has provided the opportunity for over 1,850 children in need to participate in our programs. The benefits of being a member of one of our clubs surpass the physical benefits and have been proven to teach children perseverance; goal-setting and other skills that help them succeed academically, socially, and as an athlete in numerous sports.
