Since returning from Oregon, and the Prefontaine Classic Matt and I have been working with intermediate and high school runners. Group runs, and daily workouts provide opportunities to gain strength, and endurance. The Rowdy Mountain Track Club participated in our first event of the summer, the Hersheys Track Meet Friday, June 15th for youth runners up to 8th grade. Valley Isle Road Runner had an open meet running at the same time so high schoolers, adults and masters could race.
The club did so well at both open and Hersheys events. Read more on mauirunner.com about Hershey's.
