"I Can 26.2 It!" Youth Running Program 2020





We realize the the Covid-19 health issues continue to be evaluated and are a legitimate concern.  However, we also know that it is important for kids to learn, play and stay active.  Therefore, rather than just cancel the program like many others are doing, we will continue to monitor the information and make decisions we feel are best for the safety and well-being of our participants, coaches and volunteers by the end of June.  Please check out our Facebook page, Strider emails and this website for updates as we can.  Thank you for all of your support in the past and we hope to be running with you (and your children) soon!


Register your children for the incredible "I Can 26.2 It!"  

This program is designed for youth ages 5-12 and is a combination of running on their own and group opportunities. Our coaches will help inspire your young runners through games, encouragement and FUN!  Every week, the group gets together at some Milwaukee area landmark, plays some "warm up run" games, has a brief life-lesson talk and finally goes for a group run at their own pace to help build up the miles.  "Graduation Day" is at 9:15am on October 4th (LFM DAY!) as they finish the last 1.2 miles on top of the 25 miles already completed, as they pass through the finish chute of the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon.  You have to see the kids faces....PRICELESS!....but it costs only $25 for the whole program.
