The Youth Program is an opportunity for athletes to improve their endurance and coordination all while having fun and making friends.
Practices will be held at F and M Track in Lancaster, PA
Come out and run to have fun!
Do you have a child who loves to run? Maybe they just finished up their cross country season and want to stay fit for track.
Join RUN717 coaches and local youth runners for 8 weeks of supervised running. This experience is designed to develop a passion for running, and sessions will be lead in a fun, exciting, environment.
Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:45 – 5:45 pm. They begin on October 24th and end on December 14th.
Athletes will learn basic drills and exercises designed to enhance motor skills and running efficiency. They will develop endurance and speed through a variety of games and age appropriate workouts.
This program is meant for all athletes in 5th-12th grade. We will adjust the program to accomodate the different abilities and split into two groups.

We’ve put together an amazing team of coaches that want to help you have fun and improve your fitness. A typical session in the youth program will have a warmup, game, workout, longer game, then exercises.
Ashley Solenberger pulls from a wide variety of experiences to develop his coaching philosophy. He grew up swimming, and playing soccer and basketball. As an adult he teaches elementary PE and has coached soccer at the high school level. Athletically, he has competed in triathlons from the sprint to Ironman distance often placing in the top 10 overall. Over the last 8 years, he has focused mostly on running again competing at a variety of distances from the mile to the marathon. He enjoys a speed session much more than a long run but appreciates the benefits of both.
Brenda Hodge is the founder and CEO of RUN717. She currently coaches over 40 adult runners, but misses the fun and energy of working with the youth. She hopes this program will help support local school programs and encourage athletes to be lifelong runners.
All coaches have required clearances to work with youth.
