P3R Junior Running CampPowered by Kids of STEEL and Steel City Road Runners

Camp is recommended for students entering grades 4-7 during the 2018-19 school year.

P3R Junior Running Camp is the perfect place for your child to learn about running and have fun at the same time. Our coaches teach running form, pacing and technique, but we also want to have fun. We encourage team building, try healthy snacks and play games that will have your child laughing until you pick them up from camp.

Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt and FREE registration for the 2018 GNC Live Well Liberty Mile in July.
