2nd Recess Youth Running Program
2nd Recess is a youth 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that inspires young athletes and their families to lead active and healthy lives by introducing them to fun and fitness through running.
Our program promotes fitness, teamwork, and health education by utilizing our 3 P’s of success – Patience, Perseverance, and Positivity. Our dedicated volunteer staff of local competitive and professional athletes instill their passion and enthusiasm for the sport into the next generation of superstars!
What to Expect
All one-hour practices are led by our team of dedicated volunteer coaches who have experience as professional runners, marathon finishers, and collegiate competitors. A typical practice includes a dynamic warm up, fun run-based activities, and a cool down. Each practice ends with an inspirational topic and healthy snack.
Your children will come away from 2nd Recess with a basic understanding of healthy exercise habits, nutrition, and a new sense of curiosity for the sport of running. We look forward to getting to know you and your child over the course of the season!
2nd Recess is held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. alongside the San Diego Track Club adult training group. 2nd Recess holds three (3) twelve (12) week seasons a year. Seasons run from February-April, June-August, and October-December. Families are welcome to join at any point during a season.
