10/29/18: Sadly our 2018 year has finally come to an end. What a fantastic year we had!!!! Thank you to all the coaches who gave so much of their time. Thanks to you parents for getting the kids to practice on time and a huge thank you for allowing us to get to know your wonderful children! Stay tuned here for updates as I receive them on our indoor winter season. As already mentioned, IF we are accepted by St. Anthony’s high school, then our winter program will start on Martin Luther King Day, January 21, 2019 for 8 weeks from 5:30-6:30pm. The cost is $85/athlete. No individual USATF membership will be required for 2019. NRC is a club member of USATF and a member club of RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) both of whom provide us all the necessary insurance requirements we need.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10/20/18: Our fall season is quickly coming to a close. We end the season on 10/28 and will take a break for a few weeks. We are presently in discussion with St. Anthony’s high school to offer an 8-week indoor workout for aged 10-14 year olds who are interested. It would be held on Mondays from 5:30-6:30pm from the end of January through March. For those of you on Facebook (a “closed group”--limited to present and former participants of the program), information will be posted there and here as well. There will be limited openings as per requirements of St. Anthony’s. I’ll post information as I receive it.
