New York City youth ages 8 – 14 can stay active at a new fall Track & Field program offered by City Parks Foundation and Randall’s Island Park Alliance.
Free weekly instruction will be offered at Thomas Jefferson Park in East Harlem for eight weeks, from October 3 through November 21, 2015. The Jesse Owens Track & Field program will introduce novice runners to distance running through runs from East Harlem to Randall’s Island Park.
Throughout the season, participants will learn how to pace themselves, proper running/stretching techniques and receive periodic talks on good nutrition habits. Beginners welcome!
