Fall Run and Orienteering Program

The Fall TRAIL KIDS Program offers fun outdoor active adventures for kids ages 7-13 years old. Coaches keep practice both challenging and fun for kids while also teaching important age developmental motor skills. Youth are split into ability/age/gender coaching groups (U10, U12, U14). Youth gain both fitness, strength and ski specific technique while also enjoying some adventures outdoors! Each session will be a mix of trail running, relays, strength/agility, ultimate Frisbee, orienteering and and will also include the adventure running race series. The registration fee includes four adventure running races along with our fall celebration at Loppet Games Event!

At practice, youth will be challenged with the following activities:

  • Agility and strength exercises to develop age appropriate motor skills
  • Ski specific balance and technique drills to help prepare for winter
  • Orienteering skills
  • Adventure Trail Race Series provides competition and fun adventures in the woods!
  • Games, relays, ultimate and soccer mixed in throughout the sessions.
