Marin Youth Dipsea Training Runs 2012

Tamalpa Parent,

In response to increasing interest, I am glad to introduce Tamalpa Youth Dipsea Training Runs. This program presents a great opportunity for young runners to become more involved in the sport by working with professional running coaches, as well as training with others of similar age and ability. These training runs would take place Sunday mornings at 10:00 and will begin and end at Ross Commons.

Training runs will take place 3 Sundays per month on trails surrounding Ross Commons. The remaining Sunday of each month, youth are encouraged to participate in Tamalpa Club Racing Series (TCRS.)

These runs will be led and organized by myself. I am a very experienced runner currently running for the Tamalpa Racing Club. I am also the Head Track and Field Coach at Marin Academy. Assisting me each week will be Marin Academy Assistant Coach Mike Lotter.

Trail runs will begin short, and at a relaxed pace. Intensity or distance will be increased each week with a plan to let athletes peak at the legendary Dipsea Race (June 10,2012). Children ages 10 – 17 are encouraged to join, and training groups will be divided according to ability. Though training is geared towards the Dipsea, even those that are not planning on running the Dipsea are encouraged to participate.

This is a 3-month program that will begin Sunday March 4th, and finish with the Dipsea Race on June 10. The cost is $60 per child per month for a total cost of $180.

Those interested should reply, using the the contact form below, with the name, age and ability (beginner, intermediate, elite) of their child. This program is contingent upon generating adequate interest, so please forward this information to other parents that may be interested. If you have any questions feel free to call me at the number listed below.

Happy Trails,

Levi Webb
