Will your child be attending middle school in the fall? Smith Running Academy is partnering with the Zephyrs running club to bring you a summer of running fun!

Starting June 14th, we will meet 3 days a week at various locations around Crystal Lake! Plan on a summer of fun at Veteran’s Acres, Lippold, Lundahl Middle School Track, and at Smith Physical Therapy and Running Academy! Athletes will start the summer with a binder and each week will learn a new skill that they can add their wheelhouse of knowledge. Athletes will be required to track their weekly mileage, learn how running is so much more than just running, and most importantly… it’ll be a summer of fun. Come ready to work hard, focus on yourself and your health, make some memories and friends.
