Teen & Young Adult program

This is a new program for teens and young adults who wish to run more regularly than offered with the regular program. In addition to the regular Verge Run Club seasons, there are additional group runs, which may continue between regular seasons. More time will also be spent on strength and mobility, and plans may be issued for the runners to follow.

We also aim to use the program to develop a community of support and inclusion within the Greater Boston running community. Our goal is to get runners in the community involved in the group runs, with some developing into 1:1 mentors to Verge runners. An app is being developed to help all communicate and schedule.
