There are several options for payment for the program to allow for flexibility. We strongly advise that brand new runners choose an option that allows for them to attend 3 days a week initially as their bodies adjust to the rigors of distance running.

First Day is Free!

All new runners have the chance to sample the program free of cost for one day to see if they enjoy it

Participation Levels and Cost
*Watermelon Level - $250
This is for a returning runner who knows they will be around for most of the summer and will be attending all 7 weeks.

*Cutie Level - $180
For 20 days of summer running spread in any way you choose over the 7 weeks, perfect for a new runner coming around 3 days a week or a student who is gone for several weeks of the summer.

*Cherry Level
$50/week or $11/day
This would suit someone brand new who wasn’t sure they wanted to commit to more than a week or a few days - this can later be applied to Cutie level if the student wants more

For those interested in attending but the cost is prohibitive please email Coach Ruth at as bursaries are available.
