Nittany Track and Field club youth cross country program will be back this fall! We will be starting practice on August 23rd, 2021. The practices will be held at Tudek Park (400 Herman Dr, State College, PA), Monday through Thursday from 5:45 to 7:15 pm (attendance flexible).The regular fall season is currently planned through November 7th.

Registration is OPEN!

This program is open to kids 8-18 and is good for all levels of experience. It is a perfect starter for younger athletes who are just making their first steps in distance running, but it also offers rigorous training and competition opportunities for more seasoned athletes. If you wonder if it is the right fit for your kids, please check out the Q&A page which may answer some of your questions.

Throughout the season, we have a lot of fun practices and events planned, including park and trail runs, hill sessions, intersquad tournament, treasure hunt, and games of various kind. Our athletes will have opportunities to race at local all-comers meets and also travel to Regional and National cross country championships at the end of the season.
