"Our daughter has always been athletic but hadn't really found an activity she enjoyed until she started with UCRC. We've been thoroughly impressed with the organization. Each of the coaches, from the head to the assistants, are ideal. She always returns from the sessions raving about her coaches. This is the only activity she has never complained about. We have really enjoyed the confidence and joy that this club has given her over the past few months."
"I have two boys, 10 & 12. UCRC is one of the best decisions we've made. Coach Stone and his team are simply fantastic. He makes running fun for the kids, and he is an excellent communicator/motivator. He is more than a running coach; he's a great life coach. Meetups are well thought out and carefully structured. The boys get a variety of workouts. My kids were not runners before they started UCRC. Now they are proud of their progress and would join me running on the weekend. I strongly recommend UCRC!!"
“Our daughter loves to run and with running club she’s not only learning the proper way to run, but more importantly learning stretching techniques and exercises to protect her from getting hurt, ensuring years of running.”
“UC Run Club is the best! Our daughter went to practice on day one with zero experience running and not knowing anyone in the club. Running days are now her favorite days of the week! Great coaches and a family like atmosphere.”
