Road Runners


Young Runners is the running team at PS/IS 30. It is open to 6-8 graders. Although it is a competitive team, the focus is on attendance, participation and effort of the runners. We compete in races around the city, Central Park, Prospect Park, Icahn Stadium to name a few. The distances of the races range from 1 mile to 10K (6.2 miles). The students also have the opportunity to participate in shorter “track meet” style races and attend running seminars throughout the year. Runners earn incentives in the form of clothing and other fitness gear from NYRR (New York Road Runners). It’s a great way to learn about running, get in shape, and be part of a team!
