GWDRC is a non profit 501c3 organization.
Vision statement: To inspire a new generation of distance runners.
Creating a lifetime passion in Greater Williamsburg area youth for distance running through instruction, training, and racing.
Things we do:
a. Provide instruction and education in youth distance running.
b. Host youth cross country and track and field events to promote the health of young athletes.
c. Host special events in the promotion of youth cross country and track and field.
Since 2014, the Greater Williamsburg Distance Running Club (GWDRC) has provided a team opportunity for 3rd to 8th grade boys and girls who have an interest in distance running (3+ miles). Our youth club runners live in James City County, Upper York County and Williamsburg, VA, though the club is open to anyone in the region.
While GWDRC is open to 3rd to 8th graders, we do ask that youth runners be able to run a mile (without breaks) in under 10 minutes by their third practice with us.
We have weekly practices, run in local road races and participate in AAU Cross Country Meets. For 2019, we are excited to we will have a fall, and spring running session. We also are planning to hold 3-day introductory Pole Vault camp this summer for boys and girls older than 13 years old."
