AT NYA

Upcoming Track and Field Programs

NYA Run Club

Come get out and run with us on Thursday nights at 6pm! Whether you’re a beginner, experienced runner, or anywhere in between, we want you to join our running community! Our run leaders will guide different groups based on pace levels and distance goals. We welcome all members of the community to participate (just need to sign a waiver). Meet-up spot is the patch of grass in between the 2 NYA parking lots.

NYA’s Executive Director Ian Yorty and “miles junkie” Keith Hoffman will team up as the run leaders for the inaugural Spring 2021 season. Between the two of them they’ve covered thousands of miles participating in everything from 5k’s to 100 mile ultra races. They love to talk training, gear, nutrition, goal setting and race planning, and are excited to share their enthusiasm with others. More than anything they just love getting out in nature and moving the body by putting one foot in front of the other.

Day/Time: Thursdays at 6pm

Whether you’re a track and field competitor, sports athlete, or recreational runner; running is a fundamental skill that is needed to perform. Efficient running is a learned technique that requires intentional practice.

The sum of these contribute to being a faster and more well-rounded athlete.
