Landsharks 2021 Spring Season

We are excited that Landsharks Running Club will be back this spring!!
Please refer to the Colorado Springs or Douglas County tabs for programs near you.
Please note: Unfortunately, with COVID-19 runners will not be able to join existing school programs due to cohort requirements. 

Protocols and procedures to keep Runners, Leaders and Families
safe during COVID-19:

● Each club/team will be broken into small groups (less than 15) to comply with the current COVID restrictions, as well as, Landsharks coach to runner ratio. Runners will remain with the same kids and the same leader/coach for the season. 

●Backpacks/snacks, and water bottles/hydration packs must be completely separated from others. Each runner should carry his/her own backpack with them to include a snack and water bottle that the runner is able to open independently.

● Runners 11 and older will need to wear a mask during stretching and instructions. Masks will not be worn while physical activity is occurring. Coaches/Team Leaders will wear a masks when not able to socially distance from their runners. 

CHECK IN/OUT PROCESS: Please be mindful to adhere to the socially distance guidelines when checking in/out runner(s) and respectfully ask that masks be worn by those 11 and older. Attendance will be taken at each practice in case contact tracing is required. 

If your runner(s) is feeling sick or has been asked to quarantine, PLEASE stay home. 

● Coaches/Club Leaders will self screen for symptoms and close-contact exposures before attending each practice. As with runners, coaches/club leaders will stay home if they feel sick or have been asked to quarantine. If necessary, families will be contacted should practice have to be cancelled and/or rescheduled. Please note: this will be based on a case by case basis during the season. 

● Landsharks coaches will send home any staff member or runner exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or other communicable illnesses, and testing will be recommended.  Appropriate isolation and exclusions requirements will be implemented  immediately for any coach/club leader or runner.  Should exposure occur, Landsharks will provide frequent communication with all families of enrolled runners impacted by COVID-19 at the school program/running club, the club’s responses, and all issues in accordance to the public health order.

● Landsharks Coaches/Leaders, will do their best to remain with the same group of runners and maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet, whenever possible. Hand sanitizing upon arrival, before eating, and at regular intervals throughout practice. Proper sanitization of equipment will be implemented.

● If a runner is symptomatic at club, he/she will be isolated immediately.  Guardian/parent will be called immediately and child will be sent home with guidelines on how to be tested, as well as follow up care.

The Landsharks Running Club, a Colorado Springs based non-profit, develops young athletes in positive, safe, character-based programs for those in Kindergarten through 6th grade. 

The focus is on having fun, competing against individual abilities, improving personal skills, being an encouraging teammate, making new friends, and promoting a healthy lifestyle. 

In the fall and winter, our athletes focus on cross-country and in the spring, our athletes learn the fundamentals of Track.  We also offer Summer and Winter Camps. We train parents, teachers and past Landsharks participants to help lead and coach our programs.

Since 2000, the Landsharks Running Club has provided over 100,000 children with experiences each season that benefit their physical and psycho-social health.

The benefits of Landsharks outweighs the physical benefits and have been proven to teach children perseverance; goal-setting and other skills that help them succeed academically, socially, and as an athlete in numerous sports.
