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.
Our Financial Assistance Fund has provided the opportunity for thousands of children in need to participate in our programs.
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.
