Further. Faster. Stronger.
Riptide Running Cape Cod believes running is for everyone. Running fosters community while simultaneously fostering individual growth.
Whether your goal is fun and friendship, fitness for other sports, setting a personal record or competing at the national level, we will guide your every step.
RUNNING CAPE COD is a competitive youth running team for ages 10* - 18 here on Cape Cod, led by Head Coach Justin Torrellas ( USTAF-certified and former Team USA member - modern pentathlon) and his team of experienced coaches.
The main focus of our Fall Session is to prepare runners for USA Track & Field's Junior Olympics Cross Country series, which starts November 17 in Smithfield, RI, and concludes with Nationals in Madison, WI on December 14.
Our fall session begins on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 and ends on Tuesday, December 10th, 2019. Groups meet at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:00 PM, and Saturdays from 9:00 to 10:30 AM. Additional workouts will be provided for runners to complete on their own, and can be submitted online. Because practice ends around twilight, runners this year will be required to bring headlamps to practice. Headlamps can be purchased for under $20 at Amazon (click here)
While we strongly recommend that athletes attend some team sessions, we understand that other teams, holiday travel, and physical distance will make this difficult in some cases. Most of the workouts will be posted online, and we have an online system for submitting these to Riptide coaches.
Registration fee is $200 ($160 for early birds), which includes in-person coaching, online coaching, and race registration fees. Uniforms are a source of pride for our runners, provide safety and identification, and are required for all Riptide athletes. The three-piece uniform is $50. Financial aid is available.
RIPTIDE RUNNING CAPE COD runners have qualified for the USATF Junior Olympic Nationals in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. In 2018, we had our first All-American (top 25 in the US).
* Experienced runners under the age of 10 will be considered on a case-by-case basis. More info: firstname.lastname@example.org
