R3's half mararthon coach Chuck Jones

It is great when you get started running or are just returning to running to have a group to meet with and share with, this gives you accountability and motivation. If you would like to attend the group feel free to come out and join us. We meet every Thursday rain or shine on the West Side of the APSU track at 5:30pm.

YOUTH GROUP: More to come.

This group is a basic start for your young runner or can help a more advanced runner, 12 and under. The main goal for this group is to keep healthy, get motivated and enjoy being active. Once the team gets developed, we will open it up for advanced instruction for the older children. It will be a lot of fun. Included is internal running meets and meets with other youth programs in Clarksville and beyond, we are developing that schedule now.
