The Elite Runners Track & Field Club is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) youth organization serving members from several communities in the Central Middlesex and Union County areas. Male and female athletes in ages ranging from 6 - 18 and regardless of athletic ability or prior experience are invited to attend and participate in a year round program consisting of 3 seasons: Cross Country, Winter Track, and Spring/Summer Track. The Elite Runners TC program has experienced many successes since its inception in 2005, sending many athletes to National Championship competitions across the country, sponsored by the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) and USTAF (United States Track & Field) organizations.
This health and social development program uses current physiological and motivational techniques to 1) combat a sedentary lifestyle which often leads to obesity and poor health in adolescents and 2) enhance the social awareness of the athlete. We believe team membership builds pride, self esteem, respect, goal management, and leadership skills. We further feel that these important life-skills will encourage our athletes to become productive members of society.
