Join us in promoting health, community spirit, and fun by participating in this year’s City Heights Runners 5K and Fun Run through Urban Life.
Middle schools in City Heights lack athletic development programs, so City Heights Runners provides a crucial first exposure to athletics for 100+ urban youth annually. We use running as a safe after school activity for youth in City Heights, providing a means to develop positive friendships and personal character, as well as to enhance the overall health and well-being of student-athletes.
The high school program offers tutoring, off-season fitness opportunities, and leadership development that has helped the Hoover and Crawford High School Cross Country teams become among the best in the city. These students are learning to set demanding goals, to believe in their abilities, and to trust their coaches—all skills they will rely on in their in college years and beyond.
