The Marshfield Road Runners Youth Track Club (MRRYTC) is a non-profit organization based in Marshfield, Massachusetts, which offers instruction and competition in Cross Country, Track & Field and Road Racing to boys and girls of all abilities up to the age of sixteen from the South Shore and beyond. The MRRYTC offers young runners an organized, low cost team environment based around personal individual goals.
Marshfield Road Runners Youth Track Club is well known for hosting the highly successful Summer Youth Track Series. Summer 2018 will mark the 43rd year of the Series!
Track races will be held each Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm for eight weeks beginning June 20, 2018 through August 15, 2018 (no races 4th ...of July) at the Marshfield High School Community track behind the Martinson Elementary School.
On odd weeks, kids can run a 100M, 400M and mile/two mile; adults and high schoolers run a mile or two mile. On even weeks, kids can run a 200M, 800M and mile; adults and high schoolers run a mile. The 3 and 4 year olds only run the 50 & 100 each week.
Back again this year is a toddler 1 and 2 year old 20 meter race that will start promptly at 6:00!
Following the toddlers, we will then begin with the 3 year old girls running the 50M race, followed by the 3-year-old boys in the 50; then the 4 year-old girls, then 4 year-old boys. After that, the kids are split into groups by age into two-year increments and gender (Depending on numbers, the older age groups may be split as well). We continue in this way up through high school age.
The All Ages Mile/Two Mile usually starts between 7 and 7:30 PM. Mom and Dads, don’t forget to wear your running shoes!
Entry is free, but there is a collection for donations to help us defray the costs of ribbons. There are T-shirts available for sale for only $10.00. Every child gets at least one ribbon. Records are kept and the names of the first three in each event are published in the Marshfield Mariner newspaper and on this Facebook page.
We are in need of volunteers. Great volunteer opportunity for High School students! If interested, please email [email protected]
Rain cancels the event due to track safety. Cancellation announcements will be made by 4:00 PM on the Youth Track Facebook page.
