FFA Elite RunnersCurrent and future elite runners are invited to apply for this dynamic group. H.A.R.E. (Help A Runner Excel) is not another development project, but rather an enrichment program.  As a metaphor for life, there will be hard work for all concerned. Talented athletes are encouraged to apply for assistance through the HARE program and successful applicants will be offered the opportunity to train on the FFA program through the support of sponsors and other interested parties. Join the club

FFA Junior RunnersWe believe that sports should be fun and fair, although to achieve success requires commitment and hard work. Some athletes will achieve success very quickly and for others it may take a bit longer. We don’t believe in pushing our runners at very young ages but rather in developing all aspects of the athlete in preparation for adult competition.  Early focus is on form and technique, agility, speed, acceleration, stamina, flexibility, speed as well as racing tactics.
