Who We Are

Kanata Mavericks is a free running club for kids in Grades 3 and up. We have created an inclusive, accessible, and fun environment in which kids are exposed to the sport of running and are inspired to maintain a healthy active lifestyle. Our focus is coaching kids through a variety of running workouts to increase their strength and endurance - all while having fun and building community. With our training program athletes will be prepared to various distances up to 5km. Complimentary bagels and chocolate milk are provided at the end of each practice. Practices take place at Somerton Park, in Kanata. Runners can come on out on the dates they can and will be supervised for the duration of the practice. There is no minimum attendance requirement. Come join us for smiles and miles!

Testimonials

“The feedback [from my son] was simple but so encouraging - he enjoyed his first practice so much that he can't wait for the next one. He loves being involved in something so fun!”

- Michelle H. Parent

“Allie has been running with Vanessa for a few months now. I have seen such a passion growing in her. This past weekend she ran her first 5K (many more to come I’m certain). If it wasn’t for the constant support and encouragement she receives from these amazing teachers, who dedicate their time so selflessly, who knows if she would have ever developed what will I’m sure will be a lifelong love of running. Allie is so eager to continue running with her team. I couldn’t be more grateful for the support she is receiving. These coaches are doing something very special here!”

- Sarah R. Parent

“[My daughter] really loved it today and came home super enthusiastic about running.”
