• 6–7 p.m. Tuesdays (July 12, July 19 and July 26), Wilton Park — There will be a marked course of 400 and 800 meters, which will allow clear sight lines of those involved. Participants will be guided through different running strategies to develop speed and endurance.

• 7:30 to 9 a.m. Saturdays (July 16, July 23 and July 30), Norwalk Park — Distance training will occur in small groups on the trail. Supervision will be provided for safety. A light breakfast will be available.

Parents/guardians and other adults are welcome to participate in all events as well.
