Mini Mermaids and Tritons Running Club

The Mini Mermaid Running Club, is a unique running club for students ranging in age from 5-15 years. Our goal is to help build self-esteem, teach healthy eating and living skills while giving our students a chance to fall in love with running, moving their bodies and experiencing the satisfaction of crossing a finish line.

 Mermaid/Triton practice is on Mondays & Wednesday's from 2:45p-4:00p.  We practice rain or shine.  Watch for us at our annual Walk-a-thon fundraiser at Live Oak School.   Our big race will be Sunday, April 10 on West Cliff Drive, it is part of the Santa Cruz Half Marathon.
