The Ocala Distance Project is a youth running club specializing in endurance events. In the past 20 years some of the nation’s best runners have hailed from Ocala, despite the fact that before now there was never anyone that catered to youth running. The goal is to introduce the love of running, along with sound coaching, to youth athletes with the hopes of creating tomorrow’s stars! The Ocala Distance Project is open to athletes ranging from 6 – 18 who plan on specializing in distances from 800m to a 5k.
New this season we will be bringing in local running standout, Adam Truesdale, as our movement and injury prevention coach. Adam will work with athletes once a week for the first 10 weeks to help create more durable runners. Adam is finishing up the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the Univerity of North Florida while also training for the Jacksonville Marathon in January. A portion of the signup will help pay for Adam to create this program for us.
