​​  About Spark Running Club
Spark Running Club was born in November 2014 to fill what Coach Frank saw as a huge gap in training programs for youth running. Our club located in Bethlehem, PA is specifically geared towards youth in Grades 6-12 in Bethlehem who plan to participate in Cross Country or Track and Field. Our club is an affiliate member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Through the RRCA, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. 

Should you have an interest in joining Spark Running Club, please email us at [email protected] In the event of financial hardship, scholarships are available for membership and participation in the club events and activities. We do not allow hardships to limit us. 

Spark Running Club wants to create a running revolution that transforms youth lives in our community. Together we can make a difference. Together we can change things. Together we can be extraordinary! 

Spark Running Club promotes and encourages youth running as a competitive sport that drives youth to strive for bigger goals, guides them to be better people and develops them into stronger athletes. 

Spark Running Club's vision is to "Ignite the Lives" of 6th-12th graders in their communities nationwide and to motivate and inspire youth to become productive adults who make a difference in the world
