Take a minute and learn some more about the ospreys.

The Rappahanock Ospreys was founded in 2015 under the Fredericksburg Area Running Club (FARC). The team is a youth running club primarily for elementary through middle school aged children. The goal of the Ospreys is to provide the area youth a safe and fun environment where they can learn the fundamentals of running through interaction with other children of similar ages and abilities, who have the desire to learn and improve their running skills. The Ospreys train year around, two to three times a week, weather permitting, with training centered on preparing to compete in local age appropriate road races, cross-country competitions in the fall, and track meets available in the winter, spring and summer seasons.

The Ospreys are coached by volunteers from the running club as well as parent volunteers who share a passion for running in the local community. Some Osprey coaches have been certified and taken part in the following nationally recognized coaches running courses; Road Runners Club of America Certification Level 1 Course and the USA Track and Field Level 1 course. Many coaches and volunteers have current and past experiences with running at the high school and college levels, as well as coaching at the area middle and high school level.
