The Liberty Athletic Club, founded in 1948, is the first all-female running club in the country and continues to remain competitive locally and nationally in all age groups.


Why participate? Whether you’re at peak fitness or wanting to get there – a runner, soccer player, or other athlete – Liberty will help you get faster while having fun. Liberty focuses on gradual increases in training tailored to each runner and also on a creative, unpressured approach to speed training. (In 2012, more than 80% of women racing achieved a personal best.)


Format: Sessions will include drills; strengthening exercises; runs and intervals tailored to the girls’ current level of fitness; discussions about motivation, nutrition, and goal setting; and stretching. We’ll conclude the season with an all-team barbecue.


Cost: $200 (due by June 1 and as early as possible, as participation will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis.) Checks should be made out to the Liberty Athletic Club and mailed to Liberty Athletic Club, 19 Colonial Drive, Arlington, MA 02474.


Requirements: Membership to USA Track and Field (see to join).

Coach: Cathy Utzschneider (Ed.D., human movement, Boston University; Boston College professor of goal setting and competitive performance; USATF certified coach.)
