TCRC Youth Shoe Program


The Triple Cities Runners Club is pleased to present our Youth Running Shoe Program. The goal of this program is to provide local middle school, high school, and Special Olympic runners who have a financial need with the proper footwear to participate in cross country or track.


Eligibility is determined by the youth’s coach. The coach may nominate a youth runner who needs proper footwear but may not have the financial ability to obtain it. Financial need is determined by the coach!


The referral process involves a simple email to Grace Tabeek (, TCRC board member and Secretary, stating the athlete’s name, parent(s) or guardian(s) name; school the athlete attends, a phone number or email address for the coach and what is needed (training shoes, racing flats or spikes). This information will be distributed to board members only, and the coach will be notified of the board’s decision in a timely manner.


This program is financially sponsored by the Triple Cities Runners Club, with Confluence Running providing the shoes at a discount. Please be sure to patronize Confluence Running and thank them for their support of youth programs in our area.


Coaches, please contact any one of the following with any questions or to make a referral: 

Grace Tabeek, TCRC Board Member/Secretary
