The GTC Rabbits is the Youth Running Program for the Greenville Track Club. The mission is to provide an opportunity for young people to become involved in the world's oldest fitness endeavor.

The program will be directed and coached by Ashley Lavelle, an experienced middle school, high school, and college cross country and track coach.  She is also a relatively new mother, which gives her a unique perspective. Ashley is a longtime Greenville Track Club member and has served on the board of directors. Ashley will be accompanied by some awesome volunteer coaches: Alison Parris Leonard and John Hatfield, who also share a love of running and educating youth. All coaches/volunteers are safe sport certified.
