The Speed Factory is a track and cross-country club located here in Federal Way, Washington. Our goal is to enrich and improve young people's lives through sport, and do our part to rebuild American running. Track and cross-country provide a unique and challenging setting for young people to learn what it takes to be successful, and gives them the opportunity to develop both their mental skillsets and physical abilities. The Speed Factory programs are focused on the long term development of athletes. This means different things for different types of athletes. We look at the potential of an athlete and make a plan on how best to reach that potential. Our use of goal based training gives athletes specific targets to work towards, and we do our best to treat each athlete as an individual to allow for the highest probability of success.

2017 Summer Track Schedule. Practices will be held Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 630-8pm. We will also have morning track sessions and strength training sessions for high school age athletes 2x per week, exact times and days to be determined.
New this summer: Triathlon and Trail Running for endurance athletes. Spots are limited for triathlon (ages 14&up), and there are some requirements prior to joining. Trail Runs will be most Saturdays during the summer (ages 14&up).
Costs for summer track and xc training is $75/month, includes trail running for xc athletes. For high school athletes that want to add strength training (at Studio 1) cost will be $100/month.
We do offer scholarship opportunities for those who need it, and family discounts (more than 1 kid running with us).
Our programs continue to produce National Qualifiers at multiple distances for all age groups. For high school XC runners we have a different program set up. Its designed to prepare high school runners for the fall xc season, and hopefully be more fun and productive then the typical summer training.
