PURPOSE

To promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, to provide a running enrichment program for children that offers the opportunity to improve running knowledge and skills, to participate in running events, and to meet other students in the school and the community.  The program is also designed to build self-esteem by giving children a feeling of success when they finish a race and to challenge them to improve their personal run times for future events!

Practices
Practices will be held for students in grades 3-5 on Tuesday from 2:45-4:00. Students in grades 1-2 will practice on Wednesday from 2:45-4:00 rain or shine. If it rains, we will do some activities in the gym. When we are outside, there will be several safety stations around the course where parents will be needed to monitor all of the runners. We encourage parents, who can, to come to practice and exercise with their child. We also do station work and need parents to help give encouragement to all runners. Sign up Genius is what we use to communicate who is helping at each practice. we usually need about 4 parents each practice. 

 

Note: practicing only once per week will not improve cardiovascular endurance and race performance. It is recommended that your child exercise at least 3-4 times per week to see noticeable differences in fitness and finishing times.
