Up and Running Jr’s
Join the Up and Running Juniors running program this summer for children entering K-8th grade. The program is designed to inspire the runner in each child by offering fun, dynamic running related games to increase fitness. The program is held at Iron Horse Park and Rosewood Park in Washington Township.
Come learn and enjoy the benefits of running through a positive and rewarding experience! Your child will be grouped by ability to meet the individual needs of your child. We have created three fun groups that we hope will suit your children’s needs based on their varying degree of development The three groups are:
Lynx-My child can run, but needs frequent walking breaks during running. They can run less than 90sec. before needing a break.
Caracal-My child can run at least 2min. before requiring a break.
Servals-My child can run a mile (8min.) without requiring a break.
For more information please contact Up and Running @ 937-432-9210 or email@example.com
2013 PROGRAM: This summer over one hundred young athletes practiced together twice a week to become better runners and formed the Up and Running Jr.’s Running Club. This is the third year for the program and it more than doubled in size this past year. Program Directors David Dobson and Brian Bucher taught many running basics and prepared the group for the culminating race. The races were held on Thursday, July 25th. Click for 2013 race results!
