Up and Running Jr’s
2016 was a huge success, THANK YOU parents, kids, coaches and volunteers! We’ll see you in 2017!
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.
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 2:00 before needing a break. Sustained running for distance is new for my child.
* Servals – My child can run about a mile or 8-12 min. without requiring a break. My child has attempted sustained running for distance in a practice, race, or for fun.
* Ocelot – My child has successfully sustained running a 5K during the past year.
