Welcome to JCUMC Recreation Program

BIG NEWS! GOTTA RUN KIDS WILL NOW BE OFFERING A PROGRAM AT JCUMC!

 

 

Description of Program

Our 5k program is an eight-week co-ed running program suitable for 3rd – 8th grade children. The program will develop and encourage children of all running abilities to progress from their current level of fitness to being able to complete a 5k race after the program. By reaching small milestones throughout the course of the program, the children’s self-confidence will increase in tandem with their ability to run further distances and improve their times.

 

Why Run?

The Gotta Run Kids program would be suitable for the following children:

 

  • Children who are not involved in other sports, but who want to achieve a level of fitness.
  • Children, who are involved in other sports, but need to improve/maintain their level of fitness.
  • Children who already run, but would like to improve their technique and endurance.
  • Students who are not eligible for running on the school track team due to age restrictions, but who want to prepare for track try-outs when eligible.
  • Runners wanting to “get to the next level”.
  • Children who haven’t found their “niche” in another sport.

 

What to expect

The program will involve twice weekly, one-hour practices. Practices will include, stretching, running and light core training. The eight-week program will culminate in a 5km Race (entry fee included in registration). Parents are welcome to join in the practices and run for free!

 

What you need

A pair of running shoes, a water bottle, and a smile!
