Welcome to JCUMC Recreation Program
A MINISTRY OF JOHNS CREEK UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
Gotta Run Kids Registration Open
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.
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!
