Running Club is a 45-minute program that will occur each week beginning October 2nd, 2019 & lasting through November 28th, 2019. Children will be introduced to warm-ups, sprints, & long-distance running. The goal is to have each child participate in a scheduled 5K within the Capital District alongside their friends & families. Running Club will be available to children in both AM & PM Programs & is contingent on a minimum of ten participants.
If your child is participating in Running Club, please ensure that your child is participating for the whole duration of the times listed for your site. Children must come prepared to all scheduled activities in proper footwear & attire.
