The first Monday for the Comox Valley Road Runners’ Run4Fun Program, April 16, had a good turn out.
Twenty-five kids showed up for the youth program designed for children and youth between eight and 14 years. The weather held off and organized running activities were completed. Warm-up games, dynamics, a timed distance running event, an obstacle relay, the cool down and stretching were all part of the program.
“There were a lot of happy smiles,” a Road Runners’ spokesperson said. “It is not too late to sign up, $25 per participant. Registration is still available at Extreme Runners on 5th Street.”
Next Monday finds the group at Northeast Woods, behind Highland School. Every session is different and many topics are discussed that are all running related. The next topic focuses on nutrition and will be supported through some of the activities in the session.
“It is never too late to start running with a fun, dynamic group” the spokesperson said. “Come and see what the program is all about. The Comox Valley Road Runners would like to thank Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty and Extreme Runners for all their support.”
