WHERE

Running can be done anywhere . . . in a neighborhood, at the beach, at the ball field, or a local track. Students need to be sure they are running in a safe place.  Parents need to know where their children are when running/walking.  Everyone needs to stay safe.  TTCC will be offering a running club for kids to log miles - more info on their website at www.ttccrec.org

 

HOW

Kids can run/walk with mom, dad, brother, sister, or friend. The buddy system keeps kids safe and offers encouragement to all. Wear a good pair of sneakers and try to keep one pair just for running. Encourage kids to talk while they run. This will help them maintain an appropriate pace. It is important for kid's to eat right, stay hydrated, and get plenty of sleep.

 

 

A special marathon medal will be given to each child who brings their COMPLETED training log race day!
