Kids Run SARR Team
 
Kids Run SARR is a New Running Program for Kids
 
Kids Run SARR (KRS) is off to a great start in 2017. Last year, the kids had some wild fun with our Intro to Running program. While learning proper form, breathing, and pace setting, the kids were able to also explore the benefits of running with a SARR team. They were also able to see their improvements over the summer with our bi-weekly timed trials. From Water Balloon running activities to mock Olympic trials to Saturday morning yoga-these kids did it all in 8 weeks! 
 
We currently offer several different training programs:
  1. Kids Run SARR Intro to Running - is a fun, 10-week run program geared toward helping 6-13 year old kid's achieve consistent running habits. It will introduce pacing, both competitive and non-competitive exercises, Yoga and other overall wellness practices.  It is generally offered in the summer.  It consists of two training sessions per week
  2. Kids Run SARR 5K Training - is designed to take 10-13 year old kids (8 - 9 year old kids accepted on a case by case basis) who can already run 15 minutes without stopping up to running a 5K.  It is a 8 - week program which generally meets twice a week.
