KIDS GET READY, GET SET, LET’S GO!!!!
The MRTC KIDS! Run program focuses on children in the community and teaches them a sport we all love ~ running! Training is based on the children’s ages and abilities. In the training program the kids learn to maintain proper form when running and how to complete their assigned distance.
In addition we have teaching sessions each week that focus on a different aspect of the sport of running: how to run safely, warm up and cool down, stretching, good nutrition, running etiquette, hydration, and how to have fun while you exercise.
Training culminates in their own KIDS-only race. They will get to participate in their race, receive medals for a job well done, eat a great meal by the famous MRTC cookers, and enjoy after race snacks, door prizes and a goody bag.
The one-hour training programs are held on Saturdays in the Spring and Fall at the field below the Agricenter on Germantown Road.
