Kids learn the fundamentals of walking, power walking, jogging, running and sprinting so they can learn to pace themselves and run further each week. They track their distance with popsicle sticks and work toward new goals each class. The kids do super fun running games at the start and end of class, such as capture the flag, sharks and minnows, and rainbow tag. The goal each class is to run farther so by the last class of the session they are able to run 2 miles, or their personal best.
