Kids running program returns

Comox Valley Road Runners once again hosting Kids Run4Fun

junior running program for youth ages eight to 14 is being offered once again by the Comox Valley Road Runners (CVRR). The program begins Monday, April 15 and will be held each Monday until June 10 between 6 and 7 p.m.

Entering its fifth year, Run4Fun focuses on proper running techniques, infused with a sense of fun and adventure occurring within a dynamic social environment.  Participants can expect to learn about the general principles of physical fitness and correct running techniques – including injury prevention, nutrition and diet.

Although the program focuses on running and fitness, it also has great potential to guide youth toward making healthier lifestyle choices. Seven locations have been selected for this year’s running schedule and promise to keep running fresh and exciting for participants.

During the Grande Finale on June 10, participants will take part in fun races and each participant will receive a prize.  Each participant will also be timed and will likely be amazed at their noticeable improvement in comparison to their initial assessment of the first day of the program.  Graduates have gone on to run “fun races” including the July 1st CVRR Mile.

Cost of the program is $25 per participant, which includes a CVRR membership, a water bottle, a Run4Fun T-shirt and treats such as juice, fruit or other healthy food. The CVRR, Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty, Extreme Runners, Thrifty Foods and Rawthentic Eatery generously sponsor this program.

For more information or to register, drop-in at Extreme Runners on Fifth Street in Courtenay or call Mary Ann at 250-339-9730.
