Looking for a way to get your kids in shape and want them to have fun too? The Comox Valley Road Runners Junior Development Program “Run4Fun” is the way to go, say organizers.

“Run4Fun” is an initiative focused on making running a tool to guide youth toward a healthier lifestyle while making it fun and interesting.

“For the last three years the program has been a great success and coach Robyn and her team, work to make it better each year. The program is designed to promote physical fitness and healthy lifestyle choices,” the spokesperson said.

“The focus is on running and fitness but also teaches about good food choices and injury prevention. The goal of “Run4Fun” is to introduce and involve Comox Valley youth in the sport of distance or cross-country running on an ongoing basis.”

The first session will be held starting at 5 p.m. on Monday March 28 at the Vanier Track on Vanier Rd., Courtenay, with subsequent sessions held at cool running trails and parks in the Comox Valley. The program finishes on Monday, May 16.

New this year, is a “grande finale” called the National Run4Change, a 2.5/5K run to raise awareness for the plight of over 1 million Canadian children who live in poverty. The finale will be held on May 18 from Extreme Runners in Courtenay.

Cost for the Run4Fun program is $25 per participant and they receive a cool T-shirt, water bottle, training log and great memories. The Comox Valley Road Runners, Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty and Extreme Runners sponsor this program.

 

Drop into the Courtenay Lewis Center or Extreme Runners on Fifth Street in Courtenay to pick up a program information pamphlet and register. For more information about the program contact Robyn Dicesare at 250-331-0254 or e-mail robyndicesare@gmail.com.
