The Comox Valley Road Runners’ eight-week Run4Fun program will be starting April 13 and running Wednesday evenings from 6-7 p.m. until June 1.
Participants of all abilities between eight and 14 years old are invited to register for some good times playing games, meeting new friends and finding great places to run in the beautiful Comox Valley.
Run4Fun offers an educational, supportive, non-competitive environment to help kids develop their running skills, endurance, and self-confidence. The program encourages a healthy lifestyle including eating well, preventing injuries and exercising while having fun. Runners will also learn about the importance of a proper warm-up and pacing.
The program cost is $25 and includes a T-shirt and a water bottle. Spaces are limited so register soon. For more information or to register, drop into Extreme Runners on 5th Street or call Mary-Ann at 250-339-9730.
“We would like to thank our sponsors for their continuous support each year: Extreme Runners, Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty, Rawthentic Eatery, and Quality Foods,” a CVRR spokesperson said.
