Run4Fun program is back

Junior runners will have fun while learning proper techniques

 

 

 

 

Run4Fun, a 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.

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.

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