Run 4 Fun
Junior Development Running Program
MEDIA RELEASE: RUN4FUN (5 MARCH 2013)
Kids RUN 4FUN
A junior running program for youth ages 8 to 14
years is being offered once again by the Comox
Valley Road Runners (CVRR). The program begins
Monday, April 15th and will be held each Monday
until June 10th between 6:00–7:00 p.m.
Entering its 5th 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 10th, participants will take part in fun races & 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 1st 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.
