2022 Program: December 3rd to February 4th
Ages: 4th grade and up
Winter Running and Fitness is a casual, outdoor program designed to keep kids moving through the colder months. The program begins on December 3rd, and meets each Saturday at 1:00pm and Wednesday at 4:00pm. The Wednesday sessions will alternate between Pennypacker Park in Haddonfield, and Knight Park in Collingswood. Saturday sessions will be at Cooper River Park, with every other week featuring a fun, no-frills race. The races at Cooper River are open to the public for a small fee, and free to kids participating in the program.
The sessions are very run-focused, as the weather is often chilly, and we have to keep moving. When the weather allows, we will learn fun ways to warm up, practice technique drills, and engage in body-weight strength training. Perhaps most important, kids will learn to dress for the weather while braving whatever winter throws our way (although we do cancel sessions for heavy snow and/or icy conditions). Please be prepared with appropriate clothing, in layers, including lightweight gloves and hats.
***Kids must be personally motivated and able to run 1 mile, continuously and without adult support, to be eligible for this program. This is not an appropriate program if you are making your kids do it.
