Our Running Club Program is dedicated to helping runners of all abilities improve and enjoy fitness (athletic speed, endurance, flexibility and strength) in a positive and encouraging atmosphere.
To all interested grades 4/5/6 students: Welcome back Keenooshayo Running Club members! To those of you who are new to our program, we are looking forward to working with you. Our Running Club is broken up into 2 “seasons”. During the month of September and part of October, we will focus on long distance training (anywhere from 1km to 5km) . When Running Club resumes in January (January to March) the focus will shift to short distance training (sprinting).
For the long distance training in September and October, we try to accommodate all of our student’s running abilities. We will have several (at least 3) different pace/distance groups so your child can feel challenged but not fustrated. We are looking for those students who will consistently be at practice and on time (not to mention having a POSITIVE ATTITUDE).
RUNNING CLUB BEGINS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10TH at 8:00am! (Please see the schedule for September and October below)
On Running Club days, please meet in the gym. As long as the weather cooperates, we will hold practices outside... dress for the weather (toque? gloves? track pants? outdoor shoes!)
There are many events that our Running Club members will have the opportunity to attend if they are interested and available. Our first running event will be after school on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11th at Joseph Demko School (4pm). Students will be bussed to Joseph Demko (we will leave right after school) and parents are asked to pick up their child from Joseph Demko by 5:00 p.m.The Fun Run begins at 4:00 p.m. with grade 4 girls running first then grade 4 boys…The distance is approximately 1km.
