Youth Running Program
Whether as one's only organized weekly activity or as a complement to another sport, the focus of our Youth Running Program is on fun and fitness and personal bests. Throughout the session, we use fun games and activities that develop proper running form, stamina and speed. It is our primary goal to ensure that all participants finish the season with a passionate enthusiasm for running.
The Russell Run Club is providing a weekly track workout open to all ages and abilities. This is a great opportunity to meet fellow runners and be challenged with a few fast kilometres. Every week we will provide a workout
We alway begin with a warmup and finish with a cool down.
Our Learn (or Return) to Run program is for those that:
Are new to running and interested in beginning
Have ran in the past but has not ran for a few months/years and needs a program that will very gradually progress to avoid injury
Have tried to run in the past but due to injuries was forced to stop
Has had a baby recently (or not so recently) and wants to get back into running. We will select stroller friendly routes!
Looking for a change of scenery, connecting with a supportive community of runners and have some good fun while having a good workout too?
