Welcome to Project Fit Running Club
Club Goal: Finish Stronger Than the Day Before!
We are very happy you have chosen to do this after-school activity. We want to over what you are to expect for the next eight weeks. We will divide you into groups (group by grade, or by ability). Some of you may walk, some will walk and run and some will want to run the entire time. Remember we have invited you out here to have FUN and to get more active and fit. You will learn some running and stretching exercises. Hopefully you will also become more active on the other days and please encourage your friends and family to exercise with you. Why not walk to school and run on the weekends?
If some kids run and others walk, it doesn’t mean that anyone is better. Your goal in running club is to finish every day stronger than the day before. We ask that you do you PERSONAL BEST. Set your own goals over the next eight weeks. Interested? REGISTER HERE
