Staff support and school visits
KRC has three program representatives supporting schools and groups from Yarmouth to Sydney. They can help coaches tailor the program, promote participation at school assemblies, motivate participants and provide running clinics.
A runner’s handbook with training guides, tips for running, stretching exercises and information on healthy living is available for participants to view or download.
Certificate of achievement
Rewarding participants for their hard work and training is key to ensuring they get the most of the program and return the following year. Kids Run Club has designed a Certificate of Achievement for coaches to present to their participants at the end of the season.
Healthy Living Challenge
The Healthy Living Challenge (HLC) is a five-day challenge that encourages participants to be active, eat well and reduce their screen time. It can be used in conjunction with KRC or as a classroom activity.
Although the HLC can be used with learners of all ages, it may be most suitable for students in Grades 2-6.
Running log/training programs
Tracking runs is a great way to keep participants engaged and motivated throughout their training. Being able to track progress as each participant moves through the program will not only keep them from getting discouraged after a difficult run, but will also help them to build momentum over time, which is key to successful training. Kids Run Club running logs include training programs, information on running technique, and tips for success.
All Kids Run Club participants receive a finisher’s prize in recognition for completing the program. Last year, more than 17,000 drawstring bags were distributed across the province.
