Fall Running Club
What is Running Club?
An after school activity run by parent volunteers who want to instill a love of running and movement in our kids so they become life-long athletes. We focus on running form, pacing and agility while making it a fun/fitness activity. Fall Running club focuses on building distance and ending in the CIM MaraFunRun.
Who should join Running Club?
Anyone who wants to have fun exercising and learning some running basics! Students don't need experience, but should bring a positive attitude and willingness to participate in all activities. Cubs can walk or jog or run, and should be prepared to move.
Is Running Club a good way to serve my child care needs?
While we don't require parents to be present, we also don't have enough coaches to sit with kids who don't want to try. Please make sure your child wants to participate. We tell the cubs who join Running Club that "Running Club is a privilege and that privilege can be taken away if you don't follow the rules."
The Crocker/Riverside Running Club promotes enthusiasm for running and gives students an opportunity to participate in an after-school fitness program. The club has four primary goals:
- Teach proper warm-ups, stretches, and running technique.
- Improve our athletes’ fitness with agility activities.
- Develop students’ team spirit and leadership skills by modeling the behavior of parent coaches and student work-out leaders.
- Most importantly, make it fun to run and play.
- The Running Club is open to all students, grades 1st through 6th grades, and is staffed by parent volunteers. Typically, the club meets once a week.
MaraFun Run - Following the California International Marathon Youth Fitness Program training, athletes gently accumulate 23 miles over 8 weeks then run the 5K (3.1 miles) maraFUNrun to complete their own marathon (includes miles run, walked or skipped at home - soccer counts too).
Held on school grounds, this parent supervised activity is well attended and fun for kids and parents alike. All sessions include warmup, running, games and stretches. All abilities welcome. Note, the maraFUNrun requires parent participation. To sign up for the maraFUNrun for free, register before November 30.
