For students that have expressed an interest in distance running beyond the Gold Rush, the new Prospect Valley Runners group will provide 3rd and 4th grade students with an after school running program designed to introduce and build an appreciation of distance running.
Beginning September 26th the Prospect Valley Runners will meet every Monday and Wednesday after school for an hour of running instruction and training. The goal is to provide students with a running foundation culminating with the running of the 2016 Prospect Valley Gold Rush. Each practice will consist of a warmup, a variety of training runs and games and a cool down.
Since the Prospect Valley Runners is a completely volunteer based group we are capping the size of the initial group to 30 students. If students enjoy the experience we will consider a spring session and the possibility of expanding the group next year.
If you have a student that is interested in being a part of the Prospect Valley Runners, please contact Carly Gernat at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your child. Once registered, you will be provided specifics for the first training session.
