My friend just posted something cool that I may have to take my boys to try soon. Sounds like a great way to burn off some energy and learn more about the sport of running.
Lakeland Runners Club- Kid’s Running Program
Location – Lakeland High School Track
Time – 5:30pm- Weekly, Tuesday evenings
The Program is open to kids of all running abilities 5 years old and up. The program directors help prepare the kids for a lifetime of running. Parents do not have to be LRC members for their children to run. However, the Lakeland Runners Club does offer a student membership for only $5. The workouts will include stretching, repeats, sprints, and distance runs. As kids progress they may also want to move up to train with the adult running group that meets at 6:00pm at the same location. Parents are required to stay at the track for the entirety of the kids program.
