2016 Raymond Recreational Association Spring Running Program

 

Registration form is HERE

 

Volunteers are always needed!

I have a signup on signupgenius.com.  I will send you the link once I have the registration form with your email.  IF you do not have access to email but would like to volunteer, please contact me.

 

Who: Children 2nd - 4th grades

 

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:15 - 4:14 pm from May 3rd - June 9th (weather dependent)

 

Cost: $15 per child (additional donations to Raymond Rec are appreciated)

 

What: A running program that will let children experience a variety of fun running activities, and build self-confidence in fitness abilities

 

Details: This is designed to be a fun, positive program that will let each child challenge him/herself through short and longer distance running, relay races, games, and stretching.  This is a running program, not a walking program.  All children are expected to be able to run.

 

Runners will meet in the gym and will run on the athletic fields and woods trails both at RES and JSMS.  Parents are expected to pick up their children at the RES field at 4:15pm.

 

The running program will be cancelled on rainy days.  Please put an email address on the sign up form so I can email everyone in the event of a cancellation.  I will decide whether or not to cancel by 10am; you may contact the school after that if you do not have access to email.

 

Volunteers are ESSENTIAL to keep this program going!  Bob Payne (18 year director emeritus) and Susan Brackett (RES teacher) will be helping occasionally, but there must be 2 adults present at all times.  You do NOT need to be a runner, but you are always welcome to run!  If everyone chips in a day or two, we'll be all set. New Volunteers to Raymond Rec will need to fill out a background check form.

 

Equipment needed for each participant:

1. Sneakers or running shoes (just well fitting, not pricey - we're running on fields and trails)

2. Running shorts and t-shirt

3. Sweatshirt or wind jacket (backup, this is Maine)

4. Water bottle (EVERY day! We cannot send kids inside for drinks)

 

Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions:

This year's U Can 5k run/walk in memory of community member Candace Woolsten will be held on June 13th in downtown Raymond.  This running program is a great preparation for the 5k.  Go to active.com and search U Can 5k for more details.  It's a great course for new runners!
