At Run Hard we want to see your child succeed. If a child misses practice, their whole team is affected because they cannot work together effectively as a team. Workouts gradually increase in difficulty, so regular attendance enables the children to build up their strength and endurance. We realize that there will be occasional, unavoidable absences. Please communicate with your coach and/or area director if you are experiencing multiple unforeseen absences. We want the final race to be a fun and injury-free experience. We ask that each final race participant have no more than three absences. This will ensure that they have adequately prepared to run hard on race day.
Your child will receive a water bottle on the first day of practice. Please have your child bring this to every practice. Wear comfortable shoes and clothes for running. Snacks will be provided during practice for each child.
Our core values are Peer Pressure, Perseverance, Wise Choices, Work Ethic, Leadership, Teamwork, Honesty, Respect and Honor.
We want the children to see that hard work pays off. At the beginning of the season, many kids may think that a 1.5 mile run sounds very difficult. Over the course of the first few weeks, they will see how quickly their hard work pays off. Something that seemed difficult at the beginning quickly becomes a very attainable goal. On week four, the students will have 25 minutes to complete a 1.5 mile run. Once they complete that run, they will be awarded their Run Hard shirt. We encourage them to wear their hard-earned shirt the next day to school!
Please contact your area director for an application. Please ask your coach for contact information for your area director.
Each Run Hard participant will be required to have a sponsor runner on race day. The sponsor runner must be at least 16 years old. Sponsor runners run or walk the 5K course with their Run Hard participant and assume responsibility for their child in the event of an injury or illness.
