CHICAGO RUNNERS

­­The “Chicago Runners” program is designed to instill the daily habit of running and physical activity during the school day for elementary school students. Each student runs or participates in moderate to vigorous physical activity during recess, PE class, or with their classroom teacher for a minimum of 15 minutes a day, three to five times a week. Students earn incentives (i.e. water bottle, notebook, jump rope) as they achieve certain mileage milestones on the virtual marathon website, myCHICAGORUN.org.

RUNNING MATES

“Running Mates” is an after school program designed to prepare middle school students to run in a local 5k race.  Participants learn about teamwork, commitment, and perseverance through a curriculum that incorporates running workouts, goal setting, nutrition lessons, and team-building activities. Running Mates works to break down racial and cultural stereotypes by bringing students from different schools together for training runs, community service projects, local races, and other celebratory events.
