MQH Boys Running Club

At the end of February 2015, MQH is starting a 10 week boys running program from K – 8th grades.  This program is designed to help your child practice a healthy, lifetime joy of running.  The program will consist of coaches who will help your child learn the basics of running with such activities as warm-up and cool down, stretching, safety, nutrition, setting goals, etc.  We will also incorporate learning character traits such as self respect, confidence, kindness, companionship, faith and values.   We will work in individual groups from beginner to advanced - based on your child’s pace and capabilities. 

Practices will be held at community parks and schools.  Parents are welcome to join in running along with the group.  Each child will receive a MQH running shirt with all their names and logos on it and a weekly planner for the 2015 season.  They are encouraged to log their miles – even on non-scheduled practice days and will receive credit for it.

At the end of the program, they will participate in the final mile of the Flying Pig Marathon in May, 2015 and cross the real “Finish Swine”.  They will get a finishers shirt, a marathon medal and all the goodies of the finish celebration. We will also have our own celebration at MQH filled with food and fun and hand out a special plaque for their wonderful accomplishment over the previous 10 weeks.  The cost of this program is $40.  Registration deadline is January 31, 2015.  Contact Dan Smith at 859-907-6642 or at [email protected] with questions about the program.
