MQH Boys and Girls Running Club Information

At the end of February, MQH is starting a 10 week running program from K–8th grade boys and girls. 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.


The Running Club will have many new changes this year. We will be doing lessons based on a program called “Road Runners Club of America”, with a fun mix of games from “Run for Life”.


Practices will be held at MQH and each child will receive a MQH running shirt with all their names and logos on it.


At the end of the program, the children will participate in the final mile of the Flying Pig Marathon in May, 2016 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 Certificate of Achievement for their wonderful accomplishment over the previous 10 weeks. The cost of this program is $45. Registration is open through the end of February. Log into the web site to register.  Contact Dan Smith with questions at 859-907-6642 or at [email protected].
