Run to GROW is an all-inclusive virtual cross-country running program that is parent led. The objective is for students and adults to increase and improve their physical activity by running or walking. Run to GROW will provide weekly training plans and content that will help engage the caregiver in positive, quality one on one time with their student, while helping the child(ren) set a “PR” (personal record) for themselves during the 2020-2021 cross-country running season.
Because Run to GROW is a virtual program, it COVID friendly allowing families to participate in an environment that is best for them. Runs can take place in a neighborhood, park, on a local running trail, or if allowed, at school with the traditional cross-country team.
Run to GROW will align with the traditional Seminole County Public School elementary cross-country running season. Training will begin in October and end in March. On a monthly basis, participants will be encouraged to run or walk in a virtual race. These include: 10/31 - Spooky Run Walk, 11/28 - Family Turkey Trot, 12/19 - Jingle Bell Jog, 1/24 - New Year’s Fun Run, 2/27 - Run to GROW, 3/27 – Track Shack Smile Mile (optional / additional fee to participate)
Families or adult participants can choose a distance that is appropriate for their age and fitness level. During the season, the goal distance can be adjusted. Suggested distance is as follows: 7 and under: 1/2 mile, 12 and under: 1 mile, 13 and over: 1-3 miles
Race results and mileage can be entered into the Run Sign Up portal or written on a printable worksheet. If you select the printable worksheet, participants must record three or more “race day” result, email or mail the worksheet in to receive their finisher medal. If mileage is entered into the Run Sign Up portal, students will collect digital “trophies” based on miles walked or ran with a parent.
At the start of the season, each participant will receive a packet with: safety tips and how to teach your runner about pedestrian safety, one reflective safety shoe tag per registered runner, race-day bib, and information about the closed Facebook Run to GROW event page
