With our partner the LA84 Foundation, this 10-week program, starting on September 26, 2022, is designed to provide a sports/fitness opportunity for middle school boys & girls particularly as an introduction to the many benefits of running & racing for the “new” runner.
The program, in cooperation with several Los Angeles area school districts, utilizes existing physical education curricula and after-school programs to introduce youth to running for fun, fitness and competition. The LA84 Foundation provides a recommended weekly training regimen of introductory running games, activities & drills and material for school site publicity & promotion as well as transportation for participating schools to attend the Run4Fun Festival at Mt.
