Closing Celebration for the Minis:

 By the end of the 8 weeks the Minis will have completed 26.2 miles and we will celebrate the last one mile together on the last program day (Thursday August 10th) We welcome the family of the runners to come and join as we finish our program with a one mile run and a celebratory picnic. The Runners will be awarded with a special metal and certificate of completion to take home.

Our program is a “drop and go” program, but parents are welcome to stay and watch as a spectator. At the start of each workout all of our Strider runners will meet their coaches for a group “Coaches Minute & Warm Up” before their games (teaching them technique and form) and workout. Following our run, we will dismiss the runners to their parents. Parents must be the ones who pick up the program participants, unless other arrangements are made by contacting Fleet Feet IN WRITING or EMAIL, PRIOR to the start of the workout.
