Welcome! The purpose of this website is to assist others in the creation of before- or after-school physical activity programs, specifically a Running Club designed to prepare students to participate in a 5k. As you navigate the page you will find the need for such programs and their benefits to students and the school community. You will find tips to get a program started, as well as, help planning and organizing club meetings. A  training guide is presented to physically prepare students to run a 5k and running components to ensure a positive and successful experience. A section for finding a local 5k or creating your own fun run is provided so club members feel purpose in the training program. Finally, sample documents are provided and grant opportunities listed to help prepare your successful after-school Running Club.
