The Mountain Lions track running program, provides a fun and encouraging environment for Elementary school aged children to learn the basics of sprints, hurdles, relays and middle distance running over a 6-week period. They will learn good running form, improve both speed and strength, while in an environment focused on the enjoyment of track running. Each participant will receive a technical shirt.
Mountain Lions is a proud partner of Lifelong Learning, and all of our running programs are held at Elementary schools within the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD). Practices are held twice a week after school, with one "introductory to Track" on Saturday, April 25th at Fairview High School included in the program. At the end of the 6-week program, all participants have the option to compete in the "Frank Shorter Track Classic" to be held on Saturday, May 16th and race over 800m (Grade K and 1) and 1-mile (Grade 2, 3, 4 and 5).
