This season we are happy to announce the long awaited return of our FAMILY and YOUTH RUNNING PROGRAM! Parents have the opportunity to train alongside their children (ages 4-14) for a 5K race, the Tamarac Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. The program will focus on proper warm up, stretching, form, breathing, pacing, and cool down. Each session will last approx 1 hour and include post run stretching and fitness and healthy lifestyle discussions. Each ‘runner’ will be placed in a group with others of similar age and ability. The groups are coached by experienced adult runners from the NWBRRC . The program is under the overall direction of Head Coach Melissa Schwartz, USATF Level 1 Certified and Assistant Coaches Maida Velez Kopet and Doug Eaton.
Event details and schedule
All children and parents must wear suitable running shoes and clothing (dri-fit shirts and shorts are recommended for the Florida heat), bring a water bottle and towel to each session.
All participants will receive a NWBRRC Racing Team Shirt to wear on race day! Note: registration fees for the Tamarac Turkey Trot are not included.
