Description

The most important thing about running is that the children are doing it!

Head

  • Let your eyes lead you

Arms

  • Arm swing forward and backward 
  • Not across your body

Torso

  • Running tall, stretch yourself up
  • Don’t bend

Legs

  • High knee lift for short distance fast running 
  • Smaller knee lift , shorter strides for distance

Ankles and Feet

  • Feet should land under your body 
  • Don’t slap the ground, running is quiet.

Take breaks and have water on hand.
