Abington Township to host Children’s Running Program in April/May, registration now open

Abington Township announced that registration is open for the Children’s Running Program, which begins Tuesday, April 2.

The program will meet each Tuesday from 4:30pm to 5:30pm until May 21 at Alverthorpe Park and is intended for children ages 10-14.

From the program’s description:

Help your child gain confidence, strength and the ability to embrace a challenge! And those are just the mental benefits of learning to run. Add in the physical ones, and you have something extra special. Whether your child is a natural runner, or completely new to running, your child will learn how to run smart, listen to their body, and prioritize self-care in this 8-week program. With an emphasis on FUN, we will work on building endurance, setting goals, and gaining confidence together. With a focus on positivity and support, rather than metrics or athleticism, this program is designed with your child’s confidence in mind.
